Recruitment

Recruitment and development of exceptional teachers will always be the first priority of our school. The much quoted 2007 McKinsey report into effective education systems concluded, “no education system can exceed the quality of its teachers.” Of course, the same is true of any school. At KAA, teaching and learning is our core business, and we focus continually on improving our classroom practice. Our internal training, coaching, mentoring and lesson observation systems are of a national standard. So, whether you are at the start of your teaching career, or someone with many years of experience in the classroom, if you come and work for us you will be given professional development opportunities which are second to none. This means you will need to be reflective, open and committed to your ongoing development. “At KAA we are all learners” is one of our mantras.

More details about KAA

Kensington Aldridge Academy (KAA) is a vibrant new 11 – 18 school in Ladbroke Grove, West London. We are the flagship London school of Aldridge Education, a charitable Trust founded by Sir Rod Aldridge to sponsor entrepreneurial schools and colleges. We are also co-sponsored by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, London’s highest attaining local authority.

KAA is part of a £66 million development called the Kensington Academy and Leisure Centre project. Our stunning facilities are among the best any school could hope for. We have specialist resources in drama, music, art, design technology, sport and dance. Students have extensive use of the leisure centre and all staff benefit from discounted membership.

We opened in brand new buildings in 2014 and our facilities are second to none. We currently have 660 students in Years 7, 8, 9 & 12 with us, and are growing every year. In a recent inspection the DfE described us as, “one of the best new academies we have ever seen.” Miriam Rosen, former Ofsted Chief Inspector, said, “KAA has got off to a remarkable start and is already securing highly positive outcomes for students.”We expect our first full Ofsted next year and aim to achieve ‘outstanding’ in all areas.

At KAA we offer a quality and standard that are unique in the state sector, partnered as we are with the Godolphin & Latymer and Charterhouse independent schools and LAMDA and the Royal Academy of Dance. Situated in stunning new buildings, we have facilities to rival any school.

At KAA we are working to build an exceptional school with the highest possible standards and to do that, of course, we need an exceptional staff team. We ask a lot from our staff, expecting them to deliver excellent lessons, day in day out. We also provide extensive support and professional development opportunities. In a start-up school, with a central focus on teaching and learning, you will have the space to extend your classroom skills which would be hard to find elsewhere.

More information about the academy is available in the school prospectus and Sixth Form prospectus.
