08th June 2012 Dear Applicant, Appointment of Teacher of English MPS/UPS + Outer London Allowance Thank you for requesting an application pack for the above post at Canons High School. Enclosed you will find the application form, job description, person specification and some other documents that I hope give you a flavour of our school. Canons High School is multi-ethnic, multi-faith 11 – 19 comprehensive school for over 1000 students. This is an excellent time to be joining Canons. Not only have results been steadily improving over recent years, but we have been designated as a “High Performing Specialist School” (2011) and were judged to be an Outstanding School following our inspection in April 2010. I do hope that you will take the time to read this report – we are very proud of it! In 2011 GCSE examination results were our best ever with 84% achieving five or more passes at grades A* - C, and 57% achieving 5 or more passes including English and Mathematics. The school achieves very good value-added outcomes but we are not complacent. We have high expectations and seek to ensure that every pupil achieves the best they can at every level and in all areas of school life. In 2011 we were delighted to be presented with the Evening Standard School of the Year Award. Also, we have been awarded Leading Edge status and have become the first high school in Harrow to be accredited with the national NACE award for our exceptional provision for able, gifted and talented students. Our bid for redesignation as a science specialist school was successful, as was our bid to take on a second, applied learning, specialism. We are delighted both with the impact on pupil achievement to date as well as with the significant extra funding these specialisms have brought. Added to this our Sixth Form opened in September 2007, together with an extensive building programme. Our new state- of-the-art Post-16 building opened in July 2009. We have a truly excellent and supportive staff and we are equally proud of our students who are enthusiastic and keen to learn. Relationships between students, staff and students/staff are very good and are a significant feature of our highly positive ethos. We have achieved a great deal but recognize that there is a lot more to do as we continue to move from outstanding to great, ‘raising the bar’ in all that we do. We are committed to doing all that we can to ensure that every student is fully supported to achieve his or her potential. We are seeking to appoint a talented and innovative specialist who has high expectations of all pupils, is enthusiastic, inspirational, passionate about English and wants to make a real impact on teaching and learning both within the Canons High School is a Private Limited Company.
