Mathematics Subject Leader

Candidate Brief

Bolingbroke Academy, c/o ARK Schools
65 Kingsway

January 2012

Dear candidate,

Thank you for taking the time to find out more about Bolingbroke Academy and the possibility of
working here. Included in this brief is information about the academy, ARK Schools (who sponsor the
academy) and the role of Mathematics Subject Leader.
In September 2012, we will welcome our first year 7 pupils to our new school in the former Bolingbroke
Hospital. We will welcome another 120 year 7 pupils every year and the school will be fully subscribed in
2018, with 600 places for 11 – 16 year olds and a sixth form.
Bolingbroke Academy will have high aspirations for all its pupils. We will aim for the highest standards of
educational achievement: we will respect and value every pupil and support each to reach their full
This is a challenging and highly rewarding leadership opportunity. As one of the first free schools to be set
up in London, supported by ARK Schools and a committed network of local parents, this role is tailor-
made for an ambitious mathematics teacher with outstanding leadership skills. The successful candidate
will develop teaching and learning in the mathematics department and lead the academy’s specialist
subject, ensuring the academy’s vision of high standards and academic achievement is upheld.
I want Bolingbroke Academy to be an outstanding local school and a strong part of the local community.
It was founded after a campaign for a non-selective local school by Battersea parents and residents and
our home is a building that’s been at the heart of its community for 132 years. Our heritage is that of a
community committed to the achievement and opportunity of all its citizens – a commitment our school
will share.
If you share our commitment to educational excellence, we want to hear from you.

Our Vision
We have high aspirations for all our pupils. We will aim for the highest standards of educational achievement. We
will respect and value every pupil and support each to reach their full potential. Our motto, Fortiter ubique, or
“Ever courageous” is based on the motto of the Bolingbroke & St John’s League of Friends. It came from the
family coat of arms of Canon John Erskine Clarke, who was vicar of St Mary’s Church, Battersea and a founder of
the Bolingbroke Hospital. It embodies our belief that perseverance, self-discipline and determination will enable our
students and staff to succeed at school and beyond.
We will realise our vision by adopting the following core principles:
Excellence: exceptional expectations and achievement for all pupils.
Whatever it takes: pupils, teachers and parents all committed to doing everything needed to ensure that each
child succeeds.
Responsibility and respect: excellent standards of behaviour and conduct in school and the local community
at all times.
Personal development: developing confidence and leadership skills through inspiring teaching and role
models, and an extended and enriching curriculum.
Talented and committed staff: trained and supported to create an academic centre of excellence.
We are building a skilled and committed team to create a centre of academic excellence. We are drawing on ARK
Schools’ exceptional experience of developing outstanding new schools to establish a strong and positive culture
and rigorous academic programme.
The Curriculum
Our aim is for 100% of pupils to achieve at least five GCSEs at A*–C including English and mathematics and for
90% of pupils to successfully complete the English Baccalaureate (six good GCSEs including English, maths, two
science qualifications, one humanity and one modern foreign language). All ARK schools expect at least 80% of
pupils to achieve at least five GCSEs including English and mathematics.
The Bolingbroke curriculum will have excellent English and mathematics teaching at its core, to provide the
strongest possible educational platform for all subjects. We will set very high achievement targets for all pupils and
organise the curriculum and teaching to make it possible for all pupils to reach their targets. Pupils entering the
school with attainment below the level expected for their age will follow a curriculum designed to accelerate their
progress so that they can participate fully.
The academy will offer a full curriculum at GCSE and A level and a selection of other courses to ensure a
programme which challenges and meets the needs of all pupils. We expect almost all pupils to continue to study at
least one humanities subject and a language up to the age of 16. Courses such as the International Baccalaureate and
Pre-U will be considered once the likely demand for such programmes is known.
Subject Specialisms
Like all ARK academies, Bolingbroke Academy will specialise in mathematics. We also have a strong focus on
music, which helps develop self-expression, self-discipline, performance and team work as well as building a strong
sense of community through collective participation. Our aim is for every pupil to play an instrument confidently
and to take part in regular performances.

About ARK Schools
ARK Schools runs a network of eleven academies in London, Portsmouth and Birmingham. ARK Schools was
created in 2004 to work with the Department for Education and local authorities to create new schools offering
exceptional opportunities to children in inner cities through the academies programme.
Our aim is to help close the achievement gap between children from disadvantaged and more affluent backgrounds.
Our academies focus on raising attainment so that every pupil has a real choice of going on to higher education
when they complete school. Our schools are non-selective, community schools for local children. They are non-
denominational other than where they replace a school that previously had a religious affiliation. ARK’s academies
are generally situated in deprived urban areas – just under half of pupils at ARK secondary schools are on free
school meals, compared to around 15% nationally.

New schools: ARK will be opening a number of primary schools as academies in London and across the UK
(with specific locations to be finalised). Furthermore, four secondary schools will also be opening in 2012, including
Isaac Newton Academy in Redbridge, Essex and Bolingbroke Academy in Wandsworth, London.

Our Vision
Our vision is to create a group of outstanding schools that radically improve our pupils’ life chances. We
want every pupil at an ARK academy to do well enough by the age of 18 to go to university or pursue the career of
their choice. To achieve this we prioritise six key principles across our schools:

We set exceptionally high expectations for all our pupils which we reinforce constantly as they go through school.
We believe every child can realise their potential with the right teaching and support.

Our schools are characterised by a respectful and orderly environment, where teachers can focus on teaching and
pupils on learning.
All our schools aim for uninterrupted teaching and learning to make exceptional achievement possible. We don’t
accept excuses and we don’t make any either.

Nothing is more important than excellent teaching, underpinned by high quality professional development. We
make intelligent and appropriate use of data to improve teaching and the curriculum and to ensure that no child is
