Lammas School is a secondary school with VI Form provision in Leyton, East London. We have been serving the community for 18 years since we opened in September 2001 and are proud of the impact we are making on the lives of our young people.
In these exceptional times we will do our best to show you the heart of Lammas so that you can get a sense of how well matched you may be to our professional community as a school and indeed as a Trust. Please look at our website (which is rather out-dated and in the process of a total re-build) and explore the Trust website as fully as you can ( www.griffinschoolstrust.org). You will see evidence of the shared life of the schools in the Trust in events such as the Science Symposium, the Arts Festival, the Sports Festival and Founders Day.
The Trust really is a family of schools which work closely together within and across phases and
geographical hubs. So in joining Lammas you do have good relationships with local authority schools and projects but you also have a strong working relationship with your peers in two secondary schools in Milton Keynes and North Warwickshire as well as day to day involvement with our two GST neighbour primaries, Willow Brook and Riverley, both outstanding and one a shining example of what a Griffin Great School looks and feels like. It is that journey to Griffin Great that informs our development planning. Ofsted validates our progress within a defined national framework: it emphatically does not set our agenda.
Please read the attached Griffin Great descriptors very carefully because that is the culture and performance you will be helping us to build should you join us. Your research into Lammas
will help you see how far we have yet to travel. Ofsted judged us ‘Good’ in 2017 but we know we are some way from Griffin Great.
Having researched sufficiently to decide to apply, please tell us in no more than two sides of A4 in 11 point
(1) why you want to join Lammas School as Head of Science and what you see as our challenges (2) why your personal track record matches or exceeds our requirements.
Please include a full cv with the names and direct contact details of two referees and the completed Safer Recruitment form. We will contact your referees before shortlisting. We may also have a phone call with you.
We will conduct interviews by video link and may also set you brief management tasks as part of the process.
Completed applications should be addressed to Graham Clifford and sent to
The deadline for application is Sunday 07 June 2020.
If you would like a confidential exploratory call once you have done initial research into Lammas School and the Griffin Schools Trust, please email email@example.com who will make an appointment.
