Working At Harlington

Dear Prospective Colleague,

Thank you for showing an interest in working here at Harlington School. If successful, you will be joining a dynamic and passionate team of highly professional associate and teaching staff, who put the children in our community at the heart of everything they do.

Harlington has undergone a transformational change in the last couple of years, with a significant improvement in progress outcomes, examination results and a rapidly improving reputation in the local community.

However, we still have lots to achieve – our aim is to become an Outstanding school in the very near future. In order to achieve our aim, we need colleagues who have a passion for working in a vibrant, multicultural school, who have a ‘glass half  – full’ personality, and who see challenges as ‘the job’ and not barriers to success.

We cherish our staff here, and improving professional practice and pedagogy is key to our work. We see professional development in teaching and leadership as the cornerstones of our success.

Whatever post you are applying for, you will be incredibly well supported in your professional development to become an outstanding practitioner. We are highly regarded by ITT providers for the quality of training that we offer to colleagues at the beginning of their careers, and for more experienced colleagues, professional development is a key priority, and colleagues are frequently promoted after working with us.  We work very hard here, but the rewards are immense.

We welcome visits to the school prior to application – please contact us if you would like to see us in action.

We are also very keen to hear from colleagues who may wish to have their details kept on file for when future vacancies may arise.

I would like to wish you every success in your future career.

Yours sincerely

Liz Horrigan,
Headteacher
