We intend to interview on Skype for this role during the Week Commencing 28th of January 2019.The SchoolThe Haberdashers’ Aske’s Boys’ School (‘HABS’) has an international reputation for academic excellence and success, combined with exceptional pastoral care and co-curricular achievements. In 2016 the Sunday Times voted HABS as the Independent School of the Year (2016- 17), an impressive accolade. The School is an independent day school with around 1,200 11–18-year-old boys in the Senior School and another 200 boys from the age of 7 in the Preparatory School, which is situated on the same site. A Pre- Prep School for 75 boys aged 5 and 6 is located in nearby. The School’s grounds adjoin those of its sister school, the Haberdashers’ Aske’s School for Girls and an extensive and long-established coach service brings pupils and staff from across a wide area. HABS moved to its current 100-acre rural location in 1961, occupying the grounds of a former stately home: Aldenham House, a Grade 2* listed building, located 15 miles North of the centre of London. A series of magnificent new buildings have been opened in the last decade including a new £13m Sports Facility in 2016. The construction of a state-of-the-art classroom complex at the heart of the campus, specifically designed to reflect international best practice in school design and pedagogy will open in 2018/2019. HABS’ aim is to nurture excellence within its established values of wisdom, integrity and humility. The members of the teaching staff are united by a caring approach, passion for their subject areas and the aspiration to be dynamic, modern and reflective practitioners. Examination results are outstanding, places are heavily oversubscribed and entry is extremely competitive. Boys achieve national prominence in many fields from music, drama and sport to science and Mathematics Olympiads, chess and public speaking. The current intake of boys is exceptional, also graded as Excellent in the ISI inspection report, and the School has been placed at the top of the national league tables. Education at HABS, however, is about more than just academic success. The boys are bright, articulate and open, interested and extremely rewarding to teach. They have a great sense of humour and are very well mannered. Pastoral care is exceptional, with a strong House-based system. Out-of-class activities abound, with many boys assuming responsibility for the running and organisation of events and societies. Music, drama and sport are strong, and there is also a thriving Outdoor Leadership programme and CCF together with a strong and active Community Service programme. HABS’ boys regularly reach the finals of national competitions, such as chess, bridge and debating, but there is also a remarkable commitment to outreach and charity work, reflecting the rich and harmonious ethnic and religious diversity of the School. A Church of England School by tradition, other religious communities flourish with popular, voluntary assemblies on Thursday mornings for the many different faith groups which are represented in the School. This approach to all faiths was highly commended in the current ISI inspection report. The School awards a number of scholarships on entry, but the majority of its funding goes into the provisionof bursaries for cases of financial need. A very successful Development Foundation exists to broaden participation in the life of the School and encourage philanthropic giving. More detailed information about the School and its history is available on the School website: www.habsboys.org.uk and through the Good Schools Guide www.goodschoolsguide.co.uk The Teaching Staff The members of the Teaching Staff are drawn from a wide range of backgrounds and reflect the diversity within the School. There is an equal balance between male and female teachers within the Senior School. All are well qualified, but not necessarily with a formal teaching qualification, and have strong subject knowledge with a deep sense of commitment to the welfare of the boys and to helping them achieve their very best. There is a strong sense of community within the Common Room and it is a harmonious and dynamic place where staff work hard in a collaborative and purposeful atmosphere. There is a growing international dimension to the work of the staff with regular visits overseas and the School is looking to forge links with the best schools across the globe. Support for staff at every stage of their career is exceptional, with one of the foremost and forward- thinking professional development plans in the UK. Pedagogy and teacher development takes a collaborative approach which is both voluntary and open-minded. Many teaching staff regularly attend Learning Lunches where their peers will demonstrate new developments or ideas with which they have been experimenting. In addition, teachers can request specific training which is often run in well attended Twilight Training sessions at the end of a school day. The School operates an ‘open door’ approach with teachers regularly observing each other and learning from their colleagues. Every member of the teaching staff is a form tutor and is expected to participate in the School’s rich array of extra-curricular and sporting subjects. The main sports are Rugby, Field Hockey, Soccer, Athletics and Cricket and the magnificent new swimming pool facility will support the profiles of Swimming and Water-Polo, sports which we are already National champions in. There is a sixth form Enrichment and Enhancement programme within which members of staff are encouraged to share a personal academic interest, pastime or pursuit. The list of available subjects ranges from Geology to Salsa dancing with a gamut of topics in between. Members of the teaching staff lead over 60 clubs and societites which include outreach programmes and charity fundraising projects. HABS will also find ways to encourage members of staff to share and support appropriate interests. Newly Qualified Teacher Programme The School is committed to providing high quality training and support to newly qualified teachers (NQTs). Working in partnership with The Independent Schools Teacher Induction Panel (IStip), the School expertlyguides them through their induction year with experienced mentoring from a departmental colleague and offers ongoing opportunities for lesson observation and pedagogical debate. The School is a centre of excellence for training: we host regular regional conferences where we welcome NQTs from across London and Hertfordshire to participate in professional studies programmes designed by HABS’ staff. Our NQTs experience a rich, varied teaching experience during the first year of their careers, giving them the confidence and expertise to become highly effective, reflective classroom practitioners. The Aske – Princeton International Fellowship The Haberdashers’ Aske’s Boys’ School prides itself on its core values of Humility, Wisdom and Integrity. The School has an international outlook and seeks to develop its values within every pupil so that they can make a positive impact on the wider community. Each year the School employs a small number of graduate or post-doctoral students who are looking to find experience in the educational sector, broaden their horizons and most notably in an outstanding English independent school. Academic Teaching Our interns and fellows are supernumerary and assist with academic and extra-curricular activities throughout the School. Each individual brings to our provision up-to-date scholarly and expert subject knowledge as well as a motivating presence. The precise nature of the role will be shaped to fit the strengths and availability of the candidate appointed. The School would welcome applications from any academic discipline but an interest in any of the following departments would be an advantage: Art Biology Chemistry Earth Sciences: Geography & Geology Engineering English Literature Mathematics (Pure, Mechanics or Statistics) Music Physics Theology & Religion Philosophy Enrichment & Enhancement The School offers an exciting enrichment and enhancement programme within the 6th Form curriculum. Lesson time is provided to stretch the pupils beyond the confines of the examination boards in areas of individual academic interest for each teacher. In addition each boy chooses an enrichment course which develops him as an all-round individual. It is expected that the Aske-Princeton International Fellow will contribute to both parts of this programme by offering an international perspective to the pupils. In addition, assistance with the preparation of pupils for university applications, especially US applications, is necessary.Co-curricular The co-curricular programme within the School is extensive, offering a variety of sports. All pupils are encouraged to develop a passion for fitness and well-being, alongside nurturing interests in any sport. The diverse extra-curricular programme allows pupils to develop personal confidence which they then transfer to their academic studies. This provision is supported by excellent sporting facilities such as our new state-of the art Sports’ Centre. In addition to Sport the School has an enviable reputation for its Drama and Music, with regular performances at the Barbican in London. Aske - Princeton International Fellow’s timetable The Aske-Princeton Fellow’s weekly timetable will depend upon the successful candidate’s interests and attributes. School Day & Academic Year The School timetable is split into 35 lessons, each 45 minutes in length. The School operates from 08.30 to 17.30, Monday to Friday. There are no lessons on weekends and staff are free, unless involved in sport or extra-curricular pursuits. The School academic year begins on September 1st and ends in the first week of July. The year is split into three ‘terms’ each varying in length. Autumn Term: First week of September to the third Week of December Spring Term: Second week of January to March/April (dependent upon Easter) Summer Term: March/April (dependent upon Easter) to First week of July Each term is further divided by a half term holiday; Autumn Term holiday is 2 weeks, Spring Term holiday is 1 week, Summer Term holiday is 1 week. In total the School is in operation for 170 days per year, although staff are paid for the time they are on holiday. Teacher timetable A normal teacher, with no responsibilities, will typically teach 26 lessons per week. It is envisaged that the Aske-Princeton Fellow will be timetabled for 18 lessons a week (approximately 50% of the week and 70% of a normal teacher’s loading). The contribution of the Aske-Princeton Fellow will depend on their individual skills and attributes, but may include: You are not required to disclose information about a spent caution if you were under 18 years of age at the time of the offence and two years has elapsed since the date it was issued, and provided it does not appear on the list of "specified offences".
