We are currently advertising for a permanent, full time KS2 teacher, a full time KS1 teacher and a part time maternity cover teaching position. 

Hope Community School is evolving and growing and we have opportunities for two teachers who want to join the exciting journey. Our teaching and learning is based on creativity, openness, adventure and excellence and these are underpinned by our Christian values and ethos. We believe that the child is at the heart of all we do. If you want to work in a small Community School which believes in supporting the child and their family through their primary education years, giving them the best start possible, apply to join our team.

New Generation Schools Trust opened Hope Community School in September 2013, a Free School set up with the full support of the Government in response to local needs and to improve education for children within their community.

Through a Christian ethos and strategically planned personalised curriculum delivered in partnership with other outstanding education partners, the school provides an excellent education experience for children and families. With our child-centred, family-focused and community-oriented approach to education we enable the children of Sidcup and Foots Cray to achieve fantastic things.

At Hope Community School each pupil is developed academically, socially and emotionally working in partnership with his or her family and community.  As part of this team, you will shape our school’s culture and its systems as we grow, to ensure that we provide the aspirational, engaging and personalised education that our children deserve by building on each child’s unique gifts, talents and particular needs.

We want to create an exciting and vibrant school that celebrates achievement and diversity.  Education should be engaging and we want to inspire children to learn and develop beyond the walls of a School using links with local businesses, offering practical and vocational opportunities as well as traditional pathways. Our vision is to link school and community, teaching the value of each other, in order to better prepare both for their futures

We are looking for two highly motivated, enthusiastic and dedicated teachers to join our happy and committed team.
