Leventhorpe 2017 Sixth Form 1043 

We seek to recruit staff with high expectations of themselves and their students, and who are keen to introduce innovation and creativity into the classroom. Leventhorpe is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. A DBS disclosure is required for all successful applicants.

Leventhorpe School is an outstanding mixed, 11-19 secondary school and sixth form in the historic market town of Sawbridgeworth, Hertfordshire. The school became a Business and Enterprise Academy in August 2011. The intake at age 11 is drawn mainly from the pleasant and prosperous towns of Sawbridgeworth and Bishop's Stortford and from the surrounding villages. Demand for places in the school is very high with over four applications for each place. A good number of students travel significant distances to attend. In order to better meet the demand for places the governing body have exciting plans to expand the roll from 6FE to 8FE. An extensive capital works plan has been developed to provide additional accommodation and top rated facilities for all of our students.

In recent years, Leventhorpe has experienced an intensive capital build programme including sports facilities (sports hall, fitness suite, dance studio, all weather pitch and floodlit tennis courts) and Learning Resource Centre. Our new Head will be joining at a very exciting time in the further development of our facilities with our expansion plans including a new, state of the art, performing arts block alongside a brand new science and sixth form block. These facilities will represent a further £7M investment in the school and will commence in September 2018.
