Join our free school adventure .
The West London Free School is an all-ability secondary school that asks every child to learn Latin and do at least eight academic GCSEs or IGCSEs. That expects every pupil to transfer to the Sixth Form and go on to a good university. That takes children from the poorest backgrounds and gives them the confidence and ambition to take on the world.
Our core belief is that every child is entitled to a classical liberal education, no matter what their background or ability. Of our 240 children in Years 7 and 8, 25 per cent have special educational needs, 28 per cent are on free school meals and 50 per cent have English as an additional language, yet they've all proved eminently capable of tackling an academically demanding curriculum based around traditional subjects. They also enjoy sport, music and art, with two-thirds of the pupils learning a musical instrument. In time, we hope to prove it's possible to create a comprehensive grammar - that is, a school that combines the rigour and standards of an old-fashioned grammar with a genuinely comprehensive intake. We know this type of school is popular with local parents. After just 18 months, we're already the most oversubscribed state secondary in the borough, with 10 applicants for every place.
We want teachers who:
- Are passionate about their subjects and can model the right pedagogical approach
- Have track records of outstanding teaching and outcomes for pupils
- Have a good grasp of what it means to develop a rigorous, knowledge-based curriculum
- Offer a substantial commitment to extra-curricular activities
