Current Vacancies

At Chestnut Grove we firmly believe that empowered staff are the best performing staff. We derived our Curriculum Intent from conversations with ALL of our staff, support and teaching alike, when we asked them why they come to work every day. The 6 values we have all agreed to uphold – inclusion, social mobility, creativity, life-long learning, PROUD, leading fulfilling lives - are threaded into our Curriculum Intent, whilst its Content rests on our determination to unlock the power of diversity through Pluralism of Perspective.

Our staff are incredibly dedicated to improving lives through education and we strive to support them in their mission. No one can serve others unless they have served themselves, which is why professional development and staff wellbeing are paramount at Chestnut Grove.

Student voice is the basis of our recruitment and retention strategy. Our students tell us they want staff who care, understand their different experiences and are excellent teachers. They want happy and healthy teachers as their role models.

At Chestnut Grove, there are endless opportunities to learn and grow: you will have access to a broad range of professional development programs through our Teaching Hub; liaise with a number of primary schools in our Trust; access nationally recognised leadership programs; access coaching and mentoring; and be encouraged to create your own learning pathway.

You will benefit from being in the heart of Balham, right next to the Balham tube and train stations, ensuring all amenities are within easy reach and no commute is arduous.
