About us

The Misbourne officially opened on 20 January 1956 and was the first modern built secondary school in the UK. Over the years the school has expanded and developed to include many more facilities and buildings for our students and staff, retaining its modern, open feel.

In January 2018, The Misbourne converted to a single academy. Today, we are a multi-cultural, co-educational school with 1,021 students currently on roll: one hundred and eighty students in each year group 7-11 and 170 in our growing Sixth Form. The Misbourne has more than 100 teaching and support staff who work as a team to achieve our mutual goals.

The Misbourne enjoys a spacious and attractive campus which provides purpose- built, subject specific areas, tennis courts and extensive playing fields. The academy is fortunate to have a new building for the Sixth Form, English department and café; three new IT suites and a multi-million pound development for a brand new sports centre is currently under construction. The school also provides staff parking.


About the role

The Misbourne is an aspirational and friendly place to work where every student and member of staff is a valued member of our community. With strong and consistent leadership, you can be assured of a genuine commitment to supporting your day-to-day practice and long-term professional development.

Philosophy and Ethics is a very popular and successful subject at both GCSE and at A-level and this is an exciting opportunity for the right colleague to join us and help shape and develop the subject onto the next phase in its development.

We are an 11-18 school in the picturesque village of Great Missenden in the heart of the Chilterns. We have just over 1000 students on roll including a successful and growing Sixth Form.

About you

Our vision is to develop world class students who have the belief in themselves that anything is possible and go on to lead happy and successful lives. If you feel that you too could play a part in helping us achieve that vision, for every student, then this could be the role for you.

Whether you are starting out in your career or looking for your next challenge, our Humanities faculty has a breadth and depth of experience, with colleagues who thrive in a hard-working and innovative team built over many years. This post would suit an NQT or a more experienced teacher.
