Sydney Russell is an over-subscribed 11-18 school serving an expanding population in an area of London which is benefiting hugely from the regeneration of the East Thames Corridor and the impact of the nearby 2012 Olympics. The school prides itself on its warm and friendly atmosphere, with positive relationships between staff and students at the centre of its success. The school was judged by Ofsted as 'Good with outstanding features' in November 2008 and is amongst the top-performing 5% in the country for added value.
Staff benefit from innovative behaviour management structures and support which ensure that teachers can concentrate on teaching, and all lessons take place in ability-banded groups to enable work to be efficiently targeted at the right level of challenge. The school is two thirds through a £26 million rebuilding programme and already has excellent ICT facilities.

The Sydney Russell School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We expect all staff to share this commitment and to undergo appropriate checks including enhanced CRB checks.
