Staff Stories

Redden Court recognises and rewards hard work, enthusiasm and commitment to success. They have given me the opportunity to progress from an NQT to a Head of Faculty and now my current role as an Assistant Head within five years. I have been encouraged to introduce new technology to the school and work on a number of interesting projects. The staff and students are a pleasure to work with and our team ethic is impacting positively on our results and achievement. The school's progress in recent years has been phenomenal and there are exciting times ahead as we lead the Multi-Academy Trust to support other schools and continue to expand our own vision and ethos.

Mr Carrington, Assistant Head

Redden Court is a wonderful school and has supported me over the years with each stage of my professional progression. I started my training here as GTP in 2007, became leader of the house system, second in Maths and then Head of Faculty in January 2014. More recently, I have gained Lead Practitioner accreditation and when I returned to work after having my son, I was promoted to Lead Practitioner for Maths across the the Success for All Educational Trust. I have been given huge opportunities and been supported each step of the way.

Redden Court is a wonderful teaching environment, with excellent resources and students who make you love the job! If you are a good teacher, with great ambition and enthusiasm you will be supported and encouraged to go on and achieve fantastic things in your career at Redden Court.

Miss Todd, SFAET Leading Practitioner of Maths

I started as PA to the Head Teacher of Redden Court School over 10 years ago. Since then I have been promoted to PA to the Executive Head Teacher of the Success for All Educational Trust and line manage the reception area of Redden Court School.

During my time here I have helped the school achieve the Gold TFL Stars Award, help plan and organise school trips and assisted colleagues in achieving Thinking Schools Accreditation.

I have always felt supported, empowered and challenged in my role and am considered a valuable member of the school team.

Miss Morris, PA to Executive Head Teacher

I arrived at Redden Court School as an NQT, and at the time I never thought I would progress as quickly as I have. This is a school that really recognises and rewards hard-work. From the very start I had the responsibility of being a subject leader in Product Design, then after only two years I progressed to Head of Department in Design and Technology, and in my fifth year at the school I was made Head of the Technology Faculty. I have had a key involvement in much of the school signage and have had opportunities to run school trips and lead a STEM club. This is an ambitious and supportive school full of great staff, and in my opinion there is no better place to pursue a career in teaching.

Mr Pendred, Head of Technology Faculty

I joined Redden Court in 2012 shortly after the school converted to Academy Status in January 2012. From that time I have learned something new every day. Little did I know the range of experiences I would have within the school. I have enjoyed every single day I have worked in the school and am extremely proud of the outcomes the students achieve and the part that I play in that. We are about to encounter an exciting time at the school with the formation of the Multi Academy Trust and building works through the Priority Schools Building Programme that will enhance the quality of provision for our students.

Redden Court is a school where I want to come to work with enthusiasm each day and I am empowered by an amazing leadership team.

Mr Barrett, Business Manager

I joined Redden Court School as a Learning Facilitator in 2016. I was immediately impressed (and inspired) by the dedication of the staff and the attitudes the students had towards learning. It is clearly evident that the school acknowledges the all round importance of the students wellbeing. I quickly became involved in the Futsal team and have managed them in competitions at the Copperbox in London. I also co-founded the Sports for Confidence team which has participated in various tournaments and competitions around the Greater London area. Redden Court School has afforded me the opportunity to advance in my career. As a result of that I have become the schools Learning for Behaviour Mentor. It is a privilege to be part of a team that truly reflects its ethos of "Success for All".
