Exciting and Challenging Environment
I have worked in many schools and I can say that working at Holland Park was a pleasure. It was a great opportunity to work with excellent colleagues and be exposed to a professional and career centered enviroment.

Horrific place to work
Awful, toxic environment. I worked at least 70hrs a week to get by, nothing was good enough, I did not feel valued or respected. Having nice candles and expensive paint on the walls was more of a priority than providing teachers with sufficient printing credit, equipment, and LSAs for students with needs.

Terrifying management
Unacceptable management style. Bullying management culture pupil are enjoyable and talented. Clear space to work and direction on what needs to be done

Lovely kids, unacceptable management
The management preyed on inexperienced teachers who know no better: the stress and expectations placed on staff here were neither normal nor necessary.NQTs who worked a minimum of 12 hours per day - plus weekends - were idolised rather than helped. Other staff were made to feel guilty for going to the gym or making half term plans.Lessons were theatrical, in that they were largely for show - as were many of the school’s burdensome, legalistic, and frankly excessive policies. I would not recommend working here.

Fast Paced and professional setting
I am approaching my twentieth year now that I have been working at Holland Park School. In the time that I have worked at HPS I have seen the changes that have been good for the students and staff. NQTs have gone on to become Leadership or leading practitioners. Staff development has always been crucial to the development of the school I am proud to be part of institution that strives and continues to improve the welfare and the wellbeing of students. I have seen the constructive changes that has led to HPS being a teaching school. I feel I have been lucky to be part of an institution that is consistently determined to give every student from whatever their background the opportunity to gain decent grades or outstanding grades to support them with the challenges that lay ahead for them. I am proud that my line manager is a teacher who I witnessed going from being a maths teacher to a lead teacher and then on to a member of the leaderships team.Being from the local community, I remember a time when parents didn’t want their children to attend the school as it had a bad reputation, however now it is the total opposite. Parents’ evenings were embarrassing, now it is the complete opposite as parents are extremely keen to attend parents’ and open events. When I started the exam results were in the 30th percentile but now they are in the 90th percentile. I believe that teachers and associate staff are treated as valued members of HPS. As they say, to make a perfect curry you need every ingredient just like Holland Park School needs all teachers and staff to play their part in their students’ education and achievements. I have pure respect for the achievements the school has gained under the leadership of the Head and the Academy Head not because they are my managers, but for the achievements that local students would have not achieved under a different leadership. I say if you want the experience of what and outstanding school is, try Holland Park School.
