Why Join Ivybridge Community College
Ivybridge Community College is a success-orientated establishment, which has always prided itself on supporting staff to achieve to their highest potential.
Hannah Martin - Assistant Principal
Ivybridge is an 'Outstanding College' to be a part of. Having taught for ten years in an inner city school I was fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to work at Ivybridge Community College. During my ten years at the College I have experienced several roles which has enabled me to utilise and build upon my existing skill set as a Leader; Assistant Head of PE, Head of Year, Head of Physical Education and currently Assistant Principal. The College has high expectations of both staff and students and this contributes and underpins its success. It is a dynamic and forward thinking College and one which I am proud to be a part of.
Emily Israel - Head of Social Sciences
After completing a degree in Psychology and a PGCE in Secondary Science, I started working at Ivybridge as an NQT teaching KS3 Science, Psychology and Sociology A Level. As I progressed throughout my first couple years of teaching I knew my passion lay with my degree subject and I was able to secure an Assistant Head of Department position (Human Sciences Faculty) in my third year of teaching and i have since been promoted to Head of Social Sciences. I have had some excellent professional development opportunities at Ivybridge, from working as a Mentor for trainee teachers and NQTS, completing the NPQML course to finishing a Master’s degree in Education in my 3rd year of teaching. Most recently, I have been privileged to facilitate OLEVI courses across our MAT, such as the Outstanding Teachers Programme. I have been able to work closely with the Teaching and Learning Team and I am very proud of the constant high standard of lessons delivered at Ivybridge. It is a very fast paced school with high expectations of both students and staff, but this allows for many professional development opportunities and an engaging and well planned curriculum for students.
