About United Learning

United Learning is a unique group of independent and state schools working together to achieve the best in everyone. Our vision is to provide excellent education so that all young people are able to make a success of their lives.

About The Totteridge Academy

The Totteridge Academy joined United Learning in October 2016. The last Ofsted inspection in 2015 judged the school as ‘requiring improvement’, but it has already begun a journey of rapid progress under new leadership and is confident about becoming an outstanding school in the future. In one year results have improved dramatically: the number of students gaining 5+ good passes including English and Maths increased from 40% in 2016 to 67% in 2017. This is an exciting time to join The Totteridge Academy: if you share our high expectations and are passionate about making a difference then we look forward to receiving your application!
