Edgar Wood Academy is a brand-new school commissioned by the DFE to serve the community of Middleton and Heywood. Our vision is to help our students realise their potential through a culture of high standards and academic success, strong and consistent behaviour expectations and mutual respect. Our aim is to inspire and engage all pupils, regardless of prior attainment or social background.
You will be joining our school at an incredibly exciting stage, being part of the team that is building the school from its foundations, helping to create the ethos, values and culture. At Edgar Wood Academy we believe in strong discipline, which allows our teachers to teach and our students to learn. We value each individual child in our school and recognise that each has different talents and gifts, which we will nurture over the course of their school journey. We will help each student to develop, both personally and academically, so that they have the knowledge, skills and cultural capital to progress to an aspirational career, a fulfilling life and make a positive contribution to their local community.
From September 2022 the school moves to its permanent accommodation that covers the areas of Bowlee, Langley, Middleton and Heywood. Students will enjoy a state-of-the-art building, with excellent facilities and resources, boasting stunning views of the local countryside, yet with easy access to transportation links.
As part of the Edgar Wood Academy team, you would have the unique opportunity to shape and develop a curriculum which will capture students’ interests, provoke serious thinking and develop their intellectual curiosity. You will develop your own practice through our excellent professional development programmes and have access to high quality support and induction as you begin your journey with us. This post is suitable for ECTs as our team of experienced middle leaders have extensive experience in supporting Early Career Teachers through induction.
To work at Edgar Wood Academy, you must aspire to be an outstanding colleague, willing to share, learn and keep abreast of current research. Enjoy working as a team and thrive on the challenge of working and contributing to the successful establishment of a new school. Be someone who will help us to make a positive difference to the lives of young people in the borough. In return, we promise a supportive and enjoyable working environment, and the resources needed to carry out the role to the highest standards.
I am incredibly excited and privileged to be the Headteacher at Edgar Wood Academy and together, we will work hard to ensure that we deliver a world-class education to the students and community we are proud to serve.
