What skills and experience we're looking for

Knowing Every Child - We understand that positive relationships between young people and adults reinforce a culture of excellent behaviour and a commitment to learning. We structure our school so that every pupil knows, and is known by, a key group of adults which include their Head of Year and Form Tutor.

High Expectations - We believe that, with the right support, every child can achieve their full potential. Our teachers recognise the individual potential of each of their pupils and challenge and support them to be the best they can be.

Excellent Teaching and Learning - We prioritise learning and development, making sure our teachers have access to high quality career development opportunities at every stage of their career. This ensures that our approach is always informed by the latest research.

Building Character - Our aim is to nurture a generation of game changers with the skills to succeed in life. Pupils participate in enrichment and co-curricular activities which challenge, stretch and inspire them, and which help them to develop positive character strengths such as creativity, resilience, confidence and empathy.

Exemplary Behaviour - We are committed to establishing a calm, orderly and energised environment in our school so that our teachers can focus on teaching and our pupils can focus on learning.

Prepared for the Next Steps - We encourage each pupil to explore their individual interests and talents as they design their own career pathways. Our staff encourage every pupil to have high expectations and support them to make informed decisions about their future as they prepare to move beyond school.

About the School
Brannel School offers 950 places to students aged 11-16. We are situated in the heart of rural Cornwall, approximately 10 miles between Newquay on the north coast and beautiful St Austell Bay on the south coast. Our facilities are second to none – the school was completely redesigned and rebuilt in 2011 as a ‘School of the Future’ at a cost of over £17m.
We aim to be a truly outstanding school, delivering the very best educational opportunities, nurturing academic excellence, and fostering ambition in every one of our students.

Student Support: Our Ethos
At Brannel, we aim to create a tolerant, inclusive community. We adopt a policy of positive behaviour management, which encourages young people to take responsibility for their own actions and to consider their impact on others. Students are encouraged to develop strategies to enable them to behave appropriately and to respond in socially acceptable ways. We believe that students respond best to a calm atmosphere with clear and consistent messages, and that praise and reward and the celebration of success create an environment of mutual support and respect.
