New Rickstones Academy is graded 'Good' (November 2023) and has a state of the art building offering fantastic facilities for both students and staff. Over the last 8 years the academy has seen a huge increase in student numbers, with the number of students on roll more than doubling.

Every member of staff is a vital part of our committed and ambitious team and we have been very successful at developing teachers and leaders with progression both within, and beyond the academy.

Our "Curriculum Drivers" run through all that we do as we encourage students to be safe, happy, the best they can be, and be proud.

Mastery: delivering excellent teaching & learning and developing excellent learners. Students are ambitious and committed.

Character: developing students into well rounded young people who we can be confident in to "do the right thing when no-one is looking".

Perspective: how our students fit into the world around them, how they appropriately challenge wrongs, and promote what is right. Students are open minded, compassionate and promote the differences found in all of us.

We are looking for someone inspirational, to provide professional vision and leadership for the Academy. You will drive and secure success, ensure high quality outcomes, and embed the highest of standards whilst also continually promoting a positive culture. The role would suit an already experienced Assistant Headteacher but we will also consider applications from middle leaders with significant experience and drive.
