Northern Education Trust is a not-for-profit education charity, operating within the North East and North West of England, and works with schools by invitation only. It was formed in 2012 and currently sponsors 22 Academies – 10 primary and 12 secondary – making it one of the largest Multi Academy Trusts in the North of England. All of the Trust’s primary schools are rated either Good or Outstanding by Ofsted, as are all the Trust’s secondary schools which have been inspected whilst sponsored by NET.

We constantly focus on standards as we understand outcomes are paramount. Our decision making is driven entirely by what is best for children. By doing this we enhance the life chances of the children and young people in our care.

This is an exciting opportunity for an exceptional leader to work closely with the Senior Leadership Team to help shape the continuous improvements required to ensure all our pupils have an outstanding educational experience.

Thorp Academy is one of the top performing secondary schools in the North East of England. Judged “good” in its most recent Ofsted in 2019, you will work alongside SLT to ensure effective leadership is in place to continue improving outcomes at Thorp. We are looking for a hard working, dedicated and can-do leader, who understands and supports our vision.

The appointed candidate will be an outstanding classroom practitioner. You must have passion, drive and commitment to continue the outstanding work already achieved, working in collaboration with the Northern Education Trust family.

What the school offers its staff

  • A family of Academies within the trust and a set of values we all share
  • Support for your professional development and the opportunity to continue to develop your leadership skills in a well-resourced academy environment
  • A real opportunity to work in partnership with the trust to move academies to good or better within three years.
  • Good relationships and loyalty with pupils, parents, carers and the wider community.
