What the school offers its staff

Trumpington Community College was built in 2015 on the south side of Cambridge, and the new school building provides a great environment for both working and learning. The school is growing and admitted 150 new pupils in Year 7 for the first time in September 2023. This growth will provide excellent future career progression opportunities. Following the Ofsted inspection in November 2023, Trumpington Community College is now a ‘Good’ school. Excitingly, two areas of the school were judged to be ‘Outstanding’ – Quality of Education, and Leadership and Management. “Pupils know that staff at the school have unashamedly high ambition for them. They appreciate the hard work teachers put into designing engaging and challenging lessons. Pupils respond by working hard.” “High-quality training supports teachers to deliver the curriculum’s aspirational aims.” “Staff are hugely proud to work in the school. They feel cared for, engaged with and valued.” One parent comment, reflective of many, was: “The statistics show the school is clearly achieving exceptional academic things with all its students. But it is that it manages this in a joyful, safe and loving way that I find so deeply impressive. I love going there and so do my children.” We are unashamedly ambitious for every child, no matter what their background, prior attainment or needs. We believe that ‘Knowledge Is Power’ – our most important purpose is to teach young people things they would not learn outside school which empower them. We also believe in ‘Education with Character’ – we want young people to look back on a schooling that has inspired and challenged them, given them wide opportunities and prepared them for the ups and downs of life. We have high expectations and standards, and we teach through explicit/direct instruction (using the Rosenshine Principles) and utilising TLAC 3.0 techniques. In this way, we achieve strong GCSE outcomes, excellent student conduct and a feeling of community throughout the College. We are part of a cluster of schools within the United Learning group: The Galfrid School, Coleridge Community College, Trumpington Community College, Parkside Community College, and Cambridge Academy for Science and Technology. We embrace United Learning aim to offer a life changing education to children and young people, and we work as a team to achieve more than any single school could. We share knowledge and resource within the cluster and the group to simplify work processes and manage workloads to achieve excellent results while improving work-life balance. As a cluster and as a group, we can look after our staff better. United Learning is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All positions are subject to an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring check from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) and shortlisted candidates will be subject to an online check.
