We are passionate about giving pupils the very best start in life with a firm belief that aspirational teaching transforms lives.

Dashwood Academy is part of Aspirations Academies who sponsor primary and secondary academies located within three geographical regions, or districts: West London, South Coast (Bournemouth, Poole and Dorset) and Banbury (Oxfordshire).

  • Makes lessons exciting, interesting and fun
  • Listens to them and looks after them

If you:

  • Have a passion for teaching and learning and want to inspire future generations
  • Have high expectations and a commitment to ensuring all children succeed
  • Wish to work in a happy, friendly school with a positive attitude
  • Can make learning exciting, motivating and fun
  • Work well in a team to support and learn from others
  • Are able to bring energy and enthusiasm to the role

  • Happy, well-motivated and engaged children, who are keen to learn
  • An experienced, hardworking and supportive team
  • Pupils with excellent attitudes to learning and outstanding behaviour
  • Wide opportunities and specialist training for professional development within our Trust, including opportunities to do NPQs in variety of areas.
  • A proactive approach to staff well-being, work-life balance and care for each person as an individual
