What skills and experience we're looking for

Garden City Academy is part of the REAch2 family of Schools, and we are looking for an enthusiastic and innovative class teacher to join our collaborative and growing Academy team.

Our aim is to ensure that every member of the school community feels included, valued and respected, and that each person is treated fairly and well. We are a caring community school, whose values are built on mutual trust and respect for all. We have high expectations of all our pupils and support each child to realise their full potential and be the best they can be.

Like most REAch2 schools, Garden City Academy serves a socio-economically deprived area. This means that we have to work extra hard to provide the life chances that every child deserves. This is a task that we do not shy away from but embrace it! To aid us, and our staff, in fulfilling this aim, we have robust processes and procedures in place and train and support our teaching staff accordingly. Garden City Academy is truly a school where an individual can make a difference!

Are you:

  • an excellent practitioner, keen to work in a supportive school.
  • driven by a strong moral purpose to enable all children to achieve.
  • passionate about creativity and has an excellent sense of humour.
  • warm in character, easy to work with and committed to teamwork, recognising that more can be achieved together than is possible as individuals.
  • a professional who values wellbeing but unafraid of hard work.
  • calm and able to handle pressure and setbacks with a smile.
  • keen to be challenged to become the best you can be.
  • determined to succeed with a ‘find a way or make one!’ attitude.

If you answered yes to the above then you’d love to work at Garden City Academy.

What the school offers its staff

We can offer you:

  • A Leadership Team dedicated to helping you develop an outstanding career and balanced life.
  • A supportive school that will provide you with the tools that you need to succeed.
  • Exciting, leadership development and early promotion opportunities for the right candidates across the Trust.
  • The chance to work with a fantastic team, with the best possible opportunities to share ideas, planning, assessment etc.
  • Opportunity to work alongside outstanding teachers, to observe and share practice on a regular basis, developing pedagogy through reflectivity.
  • The chance to use / develop personal curriculum strength
  • An excellent CPD training programme.
  • A dynamic, creative staff, dedicated to achieving whole-school improvement and building lifelong friendships

The chance to make a real difference.
