Snowdon Village

Snowdon Village is the term used to describe a family of schools that sit within the Cabot Learning Federation. We currently have 4 schools namely, The Nest, Engage, Bristol Futures Academy and City School (2 small sites).

Our schools are alternative provisions and we provide education to students (ages 4 – 16) who have been excluded from mainstream schools or who have specific learning needs which mean they find it difficult to cope in a mainstream setting.

Snowdon Village is proud to be the first school in Bristol recognised and awarded with Trauma Informed and Mental Health School status. We are looking for an experienced leader who has a good understanding of trauma and adverse childhood experiences and is able to support our children whilst maintaining high expectations around academic outcomes.

Applicants should have good inter-personal skills and be able to build good relationships with students, staff and parents at pace.

We are passionate about ‘learning outside the classroom’ and seek to create an innovate curriculum that challenges the conventional way many schools are lead. We look forward to receiving applications from educators who share this vison and have fresh ideas about how to engage our students.

Your opportunity:

We can offer you the opportunity to advance your career within a supportive academy environment. We provide excellent training and development opportunities within the Federation, including a full induction programme for early career and experienced teachers. Training is both local and/or delivered through our excellent stand-alone training facility at the CLF Institute. For teachers, the CLF Institute aims to provide a continuum of development through each career stage from initial teacher training (ITT), for early career teachers (ECT), recently qualified teachers in their early career development, to successive stages of leadership through to Headship and beyond.
