What skills and experience we're looking for

St James Academy is looking to appoint a dynamic and inspirational Curriculum Team Leader for English.


What the school offers its staff

This is an exciting time to join St James Academy and Dudley Academies Trust. For the third consecutive year, the school is oversubscribed and this year, the school achieved its best ever examination results. Not only did outcomes exceed those in 2019 but St James also did better than 2022, bucking the national trend.

Dudley Academies Trust was formed in September 2017 under the sponsorship of Dudley College of Technology. Our Trust schools are St James Academy, The Link Academy, Pegasus Academy, Beacon Hill Academy, Blowers Green and Kate’s Hill Primary. The Trust when combined with the sponsor, annually supports 8,500 young people aged 4 to 19 years old and employs almost 1,300 staff.

As a Trust we are highly centralised, which means that all of our systems and processes are aligned. Everything we do is developed collaboratively involving many professionals and experts who work together across the Trust, all striving to provide the highest quality provision for our learners.

Teaching and Learning is supported by a central team of Subject Directors who are experienced teachers with leadership and mentoring skills who work across our academies supporting teachers in their personal development, data analysis and curriculum planning. Subject Directors have specific areas of focus such as Mathematics, Science, Reading, Writing and History.

Closing date – Sunday 25th February 2024 - we reserve the right to close this vacancy earlier than the date advertised.
