What the school offers its staff

Now is a really exciting time to be joining Colne Primet Academy as we go through a period of rapid expansion, both in terms of staff and student numbers and with extensive new building and refurbishment work due to be completed in September 2024.

We currently have 875 students on roll from a diverse range of backgrounds, and the students numbers continue to grow up to our full capacity of 1050 over the next few years. Throughout the school, we have students who speak 23 different languages. Working with such a diverse community brings lots of opportunities for students to learn more about each other and themselves.

By joining the Primet family you will become part of a supportive and ambitious team. The core drive of being part of the Primet staff team is about wanting the best for our students, and to help them overcome any barriers to their success. Our aim here at Colne Primet Academy is to give each and every child the very best educational start in life. At all times, we guide, support and inspire.

We collaborate with our colleagues at West Craven High School as well as the three primary academies in our Trust family and have the support of the Pendle Education Trust core team for functions such as Finance, Facilities, Human Resources, Health and Safety, IT, Marketing and Governance.
