What skills and experience we're looking for

The Orme Academy is seeking to appoint an inspirational and innovative leader of our Computing and Business department. The successful candidate will have an absolute commitment to raising standards of achievement, developing strong progression in students’ learning and a desire to support the young people in all areas of their education. We offer a range of curriculum pathways for the students and our new Head of Department would have the scope to develop this further. We welcome applicants that have the ability to teach Computing and/or Business across KS3 and KS4. The sole ethos for the school community is ‘Empowering Learners for Life’. Whilst we are committed to ensuring that every student makes excellent progress, this concept stretches well beyond academic performance. We firmly believe that every aspect of school should equip learners to be successful in all areas of their lives, both now and for their future. Indeed, every single decision or action taken improves the life chances of all our learners. This is underpinned by ensuring the Academy is a safe, nurturing and happy environment: put simply, The Orme Academy is a great place to learn and a great place to work.

We believe in empowering our staff to be aspirational and effective leaders of learning and provide a good programme of CPD and induction to support those joining our vibrant community. This CPD includes being part of a large MAT, with its own Institute of Education (IoE) focused on the development of staff. The IoE provides access to wide range of network hubs, subject experts and access to best practice, as well as bespoke CPD opportunities. This is an exciting opportunity to join a highly professional and committed team of staff whilst also playing their part in the success and future development.

The Orme Academy was named after Revd. Edward Orme (d. 1705), at one time master of the borough school, who left various lands in trust, the revenue to be applied to educating and apprenticing the children of Newcastle.

The sole ethos for the school community is ‘Empowering Learners for Life’. Whilst we are committed to ensuring that every student makes excellent progress, this concept stretches well beyond academic performance. We firmly believe that every aspect of school should equip learners to be successful in all areas of their lives, both now and for their future. Indeed, every single decision or action taken improves the life chances of all our learners. This is underpinned by ensuring the Academy is a safe, nurturing and happy environment: put simply, The Orme Academy is a great place to learn and a great place to work.

We have relentlessly high expectations of those associated with the Academy; we expect everyone to be their very best at all times. We have extremely high standards and aspirations for our staff and students which are reflected throughout the Academy and we expect all who are associated with the Academy to reflect these too. We are committed to working in partnership with parents and members of our local community to ensure the very best support and opportunities for our students so that they can fulfil their potential.

The Orme Academy is an increasingly popular first choice for education across the area. This reflects the significant improvements that are constantly being made within the Academy and the very strong reputation we are developing within the local and wider area.
