The Brooksbank School is a large, popular and successful comprehensive school and specialist Sports College. It is an oversubscribed 11 to 18 co-educational school with over 1800 students on role. The Brooksbank School was judged as a GOOD school by OFSTED in 2016. We continue to be a forward thinking and outward facing school and are recognised for the excellent practice being undertaken. The school is currently undergoing change under new headship and so this opportunity affords the successful candidate to significantly contribute to the strategies and policies of the school moving forward, whilst having specific responsibility for the behaviour and welfare of students and the impact this has on their education, success and outcomes. The successful applicant will join a strong and committed leadership team and will also be able to support change and improvement in the school over the coming years.

Our success with regard to our exam results improved last year and student outcomes, reflecting the hard work of both the students and staff alike were some of the best for several years. This gave everyone (students and staff alike) an immense pride in what we, the Brooksbank family have managed to achieve together.

We are looking for someone who:

• Is a talented and effective classroom practitioner.
• Has relevant experience in secondary schools.
• Has very good ICT and data management skills.
• Has vision, flair and creativity as well as the energy and determination to bring
about change.
• Is a strong team player and works effectively with young people, colleagues and the wider community.
• Has the energy, stamina and commitment to make a difference and create the best possible educational opportunities for the young people at Brooksbank School.
• Is likely to be an existing successful teacher with significant skills, knowledge and experience of delivering high quality lessons.

About The Brooksbank School

Welcome from the Headteacher

Dear Applicant,

Many thanks for your interest in the vacancy here at The Brooksbank School. This information pack will provide you with the basic detail of the role for which you are considering applying and I would urge you to undertake greater research into the school and its community to make sure that this is a role in which you can make a significant, positive impact on the lives of our students’.

My belief is that teaching, and learning is the foundation on which school improvement is made. Experiences have shown me that standards and outcomes will not improve sufficiently unless student learning is consistently stretched, underpinned by effective 'Good' or better daily teaching. It is my responsibility to provide students with a curriculum that not only engages them but offers them the opportunity to maximise their potential achievement or outcomes through an inspirational teaching and learning environment that allows individuals to maximise their own social, emotional, academic, and moral development.

In terms of moving the school forward, there is also a fundamental need for the school to work with its parents / local community and secure a joint vision for the students. The truly inclusive ethos that I firmly believe in, and we have here at Brooksbank School, can only happen if the partnership between school and its community exists.

All the staff at Brooksbank School are passionate about the potential offered by school and the positive impact on the lives of our young people. We have an outstanding commitment to success, underpinned by strong moral values and unremittingly high expectations.

Vision Statement

Our aim at Brooksbank is to provide an outstanding educational experience for every one of our students. We take a holistic approach towards developing talented and personable young people, so that they will go on to live happy and successful lives, contribute positively to society and forge rewarding and successful careers.
