Thank you for your interest in working for Steel City Schools Partnership. As a Multi-Academy Trust with a very clear vision and ambition, Trustees are keen to ensure they recruit and retain the highest calibre of candidates to be part of Steel City Schools Partnership to provide the very best education possible to the children we serve.

Steel City Schools Partnership was formed on April 1st 2013 following a long established partnership between three local schools – Fox Hill Primary, Mansel Primary and Monteney Primary, a National Support School. Following a period of improvement, SCSP welcomed two new schools to the Trust – Greenhill Primary and Windmill Hill Primary – both on February 1st 2018. Woodseats Primary joined SCSP on September 1st 2019, Brook House Junior on April 1st 2021 and Lound Infant and Lound Junior joined on September 1st 2021. The Trust is delighted to be working with Sheffield Local Authority and with more schools who are considering joining SCSP.

The Multi-Academy Trust has been established to ensure a Sheffield, primary-led partnership of schools with an ambition to work closely with other academies and schools in both formal and informal arrangements. The Trust aims to provide a high quality learning environment that inspires and motivates children, staff and the wider community to engage in education and learning. The “To provide an excellent education for all” philosophy drives policy, practice and governance in order to achieve this. Leadership development, succession planning and capacity building are also priorities for the Trust.

As a Multi Academy Trust we work closely and value greatly our relationship with a number of local and regional partners, being a Strategic Partner with the regional Teaching School Hubs. SCSP has been very successful with our CPD programme and outreach work, leading training for a range of educational and leadership programmes. We have lead staff who are subject experts at all levels of the current National Professional Qualifications. Our CEO is a National Leader of Educations and an Ofsted Inspector.
