Firstly, thank you for your interest in becoming part of the Armfield Academy staff team. This is a very exciting and unique opportunity in helping establish our brand new school; developing policy and procedures and putting these into operation so that we become “an Academy to be proud of”.
We opened in September 2018 on Lytham Road, South Shore with children joining the school in Reception and Year 7 only. This will then be repeated in the following years which enables the school to grow. Our nursery provision opened in January 2019. The building programme has now been completed and staffing numbers will increase year on year until the school is at full capacity.
The Academy, named after Jimmy Armfield, has the strapline “an Academy to be proud of”. It therefore relates very much to traditional British values and supports the core values of our Trust; pride, ambition, respect, resilience, integrity and excellence.
Armfield Academy is part of the Fylde Coast Academy Trust (FCAT) and is our second “all-through” school. FCAT is a Multi Academy Trust with 9 primary and secondary schools across the Fylde Coast and Lancashire with a proven track record of delivering rapid improvement in progress and outcomes. Armfield is now our 10th school. Our aim is to ensure first class learning opportunities for all young people. Learners are at the heart of what we do and their outcomes and successes are what drive us to be the “best we can be”!
The Head of MFL is a key position and we are seeking to appoint an outstanding classroom practitioner ready to take on the responsibility of driving forward our MFL Department. Within your application you should state clearly why you are the ideal candidate for this role stating examples of where you have had significant impact on academic standards.
