What the school offers its staff

Kearsley Academy has undergone a fantastic transformation over the last four years; strong and stable leadership from the Trust as well as a committed senior leadership team and amazing teaching and support staff has resulted in an Academy that has moved from being a poor performer to one of the best performers both in the local authority and nationally in respect of progress made by students attending the academy.

Our team is well supported with consistent classroom structures and polices in place, and with a dedicated non-teaching inclusion team on site offering a high level of pastoral care, which allows our department leaders to lead and teach. All staff at Kearsley are encouraged to be involved with the life of the school and our students told our recent OFSTED inspectors that they felt safe at school and were proud to attend Kearsley.

As the Trust continues to expand, the opportunities for career development are strong, and many of our teachers and leaders have moved on to become leaders or subject directors over recent years.
