Head of Performing Arts job summary

King’s Lynn Academy is an 11-16 secondary based in the heart of King’s Lynn in West Norfolk and is one of the fastest improving schools anywhere; a school that is transforming its sense of self-belief and ambition for a community that has never before had the officially ‘good’ school it so deserves. Since February of 2017, the leadership team has worked tirelessly to ensure that our pupils receive the best possible quality of teaching, support, care, guidance and safeguarding.

At King's Lynn Academy we are lucky to have an energised, skilful and committed staff who all work together to continue to make our school better. Relationships between staff, pupils and families are very strong, and our phenomenally energetic pastoral team communicate with families very proactively and their dedication to the children in our care is total. Our staff are our greatest asset, and we take their workload and home-school balance extremely seriously. All teaching staff benefit from at least twice the nationally recommended amount of non-contact time, which is provided to allow teams to plan and resource collaboratively – to ease this further we have sourced externally-written curricula for all core subjects to further reduce the amount of preparation time for colleagues.

As part of Eastern Multi-Academy Trust there are opportunities to access training programmes and qualifications to prepare for middle or senior management over time and wider opportunities to access apprenticeship programmes. The estate is bright, clean and airy with ample free parking for staff. The Academy has strong links with the community and is expecting further growth in pupil numbers in the years to come.

Applications can be made via our website www.eastern-mat.co.uk/vacancies/
