• Excellent professional development opportunities.
• A friendly and supportive learning environment with excellent student/staff relationships
• An exciting, modern state-of-the-art building with unrivalled facilities

West Lakes Academy was inspected in March 2017 and judged to be outstanding in all aspects. A key strength of this report was "Pupils currently in the school are making rapid and sustained progress across all subject areas. Outcomes in sciences...are particularly impressive."

We are looking for someone who can improve on that already outstanding performance.

We are a thriving, ambitious and forward thinking 11-18 academy situated on the edge of the beautiful Lake District. Our modern £26m building provides outstanding facilities, incorporating cutting edge technology which creates a bright and motivational learning environment. As a Teaching School and Multi Academy Trust we are building strong links with other schools in the local area and nationally. This role therefore provides significant career development opportunities as we continue to grow. We offer a comprehensive programme of individualised, evidence based CPD as well as encouraging colleagues to further their development through courses such as the National Professional Qualifications, a Masters degree, or supporting extra-curricular qualifications.

The academy’s Sponsors - Sellafield Limited, the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority and the University of Central Lancashire have each played an important role in its success and are committed to its continued improvement.
The academy has been heavily oversubscribed for the past 5 years, last year seeing 438 applications for 180 places. At the time of advertising we have 1236 students on roll.

We have an exciting opportunity for a committed and inspirational teacher to join a collaborative and experienced team with a passion for science. You will be supported by an exceptional team of technicians and will be prepared to work hard to ensure that every student makes exceptional progress.

We have science as a specialism and are equipped with nine, state-of-the-art teaching labs that have a full range of traditional science equipment and extensive 21st century ICT facilities to provide a truly outstanding learning environment.

For an informal discussion about this role or to arrange a visit, please contact, Barry Simpson Vice Principal on 01946 820356.
