What skills and experience we're looking for

The Orme Academy is seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and dedicated professional, with drive and ambition, to join us in a leadership position in Maths. The successful candidate will have a confident understanding of the curriculum and excellent subject knowledge and proven success as an effective leader. For this role you will be expected to teach maths through KS3 and KS4 and be able to demonstrate real enthusiasm for high quality teaching, curriculum design and development of staff. This is an excellent opportunity for a subject specialist, with experience in teaching at both Key Stages to embrace the opportunity that a leadership role brings.

The sole ethos for the school community is ‘Empowering Learners for Life’. Whilst we are committed to ensuring that every student makes excellent progress, this concept stretches well beyond academic performance. We firmly believe that every aspect of school should equip learners to be successful in all areas of their lives, both now and for their future. Indeed, every single decision or action taken improves the life chances of all our learners. This is underpinned by ensuring the Academy is a safe, nurturing and happy environment: put simply, The Orme Academy is a great place to learn and a great place to work.

This ethos applies equally to the staff. We believe in empowering our staff to be aspirational and effective leaders of learning and provide a good programme of CPD and induction to support those joining our vibrant community. This CPD includes being part of a large MAT, with its own Institute of Education (IoE) focused on the development of staff. The IoE provides access to wide range of network hubs, subject experts and access to best practice, as well as bespoke CPD opportunities. This is an exciting opportunity to join a highly professional and committed team of staff whilst also playing their part in the success and future development of our Academy.

The Orme Academy was named after Revd. Edward Orme (d. 1705), at one time master of the borough school, who left various lands in trust, the revenue to be applied to educating and apprenticing the children of Newcastle.

The sole ethos for the school community is ‘Empowering Learners for Life’. Whilst we are committed to ensuring that every student makes excellent progress, this concept stretches well beyond academic performance. We firmly believe that every aspect of school should equip learners to be successful in all areas of their lives, both now and for their future. Indeed, every single decision or action taken improves the life chances of all our learners. This is underpinned by ensuring the Academy is a safe, nurturing and happy environment: put simply, The Orme Academy is a great place to learn and a great place to work.

We have relentlessly high expectations of those associated with the Academy; we expect everyone to be their very best at all times. We have extremely high standards and aspirations for our staff and students which are reflected throughout the Academy and we expect all who are associated with the Academy to reflect these too. We are committed to working in partnership with parents and members of our local community to ensure the very best support and opportunities for our students so that they can fulfil their potential.

The Orme Academy is an increasingly popular first choice for education across the area. This reflects the significant improvements that are constantly being made within the Academy and the very strong reputation we are developing within the local and wider area.
