What skills and experience we're looking for

Who are we looking for?

  • An excellent classroom practitioner
  • Excellent subject knowledge
  • Good organisational and motivational skills to support pupils of all abilities and needs.
  • Inclusive.

Our mantra ‘High Expectations Lead to High Achievers’ applies to everyone who is involved in the academy, whatever their role and we place a high emphasis on staff well-being.

What the school offers its staff

What can we offer?

  • Very visible and approachable senior leadership team.
  • Real opportunities for career progression – our culture is very much to ‘promote from within’.
  • One day a year ‘off timetable’ provided in the summer term for subject teachers who mark for exam boards.
  • Collaborative planning across the Trust with departments in different academies able to share resources and moderation linked by Microsoft Teams.
  • A lesson visit schedule that is published one year in advance.
  • A performance management process that is focused on three targets only: Subject knowledge, teaching and learning and either a departmental or whole school responsibility target regardless of your level of responsibility.
  • Very flexible child-care arrangements - we are a very family-friendly academy and understand how hard it can be to juggle family life and work at times.
  • Meetings for subject teachers only twice each half term.
  • Reporting to parents only three times a year and no requirement for written comments. No formally graded lesson observations – the emphasis is on coaching and sharing practice.
