Mounts Bay Academy is the hub for the central team of the Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) with 1008 students aged 11-16 years. The Mounts Bay school converted to Academy status in 2011 and a year later was awarded an outstanding grade in a full Ofsted Inspection. This allowed the organisation to apply to become a Teaching School called ‘Applied Minds’, which has provided innovative CPD and ITT to schools across Cornwall. As part of this brief, the Academy is a hub for the Challenge Partners’ network.
The Academy has also successfully made bids to improve facilities over the last 5 years and there are now new changing rooms and Science laboratories, a new sports hall and an artificial sports pitch. In November 2017 the Academy was inspected by Ofsted to review its safeguarding arrangements and the HMI visitors noted that the Academy had a fully inclusive culture and provided excellent support for vulnerable students.
Mounts Bay Academy is an Apple Distinguished school and each student and staff member is provided with a mobile device to support learning. We believe that students should be prepared for the world in which they will live when they leave the Academy and strive daily to ensure that we update our knowledge accordingly.
This is an exciting time, with a new OFSTED framework, where we will be refocusing the leadership and developing our vision for World Class Education for Global Leaders.
We are looking for a professional with a spirit of adventure who understands that high academic standards and exciting learning can combine to change young people’s lives. I look forward to receiving your application for this important post. Mounts Bay Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people and we expect the candidate to share this commitment.
