• Committed to teacher development through E-ACT’s professional learning program in partnership with leading training providers such as Ambition School Leadership.

• Leading the way in youth mental health through our very own Mental Health First Aid programme - we aim to train every teacher as a mental health first aider.

Our academies can collaborate and share ideas with one another in ways that schools may not be able to.

We are always on the lookout for dynamic, motivated and enthusiastic people so we can continue to give every one of our pupils the opportunity to explore, solve, create and achieve.

In return we offer the chance to work with amazing people and inspirational pupils, as well as a great salary and sector -leading work -life balance arrangements.
