Sheffield Springs Academy is a United Learning academy, rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted in May 2019.

Our whole-school ethos of ‘the best in everyone’ underpins our core values of ambition, confidence, creativity, respect, enthusiasm and determination. Our aim is to send every student out into the world instilled with these values, as well as the right knowledge, skills and qualifications, so that they are ready to play their part in it.

Improvements made in outcomes for students over the last three years are a testament to the relationships between our staff, pupils and their families, each one of them playing their part in in trying to ensure that every pupil achieves their potential.

We are looking for an energetic, inspirational, people-focused leader who believes that extraordinary success is possible.  As in any city with substantial wealth and a highly educated population, those who grow up in areas of lower wealth and less parental education can be in particular need of excellent role models, adults who believe in them and show them what they can do and be.  If you are a Principal or experienced Deputy who believes that children and young people can achieve extraordinary things and will build a team and a school to make it a reality, we will be excited to read your application.  The Academy is a great match for someone with the highest expectations, determination, resilience, audacity and compassion in equal measure. You will be a team builder, able to motivate staff and pupils.  You will expect a lot from people and provide strong support to them.
