What the school offers its staff

This is a significant opportunity for an ambitious candidate to help shape the future of one of the UK’s most successful Alternative Provision schools. The academy provides an alternative pathway for children who have failed in (and been failed by) mainstream education, operating with the spirit of a boxing gym. For any candidate, aligning with this vision and wanting to work to improve the life chances of vulnerable and disadvantaged students is vital.

The Boxing Academy converted in May 2017 to become an Alternative Provision Free School. Since then, it has delivered on its mission of delivering high quality education and development to the most hard-to-reach young people, realised through the discipline and ethos of boxing. The Academy has gained a local and national reputation for excellence by consistently achieving some of the best outcomes of any AP in the country.

In 2017, in recognition of these achievements, the Boxing Academy was named the Tes AP school of year. In March 2020, following its most recent OFSTED inspection, the school was graded ‘Outstanding’.

Commitment to safeguarding

The Boxing Academy is committed to the safeguarding and welfare of young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. Our commitment is underpinned by robust processes and procedures that seek to minimise risk and continuously promote a culture of safeguarding amongst our workforce. All posts within the school are subject to an enhanced DBS check.
