What skills and experience we're looking for

Could you inspire, challenge and motivate sixth form students? Could you support students to become effective independent learners?

Could you develop the Learning Resource Centre as a ‘Learning to Learn’ and a ‘Reading for Pleasure’ centre for all students? If so this could be the job for you.

We are seeking to appoint a Study Support Manager to support the work of our excellent teams in the Sixth Form and the English Department. This is a new role and has scope to develop further in the future.

The successful candidate will play a key role to provide high quality academic mentoring to post 16 students within the Academy and to monitor and evaluate its impact. Developing and implementing strategies which contribute towards effective learning, behaviour and achievement. This role will combine working to support students with the proactive development of the Learning Resource Centre (library) as a positive working environment as well as supporting the development of reading for all students. We require staff who are excited by this opportunity and who are ready to embrace this challenge, supporting us in delivering a great local school for our local community. For all of us, staff, Governors, children and parents, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to make a difference to students’ lives.

What the school offers its staff

The school has been rated as ‘Good’ by Ofsted, most recently in January 2023:

“Teachers adapt the curriculum and their teaching resources to meet the needs of all pupils effectively. They do this particularly well for pupils with SEND. The teaching resources are carefully designed and selected so that pupils can understand and remember more over time. Teachers routinely check pupils’ understanding. When pupils do not understand the work, teachers adapt their lessons and reteach.”

We operate on a very collaborative approach to school improvement working with a range of other schools and nationally recognised trainers. The school is very proud of the family ethos which pervades all aspects of its work, which is grounded in Christian values. The school has recently been awarded the Rights Respecting Schools Silver Award, demonstrating our commitment to embedding the principles of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child into our ethos and curriculum.
