About Corby Business Academy;
Corby Business Academy is a school committed to providing the very best for the community it serves. We have already undergone significant change in recent years under new leadership and our goals for further development remain ambitious. We work relentlessly in providing a high quality broad and balanced curriculum with stimulating learning experiences for all our students. This is underpinned by our strong sense of common purpose that is palpable in the Academy’s day to day operation. We aim to actively encourage students to participate in all areas of academy life, motivating and inspiring them to unlock their potential and realise their ambitions. Our staff have an uncompromising commitment to this and work closely with one another to support and develop students as well as one another.
In April 2023 the Academy was judged to be GOOD in all areas by OFSTED, who highlighted that:
“Leaders have brought about significant improvement at this school. They focus on providing an ambitious curriculum for all pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND)”
“Leaders have raised their expectations of pupils’ behaviour and conduct, which is having a positive impact. Pupils behave very well in lessons. During lesson changeover times and at breaktimes, the school is calm and orderly”
“Parents and carers are positive about the education their children receive. One view shared by many was, ‘My child has thrived, been supported, encouraged, cared for and listened to at this school.”
Due to the need to grow our Art & Photography provision, we are now seeking to appoint an enthusiastic, inspirational, and highly motivated Teacher of Art and Photography. This is an exciting opportunity for a committed and motivated professional and would be suitable for someone who wants to make a valued and important contribution to our community.
There is a distinct commitment to ensure students have creative options throughout their time with us, the ambition is further growth of a Faculty that has many strands of Artistic pathways for our students; this includes outstanding provision at all Key Stages.
