What skills and experience we're looking for

Our fundamental belief is that every student has potential, gifts, and talents. It is our job, no matter what role we have in school, to provide the opportunities, challenge, guidance, and support that enables them to truly flourish. We have high expectations of our students who we expect to work hard, live our values and fully engage in school life every day.

  • Are you an inspirational teacher and/or leader with the ability to inspire young people and colleagues alike?

  • Do you share our philosophy of high aspiration and expectations for all students?

  • Are you someone who believes that by fostering positive and collaborative relationships between students, families and school, there are no barriers to learning that cannot be overcome?

What the school offers its staff

Sackville is a vibrant school, with supportive families, colleagues and students who behave well and are a genuine delight to be around. This is a harmonious and happy place to work, with colleagues who want the very best for our students and work hard to achieve it. Our motto of 'Together We Achieve' very much resonates throughout the school.

Our academic standards are high, and our students make good progress with Progress 8 consistently being above average. We regularly have students achieve places at Oxbridge, with many more going on to Russell Group and other universities. However, as a truly inclusive and comprehensive school, we are equally proud of the students who successfully move on to apprenticeships, and into employment or training to meet their personal ambitions.

Pastoral care and the support we give students to achieve in life and in learning is of equal importance to us. We believe that every member of our team has a part to play in this and is central to the success of our new smaller Communities system, putting student engagement, wellbeing and success at the heart of all that we do and aspire to.

We believe in offering a broad and balanced curriculum in which trips, visits, clubs, charity work and competitions play a vital part. Our ambition is for our students to leave us with the best grades possible to support the next step of their journey, but we will only have fully achieved our vision if they also leave as well rounded, confident and curious young adults who believe in themselves, that anything is possible and go on to achieve great things in their future.

We offer a wide variety of extra-curricular provision. Art, drama, music, sport and debating are all very strong at Sackville and we are very proud of the level of success that has been achieved in these valuable curriculum areas, as well as the opportunities given to provide inclusive and enriching activities for all.
