Job summary

Vision & Aims - The de Ferrers Trust

The de Ferrers Trust is a Multi Academy Trust comprising three Secondary Academies and four Primary Academies, currently based in Staffordshire and Derbyshire.

Our vision is to ensure the children and young people in our care have the opportunity to fulfil their potential through achieving highly, regardless of their ability or background. We aim to achieve this vision through:

- Delivering a high-quality education
- Recruiting, developing and retaining high-calibre members of staff
- Establishing and developing robust governance
- Ensuring financial probity and viability
- Developing a highly efficient trust infrastructure and central services
- Establishing effective systems to support the sustainable growth of the Trust

About Our School

We benefit from a strong local reputation which is the reason we have increased our admission number to 410. Our expansion has been facilitated by the acquisition of a third site for our popular Sixth Form in the town centre. This has led to a re-organisation of our students, with Year 7 and Year 8 educated at the Dove Campus and Years 9-11 at the Trent Campus, which are half a mile apart.

We were delighted by our January 2017 Ofsted inspection which emphasised the outstanding aspects of our work, including high levels of progress and attainment. We value our staff team, and this is reflected in the wide range of professional development opportunities which are offered both internally and externally. In recent years, we have developed an international reputation for learning technologies, becoming both an Apple Distinguished School and Regional Training Centre; we provide a 1-to-1 iPad programme for all students in Year 9-Year 13.

The Department

The Faculty has a strong tradition of excellence and innovation within all areas of Design & Technology. The compulsory programme of study that is offered to Key Stage 3 students is innovative and dynamic. Students at Key Stage 4 are offered a wide range of GCSE subjects to choose from and at Key Stage 5 we offer Design and Technology: Product Design and Design and Technology: Fashion and Textiles. There are eight members of staff teaching Design and Technology and two full-time and two part-time Technicians for the faculty.
