Thank you for taking the time to find out more about this opportunity to work with us at the South Bank University
Academy. This recruitment pack gives you information about the role and the school, which will help you in completing an application.
South Bank University Academy has recently been judged as ‘Good’ in its 2022 Ofsted Inspection. Ofsted inspectors said that “Pupils are safe and well cared for. They enjoy coming to school and like the strong sense of community. Pupils understand the school values of social justice, endeavour, kindness and know why these are important.” Our
teachers build strong relationships with every student, they nurture their personal growth and, through carefully designed experiences, support them to: become the change makers in their world; live a good life; and improve the lives of others.

Everything we do is true to our values of social justice, endeavour, kindness and empathy, and community. Our vision and these values are bold and distinctive. They are about much more than examination results and they are tangible to all those who visit and work here. We are determined to achieve this vision and we expect our staff to
embody these values every day in their interactions with students and in contributing to the wider school community.
We have thought hard about what we need to teach and how we need to teach it. Through our curriculum, students explore a rich body of knowledge across a broad range of subjects. We supplement this with an extensive enrichment curriculum of contextualised projects, educational visits, lectures, community work and a range of additional clubs and societies.

We invest heavily in ensuring that teachers can teach without disruption. Therefore, walking around the school you
will see lessons happening in calm and purposeful learning environments.
We recognise that each subject has a unique pedagogical approach which is closely tied to the curriculum that is created for students. Therefore, we never prescribe particular methods of teaching. We are a learning organisation and so regularly reflect on our practice through structured training sessions as well as our Professional Learning Community where you will direct your own development
