Job description

We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic qualified teacher of Maths to work within a dedicated, motivated and inspirational team of teachers within our Maths department from September 2020.

The Academy has a great history of success and a bright and exciting future and we are looking for an ambitious and dynamic teacher to support the department through the next stage of its journey. Please download our recruitment pack for more information about the role, the department and instructions on how to apply.

This is an excellent opportunity and comes at an exciting time for the Academy. From September 2020 we are expanding our curriculum offer and, combined with an additional intake of Year 7 students, this enables us to create more opportunities across the Academy.

Thomas Deacon Academy will be holding a Recruitment event on Wednesday 25th March 2020 from 2pm – 6pm. You will have an opportunity to look around the Academy and speak to staff about life at TDA. If you would like to attend, please email lucia.hawes@tda.education to arrange a time to visit.

The Thomas Deacon Academy that we know today opened in 2007 as one of the UK’s first and largest academies. Whilst a building does not make a school, it is worth noting that Thomas Deacon Academy was designed by Norman Foster and Partners and in addition to our impressive main academy our beautiful 43-acre campus includes TDA Juniors - a modern, light and purpose-built Key Stage 2 facility - and expansive playing fields and sporting facilities.

Moving forward, our vision for the academy is a simple one: we want every member of our learning community to be the very best that they can be and achieve their full potential.

The academy’s core values of Trust, Discipline and Aspiration define who we are as a community and how we learn together. We believe that every member of our learning community should have the highest expectations and standards, showing trust and discipline in all that we do.

In September 2018, a new extension to the existing main building led to new accommodation being created for a sixth form study centre, refectory expansion and staff professional learning centre.

In September 2019, TDA received a very positive Ofsted report, judging the academy to be Good overall. Ofsted commented favourably, amongst other things, on the overall leadership of the academy, good teaching, positive relationships between staff and students and students’ behaviour. These aspects of the academy have been maintained alongside the identified areas for development being addressed.

Thomas Deacon Education Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The Academy will require the successful candidate to provide satisfactory references and undertake an Enhanced Check with the Disclosure and Barring Service.

Please note the Academy may hold interviews prior to the closing date, and this job may be withdrawn at any point during the advertised dates.
