About Wreake Valley Academy

This is an exciting time for The Bradgate Secondary’s. With the two schools working increasingly closer together, our recruitment is being done jointly.

Staff will usually be appointed to be based at one site but will be offered opportunities to experience teaching across both schools if this fits with their own aspirations and ambition.

The Roundhill Academy is a hive of high-quality teaching & learning. It has been oversubscribed for the last few years but is aiming to limit its intake to 150 students every year with class sizes limited to 25 students. The Roundhill Academy and Wreake Valley Academy both feed into The Bradgate Sixth Form, and teachers joining Roundhill but wanting to gain experience teaching A level or post 16 qualifications can be offered that opportunity at Bradgate 6th which is based on The Wreake Valley campus (1 mile away).

Wreake Valley is a thriving and vibrant school. It has excellent facilities and is growing rapidly as it becomes known for high quality teaching and outstanding provision for the 200+ students who join every year. Like Roundhill there is an emphasis on aiming to keep classes capped at around 25 students but also a commitment to offering the broadest possible key stage 3 and with GCSE options that students can select on a completely open basis, so that they can genuinely follow their passion throughout their education.
If you are looking to join a genuinely passionate and student-centred educational community then you should take a look at either one of our schools.
We run three 100-minute lessons per day, we prioritise department based CPD within dedicated time (during the school day) and leaders are visible, proactive and grounded in a common sense approach.
