What the school offers its staff

We are introducing A Level Psychology from September 2023 with a large cohort of students wishing to pursue this subject.

All staff have access to ongoing CPD, wellbeing support and other benefits associated with being linked to our Sponsor David Nieper. We offer a very strong and comprehensive NQT induction programme, followed by continuing support and development.

The Role

To provide highly effective teaching of A Level Psychology and Health and Social Care at Level 2 and 3 in both Key Stage 4 and the Sixth Form, contributing to the ongoing development of the Faculty and Sixth Form.

Due to the growth of our Sixth form we are introducing A level psychology from September 2023. We are looking for a well-qualified, skilled and enthusiastic teacher of Psychology to introduce and teach this subject to a very keen cohort of students.

Health and Social Care is taught across Key stage 4 and Key stage 5. We offer at Sixth Form a very successful National Level 3 Extended Certificate and at Key Stage 4 BTEC Level 1/2 Tech Award. A key aspect of our Level 3 provision is that all students take part in a one day a fortnight work placement/ employer engagement, allowing them to put into practice the work they have covered in lesson.

Our Academy is sponsored by the Christopher Nieper Education Trust (previously David Nieper Education Trust), together with local employer partners, who are highly committed in supporting the development and achievements of our students. With a clearly defined approach to teaching, applied learning and brand-new purpose-built facilities, which opened in February 2017, we believe that this is a truly exciting time to join the academy. We are a growing academy now of 780 students 11-18 and will soon be at our full capacity of 850 students 11-18. This role is a new post due to our growing pupil numbers. Our September 2022 Ofsted Inspection graded the academy as ‘Good in all areas’, a fantastic improvement from the ‘inadequate’ Ofsted rating when we took over the academy - and we endeavour to build on this as we grow and develop further. We are currently the only academy within the Trust however the Trust is likely to grow in the very near future with a number of other schools actively looking to join.
