What skills and experience we're looking for

‘Greatness is not a function of circumstance. Greatness, it turns out, is largely a matter of conscious choice.’

Jim Collins

Thank you for your interest in The Dukeries Academy (TDA) and Academy Transformation Trust (ATT). Our Academy was judged good by Ofsted in October 2021, and we are now committed to achieving greatness by 2025. The opening line of the report highlights our culture, ‘As pupils enter the school, they are reminded of its inclusive culture by crossing the Rainbow Road. The staff know the pupils very well and have their best interests at heart. Pupils say that they are excited to attend this school and feel safe.’

Our vision at The Dukeries Academy to transform lives by inspiring excellence and maximising opportunities for all. As a rapidly improving Academy, at the heart of the Ollerton community, we support every student to achieve the qualifications they need to progress confidently to the next stage of learning, training or employment. This is not all we do. To complement their qualifications, we also develop the skills and character traits, which will allow our students to become positive change makers in their own and other people’s lives.

At the Dukeries Academy, we live our values. We aspire to act with integrity, are ambitious in our purpose and are resilient in our pursuit of excellence. We are a Disability Confident Employer, at ATT we are passionate about Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and welcome all applications.
