About Farnborough Academy
The Farnborough Academy is an exciting place to be. The academy opened in September 2014 and officially became part of the Spencer Academies Trust in October 2018. This has enabled the academy to access tailored support to ensure improvement. We are very proud of our rapid improvement and we are developing an academy that the pupils can be very proud of.
Starting September 2021
We are seeking to appoint an inspiring and dedicated teacher of Science who has the ability to motivate students to achieve their full potential. The Science faculty is in the midst of rapid development. We have improved the quality of teaching, learning and outcomes hugely over the last couple of years. We are committed to continuing on this trajectory to ensure our students receive the highest quality of education possible and we are looking for someone to contribute, support and embody this vision with us. The ideal candidate will be joining a successful, friendly and well-resourced faculty, who work collaboratively to contribute to excellent teaching and learning.
The successful candidate will be an excellent, dynamic teacher with a passion for science. They will be reflective about teaching and learning to provide the best opportunity to challenge and support each and every student.
To succeed in this role you will be open to sharing good practice so that the Science team can work to our strengths, support one another’s development and provide high quality lessons while contributing to the advancement of the science team as a whole. You will be creative as well as inspirational and committed to your own professional development. Most of all you will love learning and want to recreate this in young people.
We are a friendly, successful and ambitious school where:
• standards are consistently high
• students and staff enjoy learning in a disciplined environment
• good behaviour and respect is the norm
• a culture of excellence and innovation prevails
• change is embraced for continuous improvement
• CPD is regular, relevant and based in evidence-based practice
Spencer Academies Trust is an educational charity, Multi-Academy Trust and Sponsor of Academies. We have approaching 16000 children and young people in our academies and employ more than 2200 teachers, leaders and educational support professionals across the East Midlands. We aspire to be a leading regional high performing Trust, with a national reputation for excellence.
We currently have 15 primary academies, 8 secondary academies and one primary aged special school in our family of schools. All of our schools benefit from the collaboration and added value that being a member of our Trust offers, and share our values and beliefs. Spencer Trust academies share an ambition to deliver results that compete with the very highest performing schools in the country, and deliver a curriculum for students that is underpinned by breadth, opportunity and quality: one that seeks to give young people the opportunity to develop into well rounded global citizens that believe they can influence positive change in the world.
Our Mission is to deliver the best possible outcomes for children and young people.
Spencer Academies Trust is an exceptional Trust, providing an outstanding education for local children.
• All children have a right to a quality education regardless of background or ability, and have an entitlement to the opportunity of a secure progression route in their learning and development.
• Schools are stronger when they work in collaboration with each other, operate within a ‘family’ and are open to a true sense of partnership.
• We grow the effectiveness and sustainability of our schools by developing the people within them, and that through shared and equitable responsibility for quality and outcomes; we achieve more.
