About John Smeaton Academy

A unique opportunity to be part of the rapid transformation of a school, and its wider community.
John Smeaton Academy is a school on the move, and it certainly needs to be. In 2019 its performance data placed it as the lowest performing secondary school in the city of Leeds and one of the worst performing in the country. It is also fair to say that John Smeaton Academy is a school whose performance for many years has been unconvincing and this has resulted in its community losing its confidence in the school.
So why would anyone choose to apply for a role at John Smeaton Academy?
On 1 September 2021 John Smeaton Academy joined The GORSE Academies Trust, an organisation renowned for excellence in education. The trust has a nationally recognised track record of transforming inadequate schools and making them great again, or for the first time in their history. Consequently, this role represents an incredibly exciting opportunity for any candidate who is eager to be a part of an organisation that seeks to secure the very highest educational standard for every student. We are determined to ensure students at John Smeaton Academy are inspired to ‘Secure the Gift of Choice’ and we expect any successful candidate to be passionate and tenacious in their quest for all round academic and pastoral excellence.
The academy has already improved significantly as evidenced by parent/carer and student feedback alongside the day-to-day experience of the students. Students are now able to immerse themselves in The GORSE Academies Trust’s BIG 3: rowing, karate and volleyball, the trust’s debating programme and the trust’s Trinidad Legacy programme alongside the more traditional enrichment activities within the full range of the curriculum. Furthermore, teaching and learning are focused and the trust’s key strands, such as Positive Discipline and Purple Zone, are becoming more established and students are thriving as a result.
