Be a good communicator and a strong team player and have a growth mindset
Have a willingness to contribute to the department and whole school projects, including the extra-curricular life of the Academy

Are a Rights Respecting Gold award school with a strong family ethos where individuals are respected and valued.
Are committed to continuous improvement and creative and innovative in our approach to all aspects of school life.
Offer a whole range of opportunities to further develop colleagues’ teaching skills and leadership potential.
Are well resourced and ICT rich.
