Further details about the role

Please note that new guidance in Keeping Children Safe in Education 2022 requires us to carry out an online search as part of our due diligence on shortlisted candidates.

Manchester Enterprise Academy (MEA) opened in 2009 and is proud to be part of the Prospere Learning Trust.

Our campus now has two teaching buildings, which incorporate a Theatre, Art, Fashion and Dance studios and new Science laboratories. There is also a new £1million multi-sport facility which includes a full-size 3G rugby and football pitch and other redeveloped sports facilities. We also have a new cafe and dining facilities, two Food Technology rooms and recently refurbished ICT, Business and Modern Foreign Language classrooms.

In order to deliver our vision of a fantastic future for all our students, it is important that they achieve the best academic results possible. Our vision of a “Fantastic Future for All Our Students” is easy to understand, but complex to achieve, as the future evolves so rapidly around us. Students have to adapt in order to build themselves a secure and resilient future. We focus relentlessly on the MEA Way, of Safe, Respectful and Ready. The business partners who lead the Trust help us to complement academic achievement with the other skills that employers demand of their staff. Enterprising, entrepreneurial and networking skills, team working, presenting information and project management are all part of our Fantastic Futures curriculum and, allied to our Pastoral Pledges and aligned to our outstanding Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) provision.

We work incredibly hard to attract the best teachers and our teacher training provision is graded outstanding by Manchester University. We believe that our teachers’ expertise needs to inspire our students by allowing them to shape and craft exciting learning experiences. Our teaching model emphasises excellent classroom dynamics between staff and students. Exams are a serious business, learning is an emotional journey – students who enjoy learning perform far better than those who are uninspired.

Beyond the classroom, as well as having a range of sports teams and experiences, we expect our students to take part in at least two enrichment activities per week. We offer break and after school clubs linked to our curriculum area and there is something for everyone on each day. We also open from 7.45 for Breakfast Club offering a longer school day and flexibility for all families.
