We are a school focused on staff development through Instruction Coaching and the use of Deliberate Practice. We aim for Consistency, Clarity and Certainty in all we do. We are a value driven organisation and our values drive all our interactions in our school community.

In 2018 we joined the then recently formed Bishop Fraser Trust, a C of E multi academy trust, providing a great opportunity to work closely with the other outstanding schools in the MAT - St James’s C of E High School, Canon Slade School and more recently Bury C of E High School, sharing good practice and working collaboratively in the best interests of our students.

Our students deserve the very best- come and see what we are about- we constantly surprise and confound our visitors with the atmosphere we have in school. It really is a special place to be!

The schools of The Bishop Fraser Trust aim to offer:

§ A high quality, inclusive and distinctive education

§ A caring and nurturing environment based on our Christian values, recognising the uniqueness of each child.

We are looking to recruit a full time Teaching Head of Year on a permanent basis, starting ASAP.

The successful candidate will be:

§ be an acknowledged practitioner with a clear understanding of the characteristics of high-quality teaching and proven experience of teaching across the whole age and ability range

§ motivate both colleagues and students to work hard and try their best through passing on to them their infectious enthusiasm and passion for teaching!

§ actively share good practice and seek to explore ways to improve their own and others’ teaching

§ work hard to ensure all students make at least expected progress irrespective of their starting point and individual needs

§ understand that behaviour management starts with the quality of teaching in the classroom

§ demonstrate leadership qualities including personal resilience, drive and initiative and role model those personal qualities we wish to see in all our staff and instill in our young people

In return we can offer:

§ fantastic facilities

§ a supportive and encouraging staff team

§ a laptop to use whilst in employment

§ a rigorous and motivational weekly programme of continuous professional development and a pathway to middle and senior leadership opportunities across the schools in the MAT
