Job summary

We are a school in special measures. There, we’ve said it.
If this has put you off, then we wish you well in your search.
If not, read on.

Our school is on a journey and we have come a long way in a short space of time and now need teachers to take us to the next level. We are not after superlatives – the ‘best’ teacher, the most experienced, the strictest practitioner – but rather those with a moral purpose that aligns with ours. We are here to make a difference, break down barriers and raise aspirations. Yes we are taking a school out of special measures, but we are also transforming a community and creating an enduring legacy.

We are looking for the right people in a variety of roles. We have teaching positions in different phases and for the right candidate, there may be additional responsibilities, TLRs and leadership opportunities. Unfortunately, we are not able to appoint NQTs at this moment in time.

If this sounds like a project for you then let’s have a chat on the phone or come and visit our delightful school. I guarantee you will be excited and pleasantly surprised!
