  • A true community school where it feels like you are making a difference
  • An ethos of care for students and staff alike
  • A leadership team that supports staff in all they do – Great progression opportunities

In March 2019 we became a Platinum Investors in People School placing us in the top 1% of employers nationally.  The following comment from the report sums up what it is like to work in our community:

Leaders invest heavily in their staff, for example they provide opportunities for staff to take care of both their physical and mental health.  Staff feel valued and like working at the school.  They comment favourably on Leaders’ attempts to reduce unnecessary workload, enable flexible working and respond positively to reasonable requests for compassionate or other leave.”

Please have a look at our website to find out more about how we can offer you a superb work/life balance.

We are currently looking for an Unqualified Teacher to join us, within EduK8. EduK8 is a bespoke area of the school that works with vulnerable students and those at risk of permanent exclusion.  Our January 2018 inspection report remarked that “Pupils taking time in the EduK8 provision make good progress.  Many of these pupils were not doing as well as they could before they joined EduK8.  They are less distracted and are learning more now.”  We have become a local centre of excellence for how a school can be truly inclusive.

We offer excellent support and training for any colleague we employ.  Please feel free to contact the school to find out more details about this exciting post. 

If you are an effective practitioner with the ability to inspire and motivate students, we would like to hear from you.
