We believe in the importance of fostering a love of learning through high quality teaching that stretches and challenges the most able students without leaving behind those who need more support. We also firmly believe in the importance of stimulating curiosity through exposure to a wide range of activities and opportunities beyond the classroom.

"At the heart of your approach is the drive to improve the quality of teaching to ensure that all pupils are appropriately challenged. This approach is having a positive impact on the quality of pupils’ learning. Teaching challenges pupils to think hard and aim high. This is particularly the case where teachers model subject-specific language and expect pupils to use this language precisely when talking about their learning." Ofsted 2018

As an inclusive academy, our focus is on each child as an individual in order to bring out the best in him or her, to find out what inspires them, and how we can ensure that they reach their full potential and exceed expectations.

We’re looking for staff who share these values and who are passionate about bringing out the best in every student, whatever their role is within the academy.

Working at the academy means the opportunity to work in a rich and diverse community, amongst like-minded people who are passionate about enabling students to fulfill their potential and achieve success in whichever field they decide to pursue.

As an educational institution, we are also passionate about staff development and CDP. Staff have access to a wide range of professional development opportunities including up to 9 training days per year and are actively encouraged to participate in CPD. We have been recognised by Ofsted as a strong provider of training and development for both new and current staff, whether in teaching or support roles. 

Staff also benefit from:

  • Heavily subsidised sports club & fitness classes
  • Subsidised café selling fresh coffees, sandwiches, salads and snacks
  • Up to 9 Teaching & Learning Days per year
  • Cycle To Work Scheme
  • Eyecare vouchers
