In 2002, we moved into an amazing new campus as part of the PFI initiative and continue to invest in high quality facilities; the latest project being a multi-million pound Sixth Form Centre opened in September 2008.

The Academy offers successful candidates an exceptional opportunity to work in a strong, highly motivated, supportive and forward thinking team environment where the challenge is to continue providing “Outstanding” efforts to our pupils and cement our reputation as the “Best 11-18 School in the country”.

  • Excellent resources
  • The opportunities only a large 11-18 school can offer in terms of the range of courses and assessments and enrichment activities

In return we expect you to:

  • Strive to be an excellent classroom practitioner with high expectations of students’ learning and behaviour
  • Contribute to the team by having the ability to lead, motivate and support colleagues
  • Have lots of energy, enthusiasm and a sense of humour
