We are relentless in our pursuit of the very best for all our students. We understand challenges but do not accept them as limitations.

We are an ambitious school on a transformational journey to excellence and are always looking for excellent potential colleagues to come and help us achieve the very best for our students.

We are looking to appoint inspirational and dynamic colleagues to join our team of committed and dedicated professionals who will do whatever it takes to help our young people achieve great things – beyond expectations. As part of the Behaviour and Engagement team you will be working to ensure we maintain a calm and orderly learning culture where students are well supported to meet high expectations and be brilliantly successful. We are looking for an individual with the ability to build strong, supportive and effective relationships with pupils, staff and parents. Someone who can create a variety of strategies to support and mentor pupils to re-engage them with their learning. Initially working as part of a team to ensure day to day high standards of conduct and engagement this newly created role will develop into providing one-to-one and group work support which helps pupils develop excellent skills in self regulation and effective organisation – all contributing to ensuring individual engagement and building a successful and ambitious future. We believe all adults are role models and this role will be no different. Whether helping to ensure students are in the right place at the right time, helping to resolve a difficulty, providing information and advice or supporting students to overcome barriers – this high profile, extremely rewarding role requires a calm, professional approach with high levels of emotional intelligence, energy and drive. Through regular and meaningful contact you will forge profitable and trusting relationships that inspire confidence. Our new colleague will have an unstinting belief that every young person, whatever their starting point or circumstances, can make and sustain exceptional progress and that our purpose is to change lives. You will work hard to understand their individuality and help resolve barriers to their achievement – making a real difference to our students and our community. No two days will ever be the same – although they will always be rewarding and exciting. Your previous experience in an educational setting is less important to us than your experience of working with young people and your ability to understand their perceptions and individuality. We are keen to hear from interested colleagues from a variety of relevant backgrounds. Because you have a calm, personable and patient manner and because you are consistent, persistent and interested in them you will know why that is. Above all our new colleague will have an unstinting belief that every young person, whatever their starting point or circumstances, can make and sustain exceptional progress and that our purpose is to change lives. You will have access to on-going development opportunities and the support of a forward thinking, successful multi-academy trust.
