About Firth Park Academy

**Please scroll to the bottom of this page to view our live vacancies**

Firth Park Academy is proud to be a Good school and determined to become an Outstanding school. We are a wonderfully diverse family of students and staff where our vision is to inspire all students to lead remarkable lives. We offer the widest range of extra-curricular enrichment possible to ensure our students are rich in knowledge and character. We want students to achieve academic excellence, develop strength of character and above all else, be happy.  Our school is:

  • A stronger-than-ever ‘Good’ school as rated by Ofsted (February 2019).
  • Home of an Extended School Day for all year groups to ensure the broadest possible curriculum of academic learning and extra-curricular experiences
  • Featured on CBBC’s series Our School 7 currently on iPlayer, which highlights the remarkable spirit of our Year 7 and 8 students and staff in the 2020-21 school year.
  • A richly diverse community with students speaking more than 30 home languages.
  • A leading school in our trust – Academies Enterprise Trust – one of the largest trusts in the UK with more career development opportunities than any other.

We love to help our students learn and value the staff who help them do so, thanks to:

  • A real ethos of family where we all value strong positive relationships and support each other.
  • An outstanding professional development programme for staff at all stages of their career.
  • A ‘3 in 3 years’ leadership development programme for high achieving staff. This promises staff a TLR responsibility, bursary support toward Masters completion if required, and mini-secondment at a partner AET Academy to grow our future leaders.
