Tollbar Multi Academy Trust
As part of an ever growing Multi Academy Trust, each individual Academy provides an integral part of an organisation driving to achieve excellence for education, across every site and for each of the communities they represent. Cooperation between member schools is at the forefront of creating successful practices across the MAT and this collaboration enriches staff and students alike. Currently we are expanding into the Louth area of Lincolnshire. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. As part of this process, all successful applicants will be required to apply for an enhanced DBS.
Somercotes Academy prides itself in providing career progression opportunities for staff of all levels and experience. A number of pastoral and curriculum management roles are currently held by former NQTs, who began their teaching careers at the academy. CPD is an integral part of our Vision, with regular training opportunities for all staff.
Staff benefit from a computer work room equipped with modern pc work stations and recently, a refurbishment of classrooms has included installation of new whiteboards and projectors, new teacher's workstations, new flooring, new windows and redecoration. Investing in new facilities and resources is at the forefront of the academy's priorities.
