The Bishop of Winchester Academy is an oversubscribed and thriving Church of England School, recognised by Ofsted as ‘Improving the life chances of all its pupils’ (May 2017). There are exciting opportunities to join our motivated and ambitious team driven by the mantra of high expectations – no excuses.
We are looking for an exceptional person to manage our ALC, for identified students who have been removed from lessons to complete their timetabled work, in a way that supports our Academy culture for learning and ethos.

You will be a determined and resilient individual who believes in a strong, ‘tough love’ approach to discipline and understand the importance of fostering a growth mindset with students.

We are proud of our unique Christian ethos and links with the local church communities. We welcome applications from prospective new staff prepared to share in the experience of school improvement.
