The RSA Academy in Tipton (West Midlands) is an oversubscribed and expanding 11-19 school with 1047 students (including Sixth Form). This will rise to 1200 plus sixth form over the next four years. The school has been at the heart of our community since becoming an academy in 2008, and a member of the RSA Family of Academies. The school joined the Central RSA Academies Trust on 1st October 2017.
The Academy was judged to be ‘good’ by Ofsted inspection in July 2016. The school is highly aspirational, boasting fantastic facilities for both students and staff, including a £5 million new build block, to enable expansion that opened in September. Significant changes have been made in the last year to remove barriers to improvement, and the successful candidate will be joining the school at a critical and exciting time to drive things forward.
The role description has been kept intentionally flexible as following the appointment of a Curriculum Lead allows us to tailor the support available in this role so that we can support a variety of practitioners in different career stages such as
• Experienced middle leaders
• New/aspiring middle leaders
• Classroom teachers looking to take their first steps into departmental responsibility (KS coordinators etc)
The successful candidate will have a proven track record of enabling high achievement with excellent outcomes at all key stages to move forward and build on the successes of last year’s exam results.
You will be passionate about the teaching of English and driven to share high quality and innovative practice in the classroom.
