About You

Are you the super hero we are looking for?

Castle View is a rapidly improving (12 -16) academy based on the edge of Portsmouth, serving the community of Paulsgrove. Having relocated to a brand-new building on the 1st December 2017 the school joined the United Learning group, the largest multi academy trust in the UK, on the 1st March 2018.

In the summer of 2019 we recorded year on year, record-breaking examination results, with 63% of students achieving 4+ and 45% 5+ in English. We know this is not good enough for our community and we are now seeking a ‘super hero’ with a proven record of raising outcomes and having significant impact, to join our team.

United Learning

Castle View Academy is part of United Learning, a large, and growing, group of schools aiming to offer a life changing education to children and young people across England.

Our schools work as a team and achieve more by sharing than any single school could. Our subject specialists, our Group-wide intranet, our own curriculum and our online learning portal all help us share knowledge and resource, helping to simplify work processes and manage workloads for an improved work-life balance.

As a Group, we can reward our staff better: with good career opportunities, better pay, benefits, and ultimately, the satisfaction of helping children to succeed. We invest in our staff wellbeing. Our academies each have at least eight INSET days per year (with three of those solely dedicated to planning), and an ongoing group-wide wellbeing programme. It's an ethos we call ‘the best in everyone’.
