Castle View AcademyPortsmouth

The role

Are you the super hero we are looking for?

Castle View is a rapidly expanding (12 -16) academy based on the edge of Portsmouth, serving the community of Paulsgrove. We are part of the United Learning group, the largest multi academy trust in the UK, and we are seeking a driven, ambitious and aspiring leader to join our team.

In the summer of 2020 we recorded year on year, record-breaking examination results, with 74% of students achieving 4+ and 53% 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, developing strong teams and having significant whole school impact, to join our team.

About You:

You will be dedicated, enthusiastic, and motivated to achieve outstanding outcomes for our young people. You will join an academy that is committed to allowing teachers to teach in a disruption free learning environment and with the full support of an academy leadership team committed, to your professional development. You will use your motivation to lead a team of highly skilled practitioners with a range of experiences and expertise, all committed to the education of our students. We consider our English team to be the ‘best in Portsmouth’ and we are confident you will enjoy leading this amazing group.

To be a senior leader at our academy you must have a sense of humour, excellent subject knowledge, be ambitious for the team and have a proven track record of raising attainment and smashing targets out of the park.

If you are conscientious, a dedicated team player, able to relate to staff and students, have a desire to work in a disruption free learning environment and are passionate about making a difference, we want to hear from you.

The successful applicant will also have the opportunity to work closely with our Academy sponsor and English subject advisor across the South.

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’.
