 Appleton Academy is an all through learning environment for pupils from nursery through to secondary and our building provides a wonderful environment for lifelong learning, in South Bradford.

This post has arisen following a restructure of leadership posts which has brought the leadership of the core subject areas into alignment. As mathematics is a subject area still requiring significant improvement in progress and outcomes, this post would be ideal for a candidate who has a real passion for mathematics teaching and development and a drive for school improvement. 

The successful candidate will be required to develop the secondary mathematics curriculum, develop a team of teachers with a great deal of potential and to build a sense of excitement for the subject.   The successful applicant will be part of a team leading the development of the curriculum across the Academy, working with primary colleagues in strengthening the primary to secondary continuum of learning and maximising opportunities to consolidate learning across secondary subject areas such as science, mathematics and geography. 

As Exceed Academies Trust develops Secondary SCITT, there may be opportunities for Assistant Principals to work with the Teaching School in a wider context.

We are looking for a creative and inspirational individual to join the Academy.   We require an experienced practitioner who can lead a wide ranging team of professionals working with students and parents to ensure each one achieves the best possible outcomes. The successful candidate will be an individual with the ability to motivate, lead and inspire both students and staff and who will be part of the school senior leadership team with a salary paid on the leadership pay scale to reflect the importance of this key role. 

The successful applicant will:

• Have experience at middle leader level

• Be able to evidence that they are an outstanding secondary age classroom practitioner

• Have the commitment to excellence and the achievement of learners

• Have evidence of current and relevant, leadership CPD

We can offer:

• A committed staff team

• Opportunities for innovative ways of working

• Excellent CPD 

• An opportunity to build and further develop good practice

• High quality professional development opportunities

In September 2017 we joined the Exceed Academies Trust.  The Trust recognises its moral purpose to support schools and academies across the city and the region and this has underpinned the accreditation and development of two Teaching Schools that jointly lead the alliance of partner schools and academies.  As Exceed Academies Trust develops a Secondary SCITT, there may be opportunities for Assistant Principals to work with the Teaching School in a wider context
