Darwen Aldridge Community Academy is looking for an outstanding middle or senior leader, who is ready for the next step in their career, to lead teaching, learning and assessment.
This is a significant and developmental role on our senior leadership team and will act as a catalyst to transform all aspects of teaching and learning, help to shape the future of our curriculum and assessment and to further embed our entrepreneurial spirit through the day to day learning experience.
We are looking for someone who believes in the value of collaboration and coaching, that high quality teaching can be shared and developed and that any child can achieve the highest grades regardless of background or prior attainment.
This is an opportunity to join an experienced and supportive senior leadership team and enthusiastic colleagues at an exciting stage in our journey towards excellence.

We have excellent facilities and our sixth form is in the top 10% of all sixth forms nationally. Our vision and ethos is centred around the Aldridge Attributes of creativity, determination, risk taking, team work, passion and problem solving.
We are part of a cluster of schools in the North West, which includes Darwen Vale high School, Darwen Aldridge Enterprise Studio, Sudell Primary School and UTC Media City in Salford. We are part of the Aldridge Education MAT.
