As a driven, focused leader, your track record of improving results will make you perfect for this role.

Beacon Academy is part of Academies Enterprise Trust (AET) national network of over 60 primary, secondary and special academies.

We passionately believe that every child can discover their own remarkable life. It’s what motivates us. We know this vision requires something extra. Which is why at AET, you’ll find more. More opportunities, so you can forge your own path. More care and support, so you can prioritise what matters most. More purpose, for you and for the children we are inspiring. 

We offer:

  • More like minded colleagues, so you can benefit from others’ experience - You’re connected to our network of over 60 academies and thousands of education professionals.
  • More opportunities, so you can forge your own path - As a large and expanding multi academy trust, there are ample opportunities for development and new experiences. 
  • More hands on support, so you can get on with what matters most - Expert operations support removes headaches, allowing you to focus on the children. 
  • More technology so you can make more impact - G Suite for Education embedded throughout. Collaborative cloud technology gives you access to the latest tools, when and where it suits you. More tech enabled classrooms mean less time spent on admin and more time teaching.
  • More time - We strive to minimise unnecessary distractions so you can have energy for your job, and your life.

If you are a truly inspirational, highly motivated and forward-thinking leader, with the energy and passion to change lives then this could be an excellent opportunity for you.
