Bedford Academy has a six year record of improving results and in Science results have risen dramatically. Since opening we have moved into our new state of the art building and became a secondary school adding years 7 and 8. This year Bedford Academy, an Ofsted good school with outstanding leadership (October 2015), has formed HEART Academies Trust with 3 other local schools.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a well-qualified, driven professional, who is an outstanding classroom practitioner, to join our Family of Schools. You will be an inspiring leader with the energy and creativity to lead and motivate a team. You must possess the skills and determination to make a significant difference to the lives of our students and share our belief in the highest standards of academic achievement in an inclusive setting. 

You will be an excellent teacher with the ability to deliver at key stage 3, 4 and 5. You will also have the leadership experience and the ability to challenge individuals within your team whilst supporting them to achieve outstanding results. We are committed to delivering the best possible Science curriculum and the Director of Achievement will be working strategically with our new Science Academy to establish outstanding CPD across the Family of Schools. 

There are significant opportunities for your development through the HEART Academies Trust Family of Schools and this role will prepare you, should you wish, for either Senior Leadership or a School Improvement role within the Family. HEART Academies Trust is committed to provide high quality professional development for all staff. 

You will be joining a highly innovative, inspirational and ambitious organisation, so we are seeking only outstanding candidates who can realise the highest possible quality of services to support our educational vision. Your strong leadership and ability to provide effective support to colleagues will enable the organisation to achieve the best possible outcomes for all of our students. 

We wish to appoint someone who has:

• Excellent teaching, reflective and interpersonal skills

• The ability to work as part of teams and be flexible

• High quality organisational skills

• The ability and drive to improve all student outcomes

As a member of our staff team we can offer:

• Excellent professional development opportunities and career progression

• A friendly and supportive working environment

• Opportunities to play a role in the evolution of maths teaching across the Trust

• A modern, state of the art working environment

If you are passionate about improving outcomes for students and you are looking for an exciting opportunity to have a real impact in a fast-paced, innovative environment, then this could be the job for you. 

HEART Academies Trust is committed to safeguarding the welfare of young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. All appointments are subject to DBS checks and excellent references.
