Director of Learning for Mathematics

Rugby Free Secondary SchoolWarwickshire

Rugby Free Secondary School opened in 2016 and has just moved into a brand-new purpose-built facility. The road hasn’t been smooth, but it is a school committed to providing success for all of its students and providing a workplace that supports its staff to ensure they are able to work to the best of their ability for our students every day. You won’t find teachers and staff anywhere else who are as committed to a school’s purpose and supporting its success.

We are currently graded as inadequate by Ofsted (May 2019) but on our first monitoring visit (December 2019) and then again in February 2021, it was recognised just how much the school has improved in such a short space of time. Our aim is to be at least ‘good’ by December 2021.
