Head of DT

Brayton AcademyNorth Yorkshire

Brayton Academy seek an inspiring and ambitious Head of DT to join our ‘Outstanding in all areas’ academy. The successful candidate will have an exceptional teaching ability, have the skills to motivate and engage students, and will have a relentless ambition to enrich the lives and learning experiences of our young people. You will also be an inspirational leader who can manage and support colleagues and have the vision to shape the future successes of an established department. We are looking for someone who has experience of all disciplines within DT, with a focus on Materials.

Brayton Academy was awarded ‘Outstanding in all areas’ at the Ofsted inspection in June 2019 and highlighted the pupils’ exemplary behaviour and excellent attitudes to learning, the outstanding Leadership Team and the substantial progress made by pupils in lesson thanks to skilful teaching. This is an excellent time to join this thriving academy.

Brayton Academy is part of The Rodillian Multi Academy Trust which has a reputation for high expectations for all, an innovative curriculum and excellent staff/student relationships. It is regarded as one of the most successful Trusts in the country and is recognised as an organisation that does things differently. Our academies are a place where staff can develop their skills and find their own style and methods of teaching. Colleagues learn and grow alongside our students and feel that they are making a real difference to the lives of those they teach. We believe that traditional values of discipline and respect are sacrosanct. We do not tolerate bullying, defiance or rudeness, and this has made for a harmonious and safe learning environment for our young people and a supportive environment for staff.

This is a real opportunity for you to make your mark, and as a growing Multi Academy Trust with an excellent reputation, there are always opportunities for career development for ambitious and committed colleagues.

Prospective candidates are welcome to contact the academy via Jo Braham, PA to Head of School at to arrange a discussion about this opportunity.

The Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment. The successful candidate will be required to undertake an Enhanced Disclosure check by the Disclosure and Barring Service.
