ABOUT BEST (Bedfordshire Schools Trust)

BEST comprises seven flourishing academies delivering first choice education from Early Years to Advanced Level study. Our vision is ‘to grow the BEST in everyone.’ We believe in the importance of high expectations, hard work and the development of a community of schools where each of us strive to ‘be the best that we can be.’ Our schools work together to add value and compete to continually improve.


Working at Etonbury is an unprecedented opportunity to be involved in a genuinely exciting and innovative growth programme and have real influence and input into shaping the future development and success of this creative and rural community school. Etonbury Academy has expanded and developed rapidly from a small middle school into an extended secondary school. A major site redevelopment, completed for September 2018, has stunning new teaching and sports/leisure facilities in a beautiful rural setting providing over 1100 students with a fantastic environment to learn, and our staff to work.

Behaviour and Ethos were recently named Areas of National Excellence in a Challenge Partners Review. Parent and Carer’s surveys show extremely high levels of satisfaction with the school, and the Academy is heavily oversubscribed. KS2 results are well above national averages and above national averages for Outstanding schools. Etonbury Academy is driving forward with energy and vigour to meet the growth and development challenges identified in our recent inspection. Victoria Pendleton CBE is our honorary patron. 

Membership of the Trust means that opportunities available to staff are varied and wide-ranging. The Trust includes a Teaching School offering training and development opportunities for all staff. The growth and development of Etonbury ensures that there are also many opportunities for staff to rapidly progress their careers if they so wish.


Due to the continued expansion of the school, we are looking to appoint an exceptional Head of Maths who can lead a growing team with a breadth of experience. With plenty of opportunity to lead and develop the team and department, this will provide an aspiring or experienced Head of Maths with a fantastic prospect to create a first class department in the Trust. You will have additional support from the Director of Maths for the Trust.
