Welcome to Wodensborough

Our "inclusive and welcoming" school "is improving across all key areas" and we are now full and over-subscribed at Key Stage 3 for the second consecutive year.  Personal development, behaviour and welfare are now "Good" as are Leadership and Management. We are very much on the journey to becoming a "Good" school and we are immensely proud of our achievements to date. We invest in our staff and value their work and their contribution to raising standards. We are proud to serve our local community and we are proud to be part of the Ormiston Academies Trust, a family of schools who are all committed to being the trust that makes the biggest difference. We are now seeking to appoint an individual who shares our passion and commitment to ensuring the very highest standards of provision for all pupils and who can take personal development, behaviour and welfare to outstanding.

Due to rapidly increasing pupil numbers, we are looking for someone with a passion for teaching & learning in vocational and applied learning who can play an instrumental role in leading a team of dedicated teachers who deliver excellent outcomes in a variety of vocational subjects.  Experience  in teaching Business and/or ICT would be desirable. You will have a passion for working with disadvantaged young people and will want to play a vital role in improving outcomes for all learners. 

There is opportunity to progress through the curriculum career route and we can offer accredited leadership development programmes (NPQML & NPQSL) for suitable candidates who are keen to progress beyond the faculty in the future.  Whatever your experience, you will be passionate about teaching; able to inspire others and committed to securing successful futures for our students!

You will join a supportive, highly talented and committed team of staff who consistently achieve record examination results and excellent progress rates for all learners. You will also be part of a wider team who are proud to work at Wodensborough and who share an unwavering commitment to changing lives for young people in our local community.

A move to Wodensborough is a move you will not regret. If you believe that children come first and want to feel valued as a professional, please come and see us.

Wodensborough is committed to the safeguarding of children and all staff are expected to ensure that the academy is a safe and secure environment for our students.
