Bedford Academy has reviewed its pastoral structure and systems for this September and this exciting vacancy has arisen as a result. We are looking for a strong leader to join our new but inspirational pastoral team, leading current year 8 as they grow through the school. The ability to teach a core subject is an advantage.

Since opening, we have moved into our new state of the art building and in 2013 became a secondary school adding years 7 and 8. Last 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 teacher with the energy and creativity to lead and support the team of tutors. 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 communicator; a people person able to reach out to all families and professionals. You will be well supported by our experienced team at the Academy. 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 further roles 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. 

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

· Strong subject knowledge

· A good grasp of pastoral responsibilities

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.
