Working as part of The GORSE Academies Trust, The Ruth Gorse Academy ensures that students receive an outstanding education that focuses on aspiration, high expectations and personalisation. Together these non-negotiable values instil in young people a self-belief that enables students to access the highest standard of higher education provision and employment. We believe that poverty and deprivation should, in no way, limit either the quality of a young person’s educational experience or the levels of achievement to which those students are able to rise.  In July 2017 the exceptional nature of our work at The Ruth Gorse Academy was recognised by Ofsted; we would encourage you to read the Outstanding Ofsted report which is available on our website.  

We are looking to appoint an Inclusion and Safeguarding Officer to support the day to day inclusion and safeguarding systems and processes across the Academy and to provide high quality mentoring to students within the Academy, taking ownership for the success of the interventions provided. 

Led by Sir John Townsley the nationally renowned GORSE Academies Trust is strong and united.  As a professional within the Trust you will have regular opportunities to work in partnership with colleagues within the other secondary academies and across phase; at secondary level three of the four secondary academies have been graded by Ofsted as Outstanding and two secondary academies have achieved the World Class Schools Quality Mark Award.
