Working as part of The GORSE Academies Trust, The Ruth Gorse Academy will ensure that students receive an outstanding education that focuses on aspiration, high expectations and personalisation. Together these non-negotiable values will instil in young people a self-belief that enables students to access the highest standard of higher educational 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.  

We are seeking to appoint an Inclusion Support Manager to join The Ruth Gorse Academy supporting our journey to become a truly outstanding establishment. The successful candidate will demonstrate integrity and a strong record of effective practice.  Working alongside the pastoral staff members the post holder will create an ‘Outstanding’ inclusion provision to support The Ruth Gorse Academy’s transition to a 1,260 11-16 provision.  They will assist with raising the aspirations and standards for students who have barriers to learning, who are disengaged, isolated or excluded from the academy.  

This is an exciting opportunity for a candidate who is keen to be at the forefront of our organisational change. The GORSE Academies Trust continues to demonstrate exceptional opportunities for the students within the Trust. Recently, The Ruth Gorse Academy joined Hillcrest Academy, The Morley Academy and The Farnley Academy in being rated as Outstanding in all categories in their OFSTED inspections.  

The Ruth Gorse Academy is an 11–16, co-educational academy which opened with an initial cohort of 95 Year 7 students, growing each year to a maximum cohort of 1250 students.
