This role supports identified students with special educational needs and/or disabilities to enable them to access the curriculum. Candidates should possess excellent interpersonal and listening skills with a commitment to helping each student achieve their full potential.

This is an exciting time for Three Rivers Academy as our new school building has just opened. The new school will allow for an increased roll and provide state of the art, purpose built provision for our students, all under one roof. We are enthusiastic about our students learning and believe they deserve the best provision. The strength, determination and passion within our community enable us to continually improve.

Year 11 students are celebrating a combined percentage of 60% Grade 4 and above in English and Maths – a fantastic 15% rise in just over one year of leading the school.

Head of School, Anne-Louise Payne, said "These fantastic results are testament to the hard work and commitment our students have shown throughout this academic year. Since joining The Howard Partnership Trust, a little over one year ago, we have introduced more aspirational targets and I am very proud that the students have clearly risen to the challenge! Improved attitudes to learning, support from parents, and the hard work and dedication of staff have resulted in more students being able to access both A Level and vocational pathways.”

The Howard Partnership Trust is proud to be working in partnership with Three Rivers Academy and supporting the school at this exciting time in its development. Please see our website www.thehowardpartnership.org/Our-Staff/ for further information.
