The de Ferrers Academy bases its approach to learning on its “Aspire and Achieve” ethos.. The Academy’s expansion has been facilitated by the acquisition of a third site for its popular Sixth Form in the town centre. This has led to a re-organisation of the students, with Y7 and Y8 educated at the Dove Campus, and Y9-Y11 at the Trent Campus which are half a mile apart. We were delighted by our Ofsted inspection of January 2017 which emphasises the outstanding aspects of our work, including high levels of progress and attainment. Staff are valued by the Academy and this is reflected in the wide range of professional development opportunities which are offered both internally and externally. In recent years the Academy has developed an international reputation for learning technologies, becoming both an Apple Distinguished School and Regional Training Centre; we provide a 1-to-1 iPad programme for all students in Y9-Y13.

· Preparation of materials as directed, distribution of apparatus and clearing away equipment.

· Setting up and trying out experiments prior to lessons, assessments and examinations.

· Assisting staff in practical lessons, preparation of teaching aids, maintaining apparatus.

· Contributing to the smooth running of the Science Faculty.

All prospective candidates are very welcome to visit the Academy, to tour and meet with members of the faculty, and meet with our students. .  As the Academy of Choice for the local area, you will feel part of a supported community and, most importantly, a warm and friendly environment in which to educate our young people.  We offer an employee reward package which includes car leasing discounts and our own independent travel consultant.   

This role offers an exceptional opportunity to the successful candidate.  A full job description and application details can be accessed via the Academy’s website, or alternatively please contact Samantha Lawless on 01283 247700.   Please note completed applications should be received by 9:00 am on the closing date.
