We are looking for a teacher of Art and Design with the drive and experience to ensure that our students make even further progress over the coming years and to improve Progress 8 outcomes of all students. We are particularly interested in any candidates who are able to teach to GCSE level in photography, product design and graphics.
There has never been a better time to seek employment at The Winsford Academy, as we share a new and dynamic sponsorship arrangement with the highly regarded and outstanding Fallibroome Multi Academy Trust, based in Macclesfield. This has presented us with great support and excellent opportunities for collaboration.
In May 2016 the Academy was judged, by Ofsted, to be Good for ‘overall effectiveness’ and commended for ‘rapid and sustained improvement’ since incorporation into The Fallibroome Trust in September 2014. Inspectors were impressed with pupils’ behaviour and pride in their school and commended a ‘culture of improving learning’ which meant that pupils made ‘good progress in their subjects and very good progress in English’. Teachers were commended for their high expectations and for challenging able-pupils to achieve high standards and for the quality of care provided for all pupils.
Our Academy is an 11-‐16 mixed comprehensive school and we currently have 904 students. Our intake is non-‐selective and varied, including children from a wide range of homes and backgrounds. We pride ourselves in our inclusive approach but we never compromise on high expectations.
We are very proud of our Academy and the achievements of our students who demonstrate a diverse range of talents and positive attitudes to learning. Our highly committed staff put the child at the centre of everything they do. Consequently, the Academy has seen impressive improvements in academic achievement. Our attainment and progress rates in English and Mathematics are above national average, the gap between pupil premium and non‐pupil premium students is significantly lower than the national average and we have seen major improvements in our attendance figures, moving from 89% in 2010 to 94.6% in 2016. Students enjoy coming to the academy!
