We have a growing reputation in the local area as a caring school with high expectations of learning, behaviour and attendance. The rapidly growing demand for places at Weavers Academy presents us with this opportunity to increase our staffing in a number of different subjects.  

Results at GCSE between 2016-2018 were in line with or close to national averages and progress was strong. 

The school was judged ‘good’ in all areas in May 2017 (Ofsted).

As one of the most improved schools in the UK over the last 3 years we attribute our success to our emphasis on coaching and professional development of our staff.

Staff have considerable access to a broad range of opportunities to further develop their practice. 

We are on-going participants in a number of programmes including ‘Teaching Leaders’, Olevi’s ‘Outstanding Teacher Programme’ and ‘Future Leaders’. 

In addition, our staff have abundant opportunities to debate their practice through the ‘Breakfast Learning Club’ and to participate in school-to-school development as part of the growing multi-academy trust ‘Creative Education Trust’ that is well supported by leaders in education across the country.   

Successful candidates will join a collaborative and committed staff team that have a vision to succeed through a shared focus on teaching and learning.
