Outwood Academy Bydales and/or Outwood Academy Redcar.

The ability to teach another Humanity to GCSE would be desirable.

Outwood Academy Bydales seeks applications from outstanding applicants with integrity, imagination and energy for this rewarding role. The position would be based at Outwood Academy Bydales and/or some deployment at Outwood Academy Redcar and therefore may requiring driving.

Set in the beautiful coastal village of Marske-by-the-Sea, close to the North York Moors National Park, Outwood Academy Bydales is a medium-sized school with a strong record of rapid and sustained success.

In 2015, our first year as an Outwood school, students exceeded the best performance of the predecessor school by 13%, back when it had been judged outstanding by Ofsted. In January 2016, we were named as the highest performing school in the five Tees Valley authorities for valued added, and among the top 5% nationally. The percentage of students achieving C+ in English and maths rose again to 78% in 2016, and to 85% (at 4+) the following year. In 2017, at 75% students achieved the highest percentage of 5+ grades in both English and maths in the North East, and were second for Attainment 8 too.

The predecessor Redcar Academy has been supported by Outwood Grange Academies Trust for two years, and formally became Outwood Academy Redcar in October 2017. It is the second highest performing school in Redcar & Cleveland for progress of students, is 7th in the Tees Valley and 22nd in the North East, out of 149 mainstream schools. The academy too is on a journey of rapid improvement. 

In short, these are exceptional places to build your future, whether you are a student keen to learn or a teacher determined to progress.

We are looking for a full time teacher of History commencing in September 2018, or April 2018 if possible. This is a fantastic opportunity for an enthusiastic, driven professional to join our Family of Schools. An excellent knowledge and understanding of History is essential, and the ability to teach another Humanity subject to GCSE would be helpful. You must possess the skills and determination to make a significant difference to the lives of our students and share our single goal of ‘students first’.

Applications are invited from both newly qualified and experienced professionals. 

The Outwood Grange Family of Schools offers: 

  • The opportunity to work and progress across the Family of Schools. 
  • The chance to apply for leadership roles in the Deeps working across the whole Academy. 
  • The support and expertise of our Directors of mathematics working across the Family of Schools. 
  • A full and detailed programme of support and development for NQTs. 
  • A further comprehensive programme of professional development is provided through the Outwood Institute of Education (formerly the teaching school).

We believe that all teaching and support staff posts within our Family of Schools are key posts in terms of supporting student success and achievement across a broad range of subjects and experiences. As such we are keen to recruit dedicated and ambitious professionals who will add value to our Academy in both academic terms and through involvement in the fabric of learning and success beyond the classroom.
