In 2017, Newfield School was in the top 2% of the country for GCSE performance and in 2018 we celebrated another superb set of results that currently place us 4th in the city.

Mercia Learning Trust, one of the most successful Trusts in the Yorkshire and Humber region, changes the lives of over 3000 children and young people in Sheffield and is continuing to grow.

It is an exciting time to work at Newfield.  We are building on our ‘Good’ Ofsted judgement and have a set of ambitious priorities that will make our school truly remarkable.  

Newfield School is a special place to work.  Our students are well-behaved and ambitious.  Our staff are dedicated to improving the life chances of all our young people.  The core business of teaching and learning is at the heart of all we do.  We have high expectations of our staff but we also value and look after them.  We balance hard work with meaningful and tailored professional development, great practice every day with a manageable workload.  Our school is successful.  If you are reading this, you will have ‘googled’ our results.  We will continue to make exceptional progress with our students this year and into the future.

Our values drive all we do at Newfield School and we believe that ‘achievement leads to opportunity and choice’.

•    We are high performing because we are curious and have a thirst for knowledge
 •    We are considerate and value our community
 •    We succeed through dedication and relentless ambition

At Newfield School we believe that our students are future scholars in their chosen fields and that teachers are the experts in the classroom who should impart their knowledge to students.  We use the best evidence to lead our approach to learning and teaching, and follow approaches that are supported by cognitive science.  As a result, lessons are structured around the explicit teaching and assessment of knowledge.  They are characterised by rapid progress, whole class drills, repetition of facts, teacher led instruction and high performance regardless of ability or background.

Imaginative and committed, you will have a passion for your subject, high standards of professionalism and high expectations of students.  We support applications from candidates who understand and support our approach to teaching and learning.  

For an informal and confidential discussion, please contact Mrs Mitchell, Head of History, on 0114 255 7331 or email enquiries@newfield.sheffield.sch.uk.  We welcome visits to the school prior to application.  

Closing date for applications is Thursday 18 October 2018. 

Interviews are expected to take place week commencing 22 October 2018.
