Winner of an SSAT Educational Outcomes Award for 2015, The Macclesfield Academy is a successful and expanding 11-16 school serving a diverse community in South Macclesfield. The Academy opened in 2011 with a mission to make a distinctive contribution to the provision of secondary education in Macclesfield by becoming an outstanding small school characterised by:
• a welcoming community,
• a personalised curriculum and
• an enriched experience for all our students.
The Academy has become the school of choice for many Macclesfield families and was oversubscribed in 2016 and 2017. We expect this to be the case once again in 2018 as our numbers continue to rise to a targeted maximum of 600. 95% of our parents say that they would recommend the Macclesfield Academy to a friend.
We require for 1st September 2018:
a high quality Humanities teacher who is fully committed to the aims and values of the Academy. It is essential that the person we appoint can teach History to GCSE. History has an established track record of success and we expect, once again, to have two GCSE groups next year. All our Humanities teachers teach RE at Key Stage 3. Willingness to contribute to this programme is essential. While experience in RE at this level is desirable, we are confident that we would be able to provide an adaptable and enthusiastic colleague with the support and training they would need. We believe this post offers an excellent opportunity for an experienced or a newly qualified colleague looking to join a friendly and successful team. Our Subject Leader for Humanities, Mrs Vicki Dooley, will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Vicki can be contacted on Vicki.Dooley@macclesfieldacademy.org.
This post will be paid on the scale M1-M6 and the candidate appointed will be able to access our wide-ranging CPD programme including performance coaching and NQT mentoring as appropriate. Further details are available on the Academy website at www.macclesfieldacademy.org.
Application is by the Academy or TES standard application form and should include a supporting statement demonstrating how you meet the requirements for the post. The deadline for applications is 9.00 on Monday 23rd April. Applications for this post must be made using the appropriate forms and sent by email only to: TMArecruitment@macclesfieldacademy.org. Curricula vitae or open testimonials will not be considered.
