Axe Valley Academy is entering a very exciting period in its development. After working in a formal partnership with Holyrood Academy in Chard since April 2016, Axe Valley Academy became part of the Vector Learning Trust on 1st April 2017. We believe that the benefits of working within the Trust and the extra capacity that this will bring will be hugely beneficial to us as we look to further develop the Academy at pace in the coming months and years.

We are seeking to appoint an excellent teacher of KS4 & 5 Psychology and KS5 Sociology who has the energy and enthusiasm needed to inspire and motivate students. The candidate must have high expectations and want to work within a school where we are ambitious for all our students whatever their abilities. 

The person appointed will have:

  • High standards and expectations 
  • Highly developed interpersonal skills 
  • A commitment to team work 
  • A positive outlook
  • Excellent subject knowledge
  • The drive to succeed


You will be joining a department which has a dynamic, supportive team ethos and continually seeks to improve the teaching and learning experience.  The post is full-time however part-time working will be considered as long as the curriculum can be sufficiently covered.

If you would like to visit the Academy prior to the closing date please contact Lucy Ford, PA to the Headteacher on 01297 32146 to arrange a convenient time. Interview date to be confirmed.

Previous experience or current training in an educational establishment is essential.

This post is subject to an enhanced DBS check. We welcome applications regardless of age, gender, ethnicity or religion.
