Route 39 Academy
Do you have the ability to think outside the box? Do you welcome challenge and innovation? Would you like to join a small, dynamic team of committed teachers and help to shape a growing school? We are looking for colleagues with a track record of achievement who are able to contribute to all aspects of Academy life. Applicants should be able to demonstrate inspirational teaching and be committed to achieving outstanding outcomes for all students.
Route 39 Academy is an 11-18 state ‘free’ school that opened in September 2013. We are in our fifth year and currently have 155 students aged 11-16. We are a new choice for North Devon and take a 21st century approach to learning. We are building a brand new school in Bucks Cross, opening in summer 2018, which will enable us to expand to 700 students, and incorporate a sixth form.
We are seeking to appoint passionate and engaging teachers who are not constrained by the traditional approach to secondary education. People who see connected learning and strong relationships as the key to success and have high aspirations for the young people they work with.
Route 39 Academy has a specialism of personalisation with an extended school day. Science is a core part of both the curriculum and the extended opportunities that our longer school day allows. Science is delivered through Project Based Learning for all students who have their own personal Google Chromebooks. We are currently delivering Science GCSE with our first students sitting in Summer 2018. There will be opportunities to deliver further science based courses at both KS3 and KS4 for the successful applicant. We want our students to make the most of the local environment and see the classroom extending beyond the four walls of the school.
North Devon is well-known for its rugged coastline, stunning views and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Its numerous beaches and surrounding countryside offer perfect opportunities for relaxation and tranquillity, as well as active pursuits such as hiking, cycling, surfing and diving. The area consists of small rural villages, with neighbouring small market and coastal towns. Local employment is mainly in tourism and farming, but there is increasing diversification as more young families move into the area. There is a range of thriving primary schools, and a strong and vibrant local community.
As an equal opportunities employer we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We expect all staff to share this commitment. An enhanced DBS check, proof of qualifications and a medical check will be required of the successful applicant. We aim to attract the best educators to The Route 39 Academy and are committed to support the continuing development of their skills.
