An opportunity to join a new and exciting team at Ocean Academy Poole

Permanent vacancies commencing September 2018.

Ocean Academy Poole is a new three form entry junior academy which opened in September 2015 close to the centre of Poole. It has gained an excellent reputation locally and is already oversubscribed. It currently has Year 3, 4 and 5 pupils and from 2018 will be at full capacity when those pupils reach Year 6. 

Ocean Academy Poole belongs to the Aspirations Academies Trust. We are passionate about excellence in education, giving pupils the very best start in life with a firm belief that excellent teaching transforms lives. Our core belief is that for all students to have high aspirations they must believe in themselves, be actively engaged in their learning and see the connection between what they learn today and who they want to become tomorrow.

All of the schools within our Trust are judged as good or outstanding.

With great students who behave impeccably, an outstanding team of staff, state of the art facilities, and very pleasant locations in beautiful Dorset, our academies offer excellent opportunity for ambitious, talented individuals looking to develop their career. Ofsted have highlighted our Trust’s very effective staff training, support and outstanding CPD.
