Trinity Academy Sowerby Bridge is a new academy within Trinity Multi-Academy Trust, which joined the trust in October 2018. Although the academy has recently transferred, the trust have been supporting the academy for over 12 months to ensure the team behind the success of the flagship school, Trinity Academy Halifax, work to replicate their successes in improving the outcomes for children and young people.  

The GCSE results in the summer of 2018 were a validation of the work which we have already undertaken in the academy. We have improved our Progress 8 outcome by +0.92 in our first year in the trust (from -0.47 in 2017 to +0.45 in 2018). The results our students obtained means the academy can now be recognised as one of the most improved schools in the country. However, we are determined not to rest on our laurels and are always looking for ways to better serve our students.

All of these fantastic and exciting initiatives require the expertise and commitment of dedicated staff and Trinity Academy Sowerby Bridge is currently looking to appoint Teaching Assistants. The teaching and learning support provided by the Learning Support team is crucial to the success of some of our most vulnerable students. Working under the direction of a classroom teacher you will provide classroom based support to a range of students, including those with Special Educational Needs.

Knowledge or experience of working in an educational setting is desirable but not essential, and you will also possess the skills to work within a small team.  

What can we offer you?

• An opportunity to be involved in the transformation of Trinity Academy Sowerby Bridge 

• Full support from a dedicated team of senior leaders and a large pastoral team

• Career progression and cross-trust working 

• A range of staff benefits, including a Cycle to Work scheme, reduced cost health cover and childcare support.

You must be fully committed to optimising the opportunities that are available to children and young people, secure in the knowledge that you will be joining an ambitious forward-thinking Academy Trust that sets the standards for our family of schools and academies.
