Trust Wide Science Lead

Archway Learning TrustNottingham

This post is key to driving up quality as we strive to grow and improve. In the course of the next few months we anticipate that the Trust will grow by almost half. This vacancy has been created to support with this existing growth and to facilitate the raising of standards in this critical core subject area. The post is to oversee standards and expectations in up to four academies across the Trust. 

The Trust Wide Lead has a duty to promote high quality in all aspects of the work of the team by maintaining high standards of achievement and ensuring that all students fulfil their potential through effective teaching and learning, and high expectations. 

Archway Learning Trust, previously Bluecoat Academies Trust was formed in April 2014 as a result of the very long and successful history of Bluecoat Academy. We recently welcomed three further secondary schools in Derby to the Trust and are excited to be opening Bluecoat Trent Academy, a secondary Free School in Nottingham in September 2021.

The Trust comprises of Bluecoat Aspley Academy, Bluecoat Sixth Form, Bluecoat Wollaton Academy, Bluecoat Beechdale Academy, Bluecoat Primary Academy, The Nottingham Emmanuel School and Sixth Form, The Long Eaton School, Lees Brook Community School, Merrill Academy and the Bluecoat SCITT Alliance (School Centred Initial Teacher Training).

The successful candidate will be committed to the students and academy life and will possess the ability to communicate effectively and be able to raise the standards of learning for all of the students that they are required to work with.

The growth and development of our Multi-Academy Trust makes this an excellent opportunity to join us, as we seek to serve a growing number of young people across the region. 

In return, we can offer:

  • Employee benefits and well-being scheme
  • Cycle to work scheme 
  • Teachers’ Pensions 
  • Salary sacrifice bus pass scheme
