Year Team Leader (Teaching post)
MPS / UPS plus TLR, negotiable for an exceptional candidate
Required for September 2018
The RSA Academy in Tipton (West Midlands) is an oversubscribed and expanding 11-19 school with 1047 students (including Sixth Form). This will rise to 1200 plus sixth form over the next four years. The school has been at the heart of our community since becoming an academy in 2008, and a member of the RSA Family of Academies. The school joined the Central RSA Academies Trust on 1st October 2017.
The Academy was judged to be ‘good’ by Ofsted inspection in July 2016. The school is highly aspirational, boasting fantastic facilities for both students and staff, including a £5 million new build block, to enable expansion that opened in September. Significant changes have been made in the last year to remove barriers to improvement, and the successful candidate will be joining the school at a critical and exciting time and be part of a team to drive things forward.
