Do you want to join an Academy embarking on an exciting new journey under new leadership? Are you looking for career fulfillment and one that is full of opportunity?

At Maltings Academy you will find both. We are looking for staff that thrive in an environment of high expectations; share our ethos that learning comes first and have a desire to make a valued impact on shaping the direction of the Academy.

Our key drivers set out the qualities we expect from both our students and staff:

  • Have PRIDE in our achievements but always strive for more
  • Show RESILIENCE and a willingness to go beyond our comfort zone
  • Demonstrate EMPATHY without prejudice
  • Take RESPONSIBILITY without excuses
  • Able to THINK, EXPLAIN and SOLVE whatever the context

In order to achieve this we believe in four key strands within our curriculum: 

Providing first rate academic qualifications

Students should be pushed, and exposed to a range of subjects, both vocational and academic; ensuring all doors remain open, thus giving our students a platform to compete and thrive.

Exceptional character development

Character that exemplifies: a positive and creative mindset, a positive work ethic, and high levels of resilience, empathy, curiosity and compassion; ensuring students are fully prepared to flourish in an ever changing world. Students take responsibility without excuses and take pride in their achievements.

Strengthening cultural capital

We aim to expose our students to learning beyond the classroom, developing curiosity, compassion and a positive growth mindset, alongside instilling British Values and a strong moral purpose.

Enhancing experiences and creating positive memories

We aim to create opportunities for students to build memories that forge exceptional relationships based on empathy, trust, care, high expectations, mutual respect and a passion for genuinely making a difference in their life.

What people say about us

I started at Maltings Academy in 2012 as an English Instructor and the following year I successfully completed the School Direct program. I was subsequently appointed as an NQT where I was given the opportunity to develop as Head of Key Stage Three. In 2015 I was appointed Second in English which allowed me to progress as a Middle Leader, with the school investing in me further by granting me access to a Middle Leadership course to help with this. Keen to further my passion for teaching and learning, I started my current role of Lead Practitioner in September 2017. Maltings Academy has been a great place for my career to grow with a great network of support, no matter the level you are at in your career.
