About The Halifax Academy
The Halifax Academy is a high performing 4-16 all-through Academy in Calderdale, West Yorkshire. It was inspected by Ofsted in September 2017 being judged as good in all areas. Outcomes are outstanding at KS4 and place the academy in the top 15% of all schools nationally with regard to progress. Early Years Provision is good.
The Halifax Academy is a founding member of Impact Education Multi Academy Trust. Established in 2016, Impact is a values driven organisation with a belief that working collaboratively and sharing ideas can achieve real impact on the education and life chances of children and young people.
Our staff and trustees are unwaveringly ambitious for students, our families, our community and our staff. Our purpose is very clear; we are on a mission to improve social mobility for the disadvantaged and the life chances of children and young people.
The academy invests in its people, retaining prestigious Investors in People ‘Gold Standard' for the last five years. This recognises our commitment to creating a workplace where staff feel valued, share a strong sense of purpose and where their talents and hard work are celebrated. Staff are surrounded by highly supportive teams, systems and structures.
We expect a great deal from our staff but in turn we reward high levels of commitment. Every member of our teaching staff is involved in our ‘Coaching for Excellence’ programme; a reflective scheme whereby staff work in trios to focus on improving teaching and learning in all subjects. High quality teaching and learning together with outstanding outcomes are central to our school improvement agenda.
The Halifax Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. DBS checks are required for all relevant posts.
