We have high expectations for all those involved in the education of children. It is important that all students leaving Grace Academy have the qualifications they need in order to follow the path they have chosen; that students do not limit themselves and that staff and parents support them in raising their expectations and aspirations.

We are looking for an enthusiastic, motivated and inspirational individual who want to make a difference to student’s life, to help develop independent and resilient young people who can accomplish their ambitions when leaving the academy. 


Training and development opportunities will be offered. All staff are encouraged to study further and the trust will actively support staff to obtain relevant further qualifications where possible. Tove Learning Trust is a fast moving and exciting place to work.
