Carter Community School is part of United Learning, a large and growing group of schools aiming to offer a life changing education to children and young people across England. Schools within United Learning work as a team and achieve more by sharing than any single school could. By collecting expertise and combining resources, we help to make the tough job of teaching a little easier. With a shared curriculum and lesson plans from around the group available to all, our teachers have strong foundations to lead the engaging, rounded education our children deserve. Our intranet site, United Hub, is just one example of how we share this resource and communicate across sites, helping to simplify processes and manage workloads for an improved work-life balance. We reward our staff: with wide career opportunities – between Primary and Secondary, Academy and Independent – better pay, benefits, and ultimately the satisfaction of helping every child at each of our schools to succeed and reach their full potential.

Our school lies at the heart of its community. As a result of high expectations, enthusiastic teaching and very positive relationships, students enjoy school and want to do well.

If you share our ambition and are an outstanding classroom practitioner, it’s an exciting time to join our school which may present future opportunities particularly with the school being projected to double in size over the next 5 years.

People often say after their first visit to Carter Community School how distinctive the school is, how pioneering we are and yet also how our care and compassion clearly permeates all of our work in all the best ways. Imagine, then, how transformative that environment is for the children who study and grow into adults here. This also applies to our staff, we have a fantastic team and we are all very proud to be working at Carter Community School.

So if you are passionate about student progress and SEND provisions as well as an opportunity to join a dedicated and professional team please apply using one of the routes below.

We encourage you to come and visit the school – please contact Tracy Smith on to arrange a visit.
