This is a really exciting time to be joining Newcastle Academy following the recent appointment of a new Principal and the strengthening of our Senior Leadership Team. We are introducing new initiatives as we continue our journey of excellence, and we are now looking to appoint a hard-working, inspirational and committed individual for this important strategic role, to support the Senior Team and take delegated responsibility to manage the direction of the Academy.
In addition, you will have responsibility to plan, lead, develop and evaluate work, to enhance quality across the Academy as a whole, and specifically within the Faculty of Maths. As Digital Learner Lead you will take responsibility for the development of digital learning approaches and mechanisms to support assessment, target setting and innovation
The Assistant Principal will be:
• Able to lead change and achieve measurable improvements
• A team motivator – working through people to clear accountability frameworks
• Committed to ensuring that students reach the highest possible standards in their learning and are prepared for further education, employment or training
• An expert practitioner capable of delivering outstanding learning and teaching and of developing other staff to do the same, especially within the Faculty of Maths • Have excellent leadership, management and communication skills and an ambition to drive the school forward as part of the Senior Team
• Committed to the development of joint working in leadership across our Federation and Trust.
Newcastle Academy is a partner in a federation with Clayton Hall Academy under the leadership of United Endeavour Multi Academy Trust. The academies work very closely and are committed to contributing their best practice to help improvement across both settings. Ofsted judged both academies to be ‘good’ at last inspection, but Newcastle Academy has a challenge to improve progress and attainment, since being classed as a ‘coasting school’. Newcastle Academy is supported by committed and hard-working staff across the federation, and the successful candidate will demonstrate a passion to ensure that all students and staff excel. United Endeavour Trust encourages collaboration and support, and we can offer excellent career prospects and personal development opportunities.
United Endeavour Trust and its schools are located in good quality residential suburbs of Newcastle-under-Lyme, near the Cheshire border just west of The Potteries. This central location has excellent road and rail links to all major conurbations and is surrounded by stunning countryside and industrial heritage. House prices are amongst the most competitive in the UK, ranging from traditional terraced town housing and modern estate developments on regenerated sites, to established suburbs and quaint country villages.
