The Stephen Longfellow Academy is part of The GORSE Academies Trust; a nationally renowned, not-for-profit charity whose drive is to create exceptional schools. The Chief Executive Officer and founder of The Stephen Longfellow Academy, Sir John Townsley, is passionate about providing the highest standard of educational experience for all children, regardless of background, across the age range.  

At the academy we offer both exceptional education and therapy. Students are taught national curriculum subjects and have access to a range of therapeutic services such as counselling. Therapy is delivered as both an integrated part of our timetable but also within discrete groups or on a 1:1 basis. We believe a therapeutic and nurturing approach allows our students to grow in confidence and increase their self-esteem so that they can successfully integrate into their learning environment and the wider community.

By developing personalised learning programmes to meet the needs of vulnerable young people, we want all of our students to have the opportunities similar to those found in large mainstream schools, so that they can leave as confident young adults, ready to seize the opportunities of further education, training or work.

We are looking for an inspirational Attendance Officer to join our Academy.
