Are you a newly qualified teacher with a passion for education, looking for your first job? Or are you an experienced teacher, with a track record of success, looking for a new challenge? Washwood Heath Academy has a fantastic opportunity for a talented teacher to join an All-Through Academy business team.

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and dedicated individual who is passionate about business.  Washwood Heath Academy became an All-Through Academy in 2017 for pupils across the age range of 4-18 years. The successful candidate will be joining the Academy at an exciting time; the new state-of-the art primary facility opened in February 2019 and we are currently implementing a Knowledge-rich curriculum to raise academic standards and enrichment opportunities. Washwood Heath is an Academy that embraces evidence-based research and we are currently involved in different research projects including a DFE Key Stage 3 Science Knowledge-rich curriculum project and an EEF Maths Direct Instruction pilot. In addition, the Sixth Form facilities and curriculum are being developed to meet the demand of an increasing student population.

Our students have a thirst for learning and with your ability to develop independence and resilience, we will continue embed outstanding outcomes for every single student.  

Our ideal candidate will be an experienced, outstanding practitioner with a strong commitment to improving pupils’ lives in an Academy with high levels of disadvantage and be able to demonstrate a clear track record of raising standards. A constant thirst for improvement and innovation alongside the determination to see developments through to their conclusions are essential.
