Classroom Teacher Experience in Upper KS2 is desirable
Ofsted May 2017 – “Good in all areas”
An exciting opportunity to join a new school, work with brand new facilities and for you to grasp the opportunity to influence and shape the vision of our Academy. New Horizons Children’s Academy opened in September 2014 with only four classes, we have now grown to deliver a fantastic education to nearly 500 children from the local community and we will be growing until 2020.
Our classrooms are brand new and we have many exciting opportunities for teachers who are keen to develop their career. As part of The Thinking Schools Academy Trust, we benefit from working cohesively as a family of schools for the benefit of our children, and for the adults who work here too. The Trust supports with planning, trips, events, CPD and much more to ensure that all of our teachers are fully supported, enabling them to ensure that they can deliver the best learning that we can offer.
Our mission is to “transform life chances”; at The Thinking Schools Academy Trust, we believe education has the power to change lives and children only have one chance to get this right. To ensure all our academies focus on our mission school leaders translated our mission to core values that would be demonstrated and evident in all our Academies: Child First, Aspire, Challenge, Achieve

You will have QTS and recent experience of working within a Primary setting, preferably with experience in Upper KS2. You will be dedicated to ensure that all of our children achieve their very best, be passionate about teaching and learning and have a positive outlook and interpersonal skills.
