We are happy to consider flexible working options and this can be discussed at interview.

The Food department consists of 2 food rooms that are fully equipped to accommodate 20 students in each room.  All students study core Food at KS3 level for 2 lesson per week.  GCSE Food is a popular option with 2 cohorts in each year group studying food at GCSE level (Y9-11). 

Child Development is a popular and successful option choice at KS4. Enthusiasm and a passion for the subject will motivate our students to reach their potential. At KS4 we offer OCR Cambridge Nationals Level 1/2, which runs over 3 years.  Students have 5 lessons per fortnight.

We are about to embark on the next stage of our school development to accommodate growing numbers and add to our well-resourced teaching environment. “Leaders know their school well” our OFSTED inspection recognised (February 2017) and further judged the school to be ‘good’ in all categories. “Staff, pupils and parents fully support the headteacher’s vision and would recommend this school to other parents”. “Pupils have embraced the school’s values and ethos. As a result they behave well in lessons and the school is calm and orderly”. 

We would be pleased to show prospective applicants around the Academy.  Please contact Mrs Jo Mistry, HR Administrator to arrange a tour.  Details of the post are on our website together with an application form.  Please send your application to Mrs Mistry (jmistry@chacademy.co.uk) and include a letter  and CV.
