Firth Park Academy is proud to have earned the award for ‘Best Secondary School in Sheffield 2015/16’ (Sheffield Star Best in Education Awards Oct ’15).

  • Rated a ‘Good’ school in every area by Ofsted (June 2015).
  • Proud to have exceeded the National and Sheffield average for Progress 8 achievement.
  • Winners of more Sheffield Children’s University Awards for extra-curricular learning than any other school in our city.
  • A richly diverse community with students speaking more than 30 home languages.
  • A leading school in our trust – Academies Enterprise Trust – the largest trust in the UK with more career development opportunities than any other.

We love to help our students learn and value the staff who help them do so, thanks to:

  • An outstanding ‘Teaching school standard’ professional development programme for staff at all stages of their career.

  • A staff social and sporting committee who promote regular opportunities for well-being and team building.

We are looking for a Deputy Director of Learning in English who really cares about helping our students succeed and is willing to support the development of the English faculty. This role would be a perfect first promotion for an aspirant English teacher and equally a great opportunity for a talented experienced teacher.

  • Put students first - We create differentiated resources that are engaging and student-centred; our innovative lessons inspire our learners to achieve. Our consistently high standards of delivery drive improvements and raise aspirations across both key stages.
  • Supports CPD and career development – We support and challenge each other’s teaching through frequent CPD, team meetings, peer observations and coaching and mentoring for all new staff.
  • Enjoy trust wide benefits – We benefit from regular collaboration with experts from our academy trust to ensure we stay ‘ahead of the game’.
  • Value team spirit and positive working relationships – We support each other through team-teaching and collaborative planning, fostering a positive working environment.
