Thank you for your interest in The Winsford Academy vacancy we have for Deputy Head of English for September 2019.

There has never been a better time to seek employment at The Winsford Academy, as we share a strong, dynamic sponsorship arrangement with the highly regarded and outstanding Fallibroome Multi Academy Trust, based in Macclesfield.  This presents us with great support and excellent opportunities for collaboration, along with an outstanding CPD offer.

In May 2016 the Academy was judged, by Ofsted, to be good for ‘overall effectiveness’ and commended for ‘rapid and sustained improvement’ since incorporation into The Fallibroome Trust in September 2014.  Inspectors were impressed with pupils’ behaviour and pride in their school and commended a ‘culture of improving learning’ which meant that pupils made ‘good progress in their subjects’.  Teachers were commended for their high expectations and for challenging able-pupils to achieve high standards and for the quality of care provided for all pupils.

Our Academy is an 11-­‐16 mixed comprehensive school and we currently have 918 students. Our intake is non-­‐selective and varied, including children from a wide range of homes and backgrounds. We pride ourselves in our inclusive approach but we never compromise on high expectations. 

We are very proud of our Academy and the achievements of our students who demonstrate a diverse range of talents and positive attitudes to learning. Our highly committed staff put the child at the centre of everything they do.  Consequently, the Academy has seen impressive improvements in academic achievement.  

We  expect  the  very  highest  standards  from  our  students  and  our  strong  school  systems  ensure  that students are provided with a safe and friendly environment where teachers teach and learners learn.  Outstanding levels of pastoral care, delivered through our unique House system, and a diverse curriculum offer, ensure equality and opportunity for all.

We are looking for a Deputy Head of English with the drive and experience to ensure that our students make even further progress over the coming years and to improve Progress 8 outcomes of all students.

We would strongly urge you to visit our academy to experience the atmosphere for yourself. We feel confident that you’ll be impressed.

To arrange an informal discussion or tour of the school please contact Lorraine Bogue, HR Officer, on 01606 595916 or email
