Trinity Academy Sowerby Bridge is a new academy which joined the Trinity Multi-Academy Trust in October 2018. Although the academy has recently transferred, the trust has been supporting the academy for over 24 months, working to replicate the success of Trinity Academy Halifax, the flagship school, in improving the outcomes for children and young people.   

The GCSE results in the summer of 2018 and 2019 were a validation of the work we have already undertaken in the academy. The results our students achieved means the academy can now be recognised as one of the most improved schools in the country. However, we are determined not to rest on our laurels and are always looking for ways to better serve our students. 

All of these fantastic and exciting initiatives require the expertise and commitment of dedicated staff and Trinity Academy Sowerby Bridge now wishes to appoint an EAL Engagement Officer. Over the last 12 months we have invested heavily in our pastoral team, which now includes the following positions: 

  • Two Senior Leaders with responsibility for pastoral care  
  • Education Welfare Officer  
  • Lead Attendance Officer 
  • Attendance Officer  
  • Family Intervention Worker 
  • Child Protection Officer 
  • Four House Managers  
  • Two Deputy House Managers 

All the above positions are non-teaching, demonstrating our commitment to dedicate our pastoral staff to pastoral issues.  

Knowledge or experience of working in an educational setting is desirable but not essential; we believe in getting the right people into our organisation. Training specific to an educational setting can be provided as required.    

Our vision is to be the most transformational academy in England. If you would like to be part of our journey we look forward to hearing from you.  

What can we offer you? 

  •  An opportunity to help shape the transformation of Trinity Academy Sowerby Bridge 
  • Full support from a dedicated team of senior leaders and a large pastoral team 
  • Career progression and cross-trust working  
  • A range of staff benefits, including a Cycle to Work scheme, reduced-cost health cover and childcare support 

You must be fully committed to optimising the opportunities that are available to children and young people, secure in the knowledge that you will be joining an ambitious forward-thinking Academy Trust that sets the standards for our family of schools and academies.
