Faculty Leader of Humanities 

MPS/UPS TLR 1a (£7,699) 

Required to start January 2018    

Working as part of The GORSE Academies Trust, The Ruth Gorse Academy will ensure that students receive an outstanding education that focuses on aspiration, high expectations and personalisation. Together these non-negotiable values will instil in young people a self-belief that enables students to access the highest standard of higher educational provision and employment. We believe that poverty and deprivation should in no way limit either the quality of a young person’s educational experience or the levels of achievement to which those students are able to rise.  

Due to our expansion of cohort size, we are seeking to appoint a well-qualified, enthusiastic and inspirational Faculty Leader of Humanities to join The Ruth Gorse Academy, ensuring that it becomes a truly outstanding establishment. The successful candidate will be an inspirational teacher who can demonstrate passion and integrity and a strong record of effective practice in leading colleagues.  

This is an important role in the academy’s development and the successful candidate, with support from the leadership team, will play a vital role in the creation and delivery of an exciting Humanities curriculum. This is an exciting opportunity for a candidate who is keen to be at the forefront of our organisational change. The GORSE Academies Trust continues to demonstrate exceptional opportunities for the students within the Trust. Recently, The Ruth Gorse Academy joined Hillcrest Academy, The Morley Academy and The Farnley Academy in being rated as Outstanding in all categories in their inspections.  

The Ruth Gorse Academy is an 11–16, co-educational academy that will continue to grow each year to a maximum cohort of 1250 students in 2020.
