Atlantic Academy Portland is a new Academy, and has already made great waves in transforming the education of the students in Portland in its first year, leading the way in the highest standards of education. We are looking for somebody to join our amazing journey and be proud of the substantial impact they make to the outcomes and aspirations for our students.

Last year we were the 13th most improved School in the country for progress, moving from a P8 score of -1 (IPACA) to 0.19 as Atlantic. Individual groups of students performed extremely well, SEN students for instance improved from -1.5 (IPACA) to 0.0.1 at Atlantic. We want our students to benefit from the experiences and support that many other students are afforded.

Atlantic Academy Portland is gaining a local and national reputation for rapid sustained improvement, having taken over the previous Academy on Portland. The first year had been about embedding some excellent procedure and normalising excellent behaviour. We are now supporting the already excellent academic progress being made, and sustaining this with further initiatives.

The Academy is located in stunning buildings, having benefited from a £20 million plus full renovation program. It is situated on the beautiful Isle of Portland, at the heart of the Jurassic Coast, in Dorset. Within easy reach of Weymouth, Dorchester, Yeovil, Poole and Bournemouth. This really is an Academy at the very heart of the community.

You would be joining us at a very exciting time and become part of a vibrant learning community.

Our tight, robust and no-nonsense behaviour systems ensure you can really teach. We teach a challenging academic curriculum for all students that will support creativity and innovation. We are driven by a desire, at the core of our mission, to get the best possible results for all of our students, no matter what their starting points or circumstances. 

We would be delighted to show you around our Academy in order to fully appreciate the potential, and unique culture that has been created.
