Grace Academy Darlaston, is a vibrant secondary Academy on the outskirts of Walsall rated by Ofsted as 'Good' in May 2017.  We have approximately 800 students on roll across the Academy and are expanding rapidly.  Following a period of under-achievement, our staff have worked exceedingly hard over the last few years which led to a substantial improvement in results in 2016 and further improvements this year. 

The Academy is on an upward journey, if you consider yourself to be a Head of Department capable of helping us along that journey in our humanities department, you are more than welcome to pay us a visit to see our outstanding facilities first hand. 

The ability to teach across all key stages would be an advantage but is not essential.

You will be able to demonstrate unwavering commitment to raising student progress and standards.  Like us, you will believe that social disadvantage is no barrier to achievement and that every student can share in the joy of education.  Most importantly, you will possess integrity, good humour and moral purpose.
