We are seeking to appoint a committed, talented and inspirational Head of Faculty for Humanities (History, Geography and Religious Studies) to lead our positive and forward looking team.

The successful candidate will be an excellent classroom practitioner and be enthusiastic about the achievement of students across the Humanities.  Their ability to consistently teach inspirational lessons will be supported by our fit for purpose facilities and resources and excellent training and development opportunities on offer. This post will require the candidate to teach Religious Studies across Key Stages 3 and 4, lead their own subject as well as leading the faculty by example. This vacancy is an excellent opportunity for either an experienced practitioner or for a colleague looking for their first leadership role as there will be the potential to lead aspects whole Academy improvement.

Archway Learning Trust (ALT), previously Bluecoat Academies Trust was formed in April 2014 as a result of the very long and successful history of Bluecoat Academy. The Trust comprises of Bluecoat Aspley Academy, Bluecoat Wollaton Academy, Bluecoat Beechdale Academy and Bluecoat Primary Academy. In January 2018 the Trust welcomed The Nottingham Emmanuel School into our family of schools.

This post is being created as ALT continues to grow.  Following an approach by the Regional Schools Commissioner we are delighted to announce that our family will soon take on two new academies in Grantham; Bluecoat Meres Primary Academy (formerly St John’s) and Bluecoat Meres Academy (formerly St Hugh’s) where the successful candidate would be based. This exciting opportunity comes at a time when ALT is looking to build on its track record of taking Bluecoat Wollaton from good to outstanding and Bluecoat Beechdale from inadequate to good in under three years.  

Our Trust is ambitious for growth but passionate about putting children first in everything that we do.  We care deeply about the futures of every young person who attends an ALT school and believe that every child, no matter what their starting point in life, should have the opportunity to go to a school where they can expect the best possible experience of education. The growth and development of our Multi-Academy Trust makes this an excellent opportunity to join us, as we seek to serve a growing number of young people across the region.
