Thank you for showing an interest in teaching at Weavers Academy.

We aspire to being a school of first choice for our community, a beacon of hope and a provider of not just a ‘good’ education but a ‘world class’ one! We want our staff, students, families and governors to judge Weavers Academy to be an outstanding school. In the last few years we have significantly improved outcomes for our students and the school was judged ‘good’ by Ofsted in May 2017.

We are passionate about the classroom experience. Our teachers put their ‘heart and soul’ into delivering excellence within their own teaching and assessment practice and this has driven learning, progress and personal development. This approach has been a key contributor to our success so far.

  • Creative and full of enthusiasm, able to manifest professional positivity at all times.
  • Committed to regular and ongoing CPD.
  • Open to coaching and mentoring.
  • Constantly striving to improve. 

Successful candidates will join a collaborative and committed staff team that have a vision to succeed through a shared focus on teaching and learning.
