Portslade Aldridge Community Academy (PACA) are seeking an exceptional teacher of Science with a passion for igniting a life-long love of learning to lead our excellent team of science teachers and inspire students in the classroom.

This is a key role in the academy, with the successful candidate expected to give clear direction to teaching and learning in Science, be an effective leader for the faculty, be able to demonstrate impact and be committed to collaborative working practices.

PACA was judged ‘good’ by Ofsted in November 2016 and is categorised ‘above average’ in terms of the progress students make. Our results have been consistently improving for over three years and our Progress 8 score (0.3) is now the second highest in the city. Recognised as Brighton’s Most Improved School in the local media in 2017, our KS3 student intake grew over 80% year on year in 2017, and is set for further significant growth in 2018.

Our motto is ‘Unlocking Potential’ and we are committed to unlocking the full potential in our students and staff. With our wonderful new buildings and facilities, an educational transformation is underway.  There has been significant development of the Academy site over recent years with £12.7million being invested in an impressive new state of the art building and fantastic new facilities such as a dance studio, Mac suite, community library, superb sixth form and a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and mathematics) Centre with excellent laboratories. 

PACA has previously won national and regional awards for STEM as well as hosting visits for astronauts and other STEM leaders in their field. 

Further details and an application pack are available from our partnership recruiter Hays Education. Please contact Richard Lanning on 01273 729465 or richard.lanning@hays.com

Informal discussions and visits to the academy are actively encouraged.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people/vulnerable adults and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment
