The school provides stimulating and innovative opportunities for learning, transforming the aspirations and educational outcomes for all students and the local community. Sharples was judged ‘Good’ at its last inspection in 2013, with areas of outstanding practice. 

Sharples School is looking to appoint a dynamic, committed and enthusiastic teacher to support the transition of our pupils from Year 6 into 7 specialising in English with some mathematics. This an exciting new position which aims to bridge the gap between primary and secondary school to support the progress of Year 7 pupils by giving them a ‘flying start’ to secondary education.
