Our academy was opened in September 2013 by the Greenwood Academies Trust (GAT) after a £13.8m capital build. Based on Reeves Way in Peterborough, the academy has quickly grown from strength to strength with the most recent Ofsted inspection in April 2015 judging the academy as “Outstanding”, noting pupil behaviour as “exemplary”. A dedicated team of staff aim to help support every child in reaching their full potential.

We have been awarded Centre of Excellence Status alongside being recognised as an Inclusive School.

In return, the academy, part of the Greenwood Academies Trust, look to support staff in their careers and offer first class CPD and opportunities for career progression. 

This role is for 37 hours a week, Monday to Friday and is required in term time only; therefore this is reflected in the pro rata salary. 

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and we expect all staff to share this commitment and undergo appropriate checks, therefore, all posts within the Trust are subject to an enhanced DBS with Barred List check.

The Trust welcomes applications from all, irrespective of gender, marital status, disability, race, age or sexual orientation.
