South Pennine Academies is based in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire. We operate academies and preschools in Kirklees and Oldham in addition to the Huddersfield Horizon SCITT. We have extensive experience of operating educational establishments and taking at least one of these, Moor End Academy, to outstanding and sustaining this. We also have experience of opening Beaumont Primary Academy, a free school, in September 2016

South Pennine Academies has been successful in securing funding from the Department for Education’s second round of Strategic School Improvement Fund bids. Our project was borne out of a common need across participating schools in Oldham and Kirklees to improve outcomes in maths for disadvantaged students.

The title of our bid was:

Diminishing the differences for disadvantaged students in mathematics; developing teachers' and teaching assistants' subject knowledge and pedagogy alongside the strengthening of home­school partnerships. 

As part of the bid, the Trust has committed to employing three full time Maths Fellows who will support the delivery of interventions and raising the profile of maths as a subject and as a career choice with our staff, students and parents.

The project will run until May 2019 but there is potential for one of the post-holders to continue employment beyond this to ensure long-lasting impact beyond the life of the project.

If you like what you read and think you would like to be part of this exciting new project, we look forward to receiving your application.
