Sandymoor School is a new school in Runcorn, established by local parents in 2012. The school is very popular, with strong community links and it works side by side with its parents to deliver the highest quality educational experience for its pupils. It is also a Microsoft Global Showcase School.

The school is rapidly developing an excellent reputation and as such offers considerable career potential to those who work here. Every year, this sought after school experiences a large increase in its population of pupils and staff as we grow towards our full capacity of 900 pupils. We are currently recruiting for our next stage of growth expected in September.

We are looking for an inspiring, committed and creative individual to join our team.

At a time when nationally there is a shortage of fantastic maths teachers, we are proud to boast that our team is enthusiastic, highly skilled and strong. They would be a pleasure for you to work with as they are dedicated to sharing their love of maths with our pupils and they create a buzz about problem solving within the school. If you want to be part of a team that shares these ideals and uses the best technology to deliver the curriculum, then Sandymoor School is the right place for you.

Working at Sandymoor School requires the ability to adapt well to change due to the unique position we are in as a school. We are constantly growing and developing, leading in the use of technology to deliver a wide and varied curriculum and we exemplify excellent teaching practice. For staff in the school they receive a great deal of job satisfaction from being able to contribute to embedding new systems and structures that support and deliver quality learning, whilst working in a brand new state of the art building, purpose built for 21st Century technological learning. They are all instrumental in the success of the school and are valued as such, regardless of position. We share a commitment to excellence in all we do and all staff take responsibility for their actions.

Applicants must have a strong academic track record and be capable of building good working relationships with staff, students and parents.

Applicants will also need to demonstrate exceptional interpersonal skills, the ability to accept new ideas and a thorough commitment to student learning and achieving their potential, with evidence of high quality professional development and leadership skills. We aim to recruit staff with the vision and determination to ensure all our students receive a first class education and who will rise to the challenge of building on success. You must be able to demonstrate enthusiasm for raising standards, as well as an outstanding effective and inspiring teaching style.

Sandymoor School’s ethos is about removing barriers for children and creating an educational environment in which they flourish. All staff demonstrate the ability to inspire learners and provide the support network for pupils to become strong, independent, successful individuals, who will be confident in the use of the most up to date technology, ready to move into higher education or secure employment.

All staff working at Sandymoor School gain a great deal of job satisfaction through constant opportunities to develop professionally, to secure more responsibility and have their impact on pupils and staff recognised and celebrated. I am an example of this, having joined the school as an Assistant Principal, then becoming Vice Principal and finally Principal. Working at Sandymoor School allows individuals to develop at the rate appropriate for them, which in some cases is faster than a more established institution could accommodate, because of our constant and rapid growth.

The school currently has just under 400 pupils on roll, it is a nearly half of the way through its growth plan. At maximum capacity the school will hold 900 pupils and provide mixed education for 11 to 18 year olds.
