‘This is an outstanding school. Teachers have high expectations of their students, who respond by producing excellent work.’ (OFSTED, June 2015)

Do you want to be part of a team where you will help make a difference to the life chances of our students and rapidly accelerate their progress?

We are looking for an exceptional individual to play an important role in our unique and growing Academy. The successful candidate will be an excellent teacher of ‘A’ Level Sociology and/or ‘A’ Level Psychology. These A Level courses are taught in both Year 12 and 13 and are popular courses. The exam boards are currently AQA.

Our Academy is a vibrant and exciting place to work and was graded as outstanding in all areas by Ofsted in June 2015. In 2016, Magna achieved a Progress 8 score of 0.52, placing us well within the top 5% of highest performing schools nationally.

Our systems ensure you can really focus on your core purpose – teaching, in a sustainable way, through:

  • tight, robust and no-nonsense behaviour systems
  • all detentions being centralised, including homework detentions
  • a feedback policy focused on whole class feedback, eliminating the need for hours and hours of marking
  • highly visible and supportive senior leaders
  • no formal graded lesson observations – just ongoing ‘no-stakes’ feedback, helping you to continuously develop
  • excellent ongoing CPD

‘The behaviour of students is outstanding. They are exceptionally keen to learn, and show real enthusiasm in lessons.’ (OFSTED, June 2015)

With great students who behave impeccably, an outstanding team of staff, state of the art facilities, and a very pleasant location in beautiful Dorset, Magna Academy offers an excellent opportunity for an ambitious, talented individual looking to develop their career. Ofsted highlighted our very effective staff training and support and outstanding CPD. We have a very comprehensive, and effective, development programme, bringing all subject areas together every week to share best practice.

‘Students make exceptional progress.’ (OFSTED, June 2015)

As a rapidly growing academy, that will be at full capacity in 2019, and as a newly designated NCTL Teaching School, you would be joining us at a very exciting time and become part of a vibrant learning community that will offer you fantastic opportunities for CPD, career development, future promotions and for you to be able to make your mark.

If you are the type of person who fits with our culture, you will love working here.

We would be delighted to show you around our Academy in order to fully appreciate our excellent learning environment.
