Closing date:

Weston Favell AcademyNorthampton

Date posted:
Start date: September 2019
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: MPR/UPR
Contract term: Permanent
Suitable for NQTs: Yes

We are looking for a high-quality computing professional that has the highest expectations of themselves and our pupils. 

If you provide high-quality teaching and have a natural enthusiasm for improving the life chances of our children, then this could be the role for you.

About the Role

We wish to recruit someone who shares our vision that, through learning, pupils’ curiosity and imagination will be fired up, allowing them to become questioning individuals who are confidently able to take part in a democratic society. 

We are looking for an innovative teacher who is passionate about PE and about building on pupils’ problem-solving, communication, negotiation, leadership and decision-making skills.

Both NQTs and experienced Teachers are encouraged to apply. This role is suitable for anyone who can offer a second subject; English would be desirable but other subjects will be considered.

About You

We are looking for someone who will:

  • engage and enthuse our learners through a commitment to outstanding teaching and learning;
  • contribute to the further development of a strong and forward-looking team;
  • be innovative in their techniques to motivate and inspire young people;
  • build positive relationships with staff, pupils and parents alike.


We are an improving school and this summer’s GCSE results were the best in our history. In addition, our growing Sixth Form is sending ever-increasing numbers of students onto prestigious universities and high-quality apprenticeships as our results improve. This is the second consecutive year of significant improvement and we are confident this upward trend will continue. We are a supportive team, committed to ensuring that our learners fulfil their potential despite any barriers they may face, and we are looking for equally passionate practitioners to join our team.

It is our goal to equip young people with the qualifications, skills and characteristics that will help them to achieve their aspirations. Our motto, ‘Be Inspired’, is demonstrated throughout our curriculum.  

Located on the outskirts of Northampton, we are situated in a great part of the country. Northampton has a £20 billion economy and sits at the heart of one of four designated Growth Areas in England, with big plans for housing and the economy. With plenty of countryside on the doorstep, it’s surprising that it’s only an hour away from London.
