Sponsored jointly by Sir David Samworth and the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham, the Samworth Church Academy is an 11 – 19, mixed secondary, serving the Mansfield community. A popular school with around 1200 students, our Sixth form numbers have trebled in the last few years, and we have capacity for further growth. We remain wedded to our original aspiration – “no more of the same here.” We want to do things differently.
We believe in preparing children for “70 great years” after leaving the Academy. Achieving high levels of progress and successful exam results are at the heart of our work. This means ensuring our curriculum matches our students. Our Outward Bound beliefs and our unique tie with Gordonstoun and the Round Square Organisation, are indications of the broad education we seek to deliver. Our Christian ethos is also a cornerstone of our work. This encourages our students to acquire a strong moral purpose and become great citizens.
We are ambitious for our academy and our young people. We have the potential to be an outstanding academy on every level and want to appoint a leader with the vision and skills to take us there. This is no ordinary school and our new Principal will be no ordinary individual. You will already have a track record of raising standards and improving outcomes. You may be an experienced Principal or a Deputy ready to step up. Either way you will be inspired by our approach to education. Whilst you do not need to be a practicing Christian, your personal values will need to align with our ethos, moral code and passion, for making a difference through education.
If you feel you have the skills and expertise and are attracted by our approach, then we would be interested in hearing from you. For more information, visit www.pentir.com/tsca.

Closing date: Monday 26th June 2017.
