E-ACT Royton and Crompton

E-ACT Royton and Crompton Academy is an academy with a bright future. We are under the guidance of a new and experienced Leadership Team and E-Act, who are driving the academy forward and moved into a new building in September 2019.

Come join our team

Quite aside from the opportunity to work with students whose energy, creativity and enthusiasm never fail to inspire, our academy is:

• one that takes great pride in providing ‘a culture that places the individual child at its heart’ and a ‘school community that works together to secure improvement.’ We want every child and staff member to stand out from the crowd and feel proud as part of our exciting journey towards achieving world-class status

• a “high energy” and rewarding place to work and our staff make daily positive impact upon our learners. We have a strong belief that if pupils enjoy learning and are equipped with the tools to succeed, then they will achieve at the highest level.

• Committed to teacher development through E-ACT’s professional learning programme in partnership with leading training providers such as Ambition School Leadership.

• Leading the way in youth mental health through our very own Mental Health First Aid programme – we aim to train every teacher as a mental health first aider.

• Somewhere that places wellbeing central to our work, striving to ensure that children and adults learn in a safe, supported, nurturing environment, where they feel confident, worthy, enthusiastic and valued.

Part of the E-ACT family

We are an E-ACT academy and proud to be part of a community that includes over 18,000 students and 2,300 teaching and non-teaching professionals across the country.

E-ACT multi-academy trust is responsible for 29 academies across the length and breadth of England.

Our academies can collaborate and share ideas with one another in ways that schools may not be able to. Most importantly, we all feel part of something much bigger as our responsibilities go far beyond the four walls of a single academy, and extend to people and their communities across the country.

We are always on the lookout for dynamic, motivated and enthusiastic people so we can continue to give every one of our students the opportunity to explore, solve, create and achieve.

In return we offer the chance to work with amazing people and inspirational students, as well as a great salary and sector-leading work-life balance arrangements.
