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

‘Excellent teaching takes places in Maths.’ (OFSTED, June 2015)

High aspirations? Looking for an exciting new challenge? 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.

This position has arisen due to the promotion of the current post holder to Assistant Principal atthe Academy.

Our systems ensure you can really focus on your core purpose – teaching, in a sustainable way. We have tight, robust and no-nonsense behaviour systems, highly visible and supportive senior leaders, 100% centralised detentions and a feedback policy focussed on whole class feedback, eliminating the need for hours and hours of marking.

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

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 Maths, with proven middle leadership experience. This is an excellent opportunity for an ambitious practitioner, who wants to lead the rapidly growing Maths curriculum area and make a real impact on further driving up attainment and progress in Maths.

As a rapidly growing academy, that will be at full capacity in 2018, 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. You would be a member of the extended Senior Leadership Team, be able to study for the NPQML/NPQSL and have excellent progression opportunities to become an Assistant Principal as the Academy, Teaching School and MAT continue to grow. As a Teaching School, you would also have the opportunity to become a Specialist Leader of Education (SLE).

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.

We teach a challenging academic curriculum for all students. We are driven by a desire, at the core of our mission, to get the best possible results for all of our students, no matter what their starting points or circumstances.

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

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