Swallow Hill Community College is an 11-16 Academy and proud to be part of Academies Enterprise Trust. We are proud to serve the communities around the inner West of Leeds. We are within easy access from Bradford, Wakefield and Barnsley and only 10 minutes from the M1 motorway.

Our students are at the heart of everything we do and they are challenged and supported to achieve their potential and reach the highest standards. You will find our pupils are engaging, take a pride in their work and are ready to learn – all we need is you!

Our community deserves an outstanding school and we are rapidly working towards achieving this goal. We are looking to appoint to the post of Teacher of Art. Art is a popular and successful subject and benefits from being well resourced.

As the sponsor, AET believes that all young people deserve to become world-class learners – to learn, enjoy, succeed and thrive in a first rate educational environment with the best facilities, the best teaching and the most up-to-date resources available to them. In each of our academies, you will benefit from visionary, inspirational and dynamic leadership and be empowered to develop your own skills with access to world-class CPD and Talent Management programmes.
