King Alfred’s is one of the largest secondary schools in Oxfordshire with a strong academic history, combining ancient listed buildings with recent capital investment totalling £17 million. The Academy has recently been reorganised from three sites to two sites. This has enabled very significant investment in the two remaining sites. Facilities for students and staff are excellent and include:  A new purpose built Science Building, a new Dining Hall, renovated teaching rooms for Faculties such as Business and Computing, improved leisure facilities, such as a new sports hall and expansion of Sixth Form Centre (due to be complete during 2019).

King Alfred’s is in the heart of the local community and has very strong links across many partners in the locality, and particularly with the primary schools with which we jointly form the Vale Academy Trust (VAT).  We consistently achieve highly at GCSE and A Level, with Business Studies a popular subject to study. We continually seek to improve the educational experience for students and reflect upon the responsibility we have as a local employer. At King Alfred’s we are passionate about learning both within and beyond the classroom; enrichment of educational experience is central to our ethos. We are committed to teacher training, the CPD and career development of our staff; we are a strategic partner within the Oxfordshire Teaching Schools Alliance.

As King Alfred’s is part of the Vale Academy Trust (VAT) we can offer staff the opportunity to rent local accommodation at very competitive rates. If you are interested in this accommodation this can be discussed in more detail at interview.
