Sharnbrook Academy is located in attractive rural surroundings and provides excellent opportunities for young people. Our students engage fantastically in lessons, and their behaviour for learning is exemplary and reflected in their achievements. Our education teams are committed, motivated and welcoming, and proud to be part of a consistently high achieving school that fully supports its staff.
In addition, Sharnbrook Academy is part of the very successful Sharnbrook Academy Federation (SAF). This is a multi-academy trust made up of five excellent member academies, which has a commitment to excellence in education and puts student progress at the heart of all it does. SAF has an outstanding reputation and provides a strong support network and a variety of opportunities for staff in each of its academies.
We are offering an exciting opportunity for a talented business teacher to join an extremely successful business department, which is one of the largest of its kind in the country. The department currently offers courses at GCSE, A Level and Levels 2 and 3 in BTEC, covering a variety of subject areas including business, economics, enterprise and accounting.
We are a high-achieving department where excellent teachers are valued and can make a real difference teaching motivated and ambitious students. Many of our students go on to obtain professional accountancy apprenticeships with Grant Thornton, Deloitte and PwC, and others take up places at top UK universities including the London School of Economics, Warwick and Manchester.
This academic year we become a Peter Jones Academy and now have over 100 students at GCSE, BTEC and A Level, setting up and running their own businesses. Students have already presented to the Dragons in school, constructed their Business Plans and Cash Budgets, arranged marketing and a social media presence, having identified through primary research, their target market and prime selling locations. We keenly await their financial statements and review of their performance.
Please be advised, the ability to contribute to the department’s teaching of economics and/or accounting would be an advantage.
We can offer:
- the opportunity to join a highly successful school and multi-academy trust;
- a stimulating and creative working environment where extracurricular activities flourish;
- an exceptional CPD provision tailored to your needs, including a well-developed NQT programme, where applicable;
- career/secondment opportunities within our MAT schools;
- A subsidised on-site gym membership.
We encourage enthusiastic and motivational candidates who share a genuine passion to the post to apply.
