Arden Multi Academy Trust is a family of secondary schools comprising Arden Academy (Knowle), an outstanding academy, Lode Heath School (Solihull) and Park Hall Academy (Castle Bromwich), both good schools. As a Trust, we are looking to appoint a Teacher of Business Studies across the Trust. In the first year this post will be at Arden Academy.
Arden is a truly exceptional school at the heart of the community and the peak of academic excellence. Situated just minutes from Junction 5 of the M42 and only 3 miles from the town of Solihull, visitors are astounded by our confident and articulate pupils. The warmth and trust between teachers and students is exemplary, as is the constant drive to achieve maximum personal and academic potential.
In every way, the Economics and Business Department mirrors the aims and beliefs of the school. All staff work hard, supported by a committed management team, to provide a safe and encouraging environment for learning. Arden pupils love to acquire new knowledge and skills; our teachers relish the opportunity to deliver engaging, challenging lessons to committed pupils.
GCSE Business and BTEC Business are offered as options in the KS4 curriculum and there is a huge uptake for both of these option choices. Outstanding engagement and progress is reflected in the significant number of pupils opting to take Business at A level. Achievement is well above the national average. With enormous pride we watch a significant number of our students leave to study Economics, Management and Business-related degree subjects at Russell Group universities.
Opportunities don’t arise very often to teach at a school like Arden and we are delighted to be offering the chance for someone to join the department. If you would like to be considered for this post, we will need you to facilitate outstanding pupil outcomes across the whole age and ability range. The Academy provides CPD opportunities, childcare vouchers, pension and cycle to work scheme. Few other places offer the chance to simply teach motivated pupils devoted to learning.
Further details are available to download from either the TES website or our school website – www.ardenschool.org.uk. Alternatively you may contact Michele Bull to request details on 01564 773348.

Arden Academy Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all its staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be required to undertake an Enhanced DBS Disclosure.
