We are a forward-thinking Academy based in Weston-super-Mare, providing education to a rising cohort of around 950 students at KS3/KS4 from September. Our pupils are excited to learn, are real ambassadors for our diverse community and benefit from a hugely positive and supportive learning environment. The Academy has retained its ‘Good’ judgement following our recent Ofsted Inspection. The report states that ‘The school is increasingly the school of choice for local parents and carers because leaders have established a culture of learning and high aspiration’.

We have a new £14million building offering a range of outstanding resources and an embedded, highly effective ‘Ready to Learn’ behaviour system meaning students are not disrupted by low level disruption.

We are part of the Cabot Learning Federation (CLF) which is the largest non-diocesan academy group in the South West. The CLF currently sponsors 16 academies including Secondary Schools, Primaries and a studio school catering for students aged 14 to 19.

  • has a genuine passion for Computing;
  • is keen to create something unique and move beyond expectations in learning for life;
  • has the ability to both motivate and inspire every student to achieve beyond their expectations;
  • shares our passion to deliver an outstanding student experience;
  • has the ability to deliver outstanding results;
  • is an excellent communicator;
  • is QTS qualified;
  • will be innovative, creative and flexible in your approach to achieve the best results.

In this role, you will be: 

  • taking responsibility for the learning of allocated groups of students - planning, delivering, facilitating and assessing their learning;
  • taking responsibility for your professional learning and development by taking part in the Academy performance management process and attending INSET and CPD sessions as required;
  • taking responsibility with the support of the College Leader for a learning family, supporting students through academic mentoring and PSHE sessions and contributing to enrichment activities within the Academy.

Come and join our team and enjoy all the support and development you need to achieve your professional goals.

The CLF will provide you with a hugely positive and supportive learning environment; and the opportunity to participate in both Academy and pan-federation professional development from a wide network of high-quality education professionals.
