Darton Academy are looking to appoint a Teacher of Design & Technology to join our academy in April 2022 on a full-time permanent basis.  


This is an exciting time to join our school. Darton Academy joined Delta Academies Trust in October 2018 and we have started with confidence on the journey towards ‘outstanding’.

All students are valued, regardless of their background or ability. We treat our young people with respect and give them all the opportunity to achieve their potential.  Our goal is for all our students to leave us as happy, well-qualified, confident young adults who go on to excel in the local sixth-forms, colleges, universities, and the wider world. We combine high expectations and high standards with a strong sense of kindness, inclusivity and enjoyment. Our primary focus is to instil a love of learning, and to encourage all students to be respectful, determined, hardworking, confident and ambitious through the Darton mindset of respect, responsibility and resilience. 


You would be joining an academy that places learning at the heart of everything it does and with high quality CPD being available to all staff. If you believe you have the experience, vision and drive required for this role then we would like to hear from you.
