Drama Teacher  


Cathedral Academy has recently joined Trinity Multi-Academy Trust, in February 2018. The flagship academy, Trinity Academy Halifax is a model of excellence for the growing number of academies and free schools joining the trust. The team behind the success at Trinity are working with leaders at Cathedral to replicate their successes in improving the outcomes for children and young people.  

The academy has a new leadership team in place, who have embedded robust, clear systems and support to ensure that teachers can focus on developing their teaching.  Cathedral have been working with Trinity trust since September 2016 and leaders have led improvements through implementing systems, which are based on world class, proven systems and focussed leadership.    

Our results from 2017 demonstrated the impact of this new leadership team and collaborative work with the trust, with improvements in the attainment of six different subject areas including Maths which jumped up by 10%, History improving by 31% and Geography by 17%. These areas added to several other traditionally successful subjects to combine to make progress across the school a major achievement. The subsequent progress 8 score stands at +0.20, showing a vast improvement on the previous year and demonstrating a significant step forward for the academy.  

Aspirations and ambitions are high and the potential is huge.  By joining the trust Cathedral staff will access fantastic opportunities, which require the expertise and commitment of dedicated staff.  Key to our continued improvements is quality of teaching.  Across the trust we invest in the professional development of staff and are able to offer comprehensive, regular CPD opportunities for all staff.  This includes cross-trust working.  

In addition to professional development, we offer career progression and the opportunity to work on a range of innovative projects. As the trust expands and more schools join, there will be development opportunities to accelerate your career progression and build your leadership skills, whilst contributing to the trust’s vision of improving education for all students.  

We are currently looking for a dynamic, passionate and inspirational Drama Teacher, who has excellent subject knowledge and is able to contribute to continued improvements in progress and student attainment.  

This role would suit either a newly qualified teacher who is an excellent practitioner, or an experienced practitioner looking for a new challenge.    

You must be fully committed to optimising the opportunities that are available to children and young people, secure in the knowledge that you will be joining an ambitious forward-thinking Academy Trust that sets the standards for our family of schools and academies.
