Richard Rose Central Academy is based in the heart of the beautiful border city of Carlisle on the edge of the Lake District. We provide high quality education to 11-18 year olds from across the City and benefit from a £30m new build.
The high expectations we place on our students and staff, supported by one of the best learning environments in the county, has had a significant impact in terms of improving results. As we continue our journey to becoming an ‘Outstanding’ school, we will accept nothing but the very best from the Central Academy community and make no apologies for the demands we place on our students in terms of behaviour and commitment. Our nurturing and supportive culture ensures the best possible outcomes for all students at all levels. At Central Academy we challenge everyone, every day, to be the best they can be in everything they do.
It is an exciting time to be a member of staff at Central Academy. If you would like to come and visit the school, please get in touch.
We are seeking to recruit a professional and talented Teacher of English on a temporary basis until 31st August 2020.

In a friendly and welcoming school, with supportive colleagues, you'll be able to make a real impact on our academy, and on the lives of children across the country.
There is an open culture in the school where teachers discuss their planning and share resources to meet the needs of pupils more precisely- Ofsted 2017.
We want you to be part of our professional, supportive and friendly team. We have been rated as ‘Good’ by Ofsted which shows that we are an ambitious and rapidly improving Academy.

Richard Rose Central is part of United Learning, a large, and growing, group of schools aiming to offer a life changing education to children and young people across England.
Our schools work as a team and achieve more by sharing than any single school could. Our subject specialists, our Group-wide intranet, our own curriculum and our online learning portal all help us share knowledge and resource, helping to simplify work processes and manage workloads for an improved work-life balance.
As a Group, we can reward our staff better: with good career opportunities, better pay, benefits, and ultimately, the satisfaction of helping children to succeed. We invest in our staff wellbeing. Our academies each have at least eight INSET days per year (with three of those solely dedicated to planning), and an ongoing group-wide wellbeing programme. It's an ethos we call ‘the best in everyone’.
