"Students first – raising standards and transforming lives”
Are you an enthusiastic and dedicated teacher of Science looking to develop your career in a supportive and innovative Department?
Come and join our outstanding team at Outwood Academy Carlton!
Achieving Academy status in February 2016 as part of the Outwood Grange Academies Trust, Outwood Academy Carlton is going from strength to strength. Based in the attractive village of Carlton, we offer an exceptional education and are enjoying significant improvement across every key measure and in every subject. In January 2019, Ofsted noted that “Leaders at all levels are resolute in their belief that pupils are entitled to the highest quality of education and this is reflected in their actions. Capacity for improvement in the future is strong”.
You can help us take things to the next level.
Outwood Academy Carlton is situated in North East Barnsley and is easily accessible from South and West Yorkshire, with Wakefield, Sheffield, Doncaster, Huddersfield and Pontefract all within commuting distance. We are just 5 miles from the M1.
Outwood Grange Family of Schools is nationally recognised as the highest performing multi-academy trust in the country.
Outcomes for students have improved hugely over the last 3 years across all measures; for example, the proportion of students achieving a grade 4 or better in English and mathematics has risen by over 30% during this period. We are now performing at or above the national average across the board and are one of the top performing schools in Barnsley. Outcomes will continue to improve, with Ofsted stating that “Attainment and progress demonstrate rapid improvement for current pupils”.
We were delighted to receive a ‘good’ judgement in our recent Ofsted inspection. Inspectors recognised that “Staff morale is high” and that “A well-considered programme of professional development ensures that staff continuously improve their skills and knowledge”. We are very proud of the way in which we have transformed the school in every possible way and you can be part of the next stage of our journey.
Outwood Academy Carlton is a wonderful place to work. Everyone associated with the Academy recognises the real buzz of excitement and sense of togetherness. Although the demands and expectations are very high, staff enjoy coming to work, know that they are making a real difference to our young people and fully understand and support our vision of ‘Students first’.
Ofsted praised the behaviour of our students and we pride ourselves on the behaviour of our students, both in lessons and around the site. Critically, the excellent focus and engagement of our students allows teachers to teach and students to succeed.
If you join Outwood Academy Carlton, you will be joining the Outwood Grange Family of Schools and will therefore enjoy so many opportunities, whether you wish to stay in one school or work across the Family of Schools. When you are ready to move up, you will not need to move on. All of our Academies have one common goal: to give children, irrespective of ability or circumstances, the chance to succeed.
We are passionate about recognising the potential of both children and staff, and we do whatever it takes to transform futures.
If you are interested in this role, we invite you to contact David Connolly, Head of Science Department, and (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions, and you would be very welcome to visit, by arrangement, to see lessons and witness the rapid improvement that has already occurred.
