Date posted:
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: £16,617 - £24,656
Contract term: Permanent

Seckford Education Trust was set up to help local communities to establish and run a number of academies and free schools in Suffolk and East Anglia. The Trust was established by the Seckford Foundation which is a long established charity dedicated to the education and welfare of young people and older people in Suffolk.

In response to local community requests, the Trust opened Beccles Free School and Saxmundham Free School in 2012, and Ixworth Free School in 2014. All three schools are thriving and the number of students choosing to attend has increased steadily since opening. Our schools are designed to provide an excellent, academically-focussed education to students in Years 7-11.

We are now offering direct and tailored routes into teaching for graduates wanting to teach English, mathematics and science.
If you are a graduate, or about to graduate and are looking for school experience before you start teaching, we would really like to hear from you.
We would also consider supporting current teachers (for example PE), who wish to switch specialism.

Our most popular option is to join on a permanent contract in Year 1 as a Cover Supervisor (with full professional development), moving on to SCITT or PGCE in Year 2.

Why join us?

  • As small schools, we provide an inclusive, happy and supportive working environment, with high expectations of staff and students, together with a competitive salary based on skills and experience
  • You will have access to promotion opportunities, and superb professional development across all of our Free Schools
  • Suffolk is a beautiful county, with access to London for the occasional night out or theatre trip. Very close to the coast, with countryside walks and excellent food and drink.
