We are seeking to appoint a teaching assistant to work as part of the English Department to support intervention with students who require additional mentoring to achieve GCSE. The successful applicant will be required to work with individuals and small groups across years 7 to 11 as required. Our staff are dedicated to securing the best possible outcomes for every student and are enormously proud of Ofsted’s Outstanding rating and strive for constant improvement. The hard work of both students and staff culminated in student progress placing the academy well within the top 10% of schools nationally and in 2018 77% of our students achieved Grade 4 or above in English and Maths placing us in the top 10 schools nationally on pupil progress.
