We are looking to recruit a teacher of science and applications are welcome from newly trained or from more experienced colleagues. You will be a motivated, enthusiastic and driven individual who has the skills and determination to make a significant difference to the lives of our students and share our single goal of ‘Students First’.
Just 30 minutes from Sheffield and Doncaster and with good links to both the M1 and A1, Outwood Academy Portland is a thriving learning community for both students and staff. Our staff are dedicated to securing the best possible outcomes for every student and are enormously proud of Ofsted’s Outstanding rating awarded in 2014. The hard work of both students and staff culminated in student progress placing the academy well within the top 5% of schools nationally, with 74% of the entire cohort achieving 2 A*-C GSCE qualifications in science subjects.
We are a warm and welcoming academy, where students are placed at the heart of everything. Behaviour across the academy is impeccable. There is an innovative focus on the development of learning and teaching, along with a wealth of exciting curriculum opportunities to ensure that students reach their full potential.
The academy is part of Outwood Grange Academies Trust, which is nationally recognised as one of the highest performing multi academy trusts in the country. Outwood Academy Portland’s achievements, and transformation under the Trust, have been recognised by the DfE in a recent case study available on their website.
The professional development of staff is a priority for both the academy and the Trust. All staff benefit from 2 hours professional development every week, along with opportunities to access professional courses through the Outwood Institute of Education. Outwood Academy Portland also benefits from being one of 3 Outwood academies within Worksop. Alongside Outwood Academy Valley and Outwood Post 16 Centre, staff at Outwood Academy Portland can choose to access unprecedented opportunities for working across more than one school. Being part of the wider Trust, which also has a number of academies across Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and South Yorkshire, also provides a significant amount of career progression.
We would be delighted to welcome any prospective applicants to come and visit the academy.
