I would like to thank you for exploring employment opportunities with us and hope to welcome you to our academy for a visit soon.
We are an eight-form entry secondary school in Sparkhill, Birmingham which has developed from strength to strength in the last few years. Across this website you can read our latest news, discover our outstanding GCSE results, and learn why we were rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted in 2017 before being featured in the Parliamentary Review 2017/8.
As a member of our school, we offer you opportunities for personal and professional development. We strongly believe that a happy and well supported teacher will be able to deliver the best to those that they teach and meet throughout their day. This puts wellbeing at the forefront of the workday. Our wellbeing room, soup deliveries and other small ever-evolving initiatives are designed to help you be your best. On a Friday afternoon, we encourage all staff to leave early in order to be recuperated before the next week begins.
Professionally, the school is a member of the international Ark family of schools, resulting in continuous opportunities for professional progression. The school not only trains new teachers as part of the ark teacher training programme, all staff members are also invited to ‘Network Days’ where we are able to visit other Ark schools and learn from the diverse and skilled talent within the Ark family. The result is broader exposure and innovative ideas which can be further explored during our inset days.
This family ethos extends to the care and education we provide our students. Our staff members are ambassadors for our virtues curriculum, so we encourage and support them to create a positive work environment in order to be their best selves and model what we expect from our students. We look for your support to deliver our vision of nurturing young people who can reflect, examine and excel as well-rounded, socially and morally conscious individuals with a greater awareness of the world around them.
The culture and ethos of our school, along with the opportunities provided to our staff and students, are a direct result of the most enthusiastic and dedicated staff team. We are blessed to have such a team, who don’t shy away from hard work, who love our children and want them to succeed.
We hope we can welcome you to our family.
