The Academy would like to appoint an enthusiastic and inspirational teacher who can offer an engaging curriculum experience in Music. This is a fantastic opportunity for a teacher who really wants to make a difference to the lives of young people. Our single goal is ‘students first’ and you will be joining a strong team of professionals working to this sole aim. Applications are invited from both newly qualified and experienced professionals.
A commitment to active participation in a busy programme of extra-curricular activities is expected within the Music department which has a tradition of flourishing Choirs, Bands and Instrumental Ensembles supported by a team of ten Instrumental teachers. You will be part of an experienced and supportive team of Expressive Arts teachers who produce an annual musical and numerous concerts within the academy and the wider community.
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 and in 2016 88% of our students achieved A*-C grades in both English and Maths, helping place us in the top 10 schools nationally on pupil progress.
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 benefits from being part of the Outwood Family of Schools, which affords opportunities for staff to work and progress across several schools if desired. We will guarantee every member of staff CPD and a further comprehensive programme of professional development is provided through the teaching school at Outwood Grange Academy.
Visits to the Academy are encouraged and warmly welcomed.
