Be part of something life changing.

For our students and for you.

Are you looking for a new challenge? The leadership team at Sutton Community Academy have brought real change to the Academy and was graded ‘Good’ in all areas by a recent Ofsted inspection. It brings together diverse personalities with a single goal: to release the full potential of every young person and give our students the skills to succeed in life. We all love a challenge and we’re working hard on our journey to Outstanding.

Our ethos is simple: we owe our students nothing less than the best. Many of our students join us from relatively deprived urban backgrounds, and whilst we can’t offer them extensive outside space or world-beating facilities we have a passionate teaching team, a culture of self-belief and achievement and a place at the heart of the local community.

Supporting our visionary Principal, you’ll roll up your sleeves and make things happen, with every opportunity to put your stamp on the way we think. But we’re not just looking for an ideas person: you’ll need to translate your vision into reality and finish whatever you start, delivering concrete change rather than abstract strategies.

In short, you’ll transform the way we deliver both academic and vocational education and you’ll empower our students to overcome barriers to learning. So, we’re looking for a world-class professional: someone our students and staff will respect and admire, and who can take them to the next level. Needless to say, you’ll be an inspiring teacher and middle leader with a proven record of raising attainment and changing cultures. But you’ll be far more than that: you’ll be the key to unlocking our students’ abilities and helping them transcend their circumstances.
