Welcome from the CEO

Dear prospective staff member,

I am thrilled that you are interested in applying to work in one of our academies. Many Multi-Academy Trusts lay claim to being unique. We have tried to set out in this pack why we think Olympus has some very compelling and distinctive elements as a sponsor, and that our roles really do present exciting and different opportunities.

We think our roles are tremendously exciting ones to perform supported by the expert Olympus team. We are inspired by our academies’ journey and consider it a great privilege to design and develop a 21st century school education. We will be very interested to hear your ideas and aspirations too.

We are ambitious for our academies. We live in a demanding educational landscape that brings with it challenges, but also opportunities. We are excited by the opportunities for talented and inspirational educators to make an impact and create a powerful legacy.

We seek applicants for our roles who can align with our vision and have the talent, drive and determination to deliver that vision successfully. We support all our schools with our leadership and management, school improvement, legal, financial, administrative, admissions, marketing, premises, safeguarding and HR expertise.

If you are as excited as we are and are up for the challenge, do read through our pack to help you decide if we, and our academies, are right for you. I hope we are, and look forward to your application.

We look forward to hearing from you.

With very best wishes,

About The Olympus Academy Trust

About Us

The Olympus Academy Trust is a partnership of schools. The Trust currently comprises ten South Gloucestershire schools; one all-through, four secondary and five primary academies, a University Technical College and a secondary Free School which is yet to be built.

The Trust is responsible and accountable for the education of in excess of 6,500 students between the ages of 4 and 19 and for the employment and support of over 800 staff. We are:

• Non-selective, catering for students of all abilities from 4-19 years.

• Recognised for strong ethos, improving academic performance and wide-ranging extra-curricular provision.

• Situated within the districts of Bradley Stoke, Filton, Patchway, Stoke Gifford, Winterbourne and surrounding areas.

• Providing School Direct initial teacher training for over 20 trainees in partnership with the Cabot Learning Federation.

• Offering a specialist engineering pathway for Olympus students and the wider area.

• Working with the Five Counties Teaching School Hubs Alliance.

Reasons to be part of a Multi-Academy Trust

• Our Trust provides opportunities to be part of a large network of staff who support one another to create innovative teaching and learning in order to provide positive and dynamic learning experiences for the children

• As a Multi-Academy Trust, a group of schools benefits from economies of scale and has greater buying power and increased opportunities for saving money which can then be spent on improving the education for all of the children.

• Schools can share resources and services more effectively to provide consistent and continuous support for our young people in keeping with our ethos and mission.

• The Trust's central team provides wide-ranging support and expertise which frees leaders in schools to focus on well-being and outcomes.

• Greater opportunities for staff development as staff will be able to work collaboratively across the schools, facilitated and supported by the Trust Central Team.

• Changes in Government policy mean schools can be left in a very vulnerable and isolated position. By coming together as part of a Multi-Academy Trust, we are ensuring that we can continue to work in the way which we know works best for our children.

• Each of our schools is proud of its particular strengths and traditions. The Olympus Academy Trust encourages us to preserve and improve these whilst moving forward to provide an excellent education for the foreseeable future.

Benefits to Children

• Shared teaching specialisms, resources, accommodation

• Proximity of schools for learners to be able to collaborate and access a wider range of opportunities

• Access to specialist facilities and specialist subject teachers cross-phase

• Build on links that exist with siblings in different schools within the Trust

• Shared ethos, vision and values

• Commitment to an all-through learning journey, strengthening transition between phases

• Opportunity to contribute ideas for future development and innovation • Economies of scale
