About us

We moved into a brand-new school building in February 2018 which offers spacious, modern and outstanding facilities. Three Rivers Academy is a school that maximises opportunities for young people to develop academically and socially in an environment that is stimulating, caring and supportive. This was recognised in the Ofsted report from May 2019 where the school was judged to be GOOD in every category.

  • The vast majority of full-time teachers have their own classroom
  • Directed time is kept to a minimum with after-school meetings lasting no longer than an hour and all school events calendared in advance

  • Professional opportunities to share and grow within The Howard Partnership Trust with high-quality CPD opportunities at all levels from ECT to SLT
  • School easily accessible via public transport

Working in our school within The Howard Partnership Trust provides a wealth of opportunities to include excellent career progression options. Regardless of your experience or level of responsibility you will have a range of exciting opportunities to ensure you are improving your craft.
