We are looking to appoint a dynamic, ambitious Subject Leader of Religious Education, for January 2021, who can lead, inspire and motivate a team of dedicated, passionate teachers to raise standards, improve outcomes for all learners and deliver the TDA core purpose:

“To ensure that each student acquires the necessary knowledge, skills and character to make a positive contribution to society and ‘thrive’ as a global citizen”

The Academy has a great history of success and a bright and exciting future. If you a current Subject Leader seeking a new challenge or looking for your first middle leadership role and if you are an ambitious, dynamic teacher then please download our recruitment pack for more information about the role, the department and instructions on how to apply.  

This is an excellent opportunity and comes at an exciting time for the Academy. From September 2020 we have expanded our curriculum offer and, combined with an additional intake of Year 7 students, this enables us to create more opportunities across the Academy.  

The Thomas Deacon Academy that we know today opened in 2007 as one of the UK’s first and largest academies. Whilst a building does not make a school, it is worth noting that Thomas Deacon Academy was designed by Norman Foster and Partners and in addition to our impressive main academy our beautiful 43-acre campus includes TDA Juniors - a modern, light and purpose-built Key Stage 2 facility - and expansive playing fields and sporting facilities.

Moving forward, our vision for the academy is a simple one: we want every member of our learning community to be the very best that they can be and achieve their full potential.

Our core purpose for the Academy is: “To ensure that each student acquires the necessary knowledge, skills and character to make a positive contribution to society and ‘thrive’ as a global citizen.”

The Academy’s core purpose is supported by our six pillars of character which provide the foundations for our TDA Way. Our character values are: Curiosity, Commitment, Courage, Compassion, Confidence and Courtesy.

In September 2019, TDA received a very positive Ofsted report, judging the academy to be Good overall. Ofsted commented favourably, amongst other things, on the overall leadership of the academy, good teaching, positive relationships between staff and students and students’ behaviour. These aspects of the academy have been maintained alongside the identified areas for development being addressed.

Please note – the Trust may decide to interview suitable candidates prior to the advert closing.

Thomas Deacon Education Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The Academy will require the successful candidate to provide satisfactory references and undertake an Enhanced Check with the Disclosure and Barring Service.
