Opportunity for dedicated and enthusiastic Careers Leader to join the team at Castle Mead Academy, as part of The Mead Educational Trust.

In August 2019, Castle Mead Academy, a non-selective secondary school, opened its doors and welcomed our first year 7 cohort. Since then, we have never looked back! By 2024, the eight-form entry school will be at capacity with a cohort of 1200 scholars. Building on the success of Rushey Mead Academy, Castle Mead is making available in the heart of Leicester a standard of education matching the very best schools in the country so that every scholar leaves us with high value academic qualifications and wider positive dispositions to enable them to lead fulfilling lives.

The opportunity to work in a growing school, is like no other. When you start a school from scratch like we have, it is a golden opportunity to build something from the ground up and consider all of the ideas from different schools and sectors – but in one place, here in Leicester! As we now progress our next chapter, join us and help to build a genuine legacy of your own, alongside colleagues who are aligned in their values.

We are recruiting a team of like-minded experts to help realise our vision and “Grow a Community of Excellence.” This is a rare opportunity, so as we challenge convention, lead without preconception and are unapologetically ambitious on behalf of our scholars.

This is an exciting opportunity for a person who is:

  • proactive, skilful and has an eye for detail;
  • willing to learn and work as part of our team;
  • going to contribute to the ethos our school in our new £30m building, on the picturesque riverside!

If you are ambitious, persistent and open-minded, with a genuine passion for learning and young people, then we want to hear from you. This is a unique opportunity to work in a school where:

  • our scholars are courteous, well-mannered and charming;
  • the staff team are relentless in their ambition on behalf of pupils and colleagues;
  • there is a growing reputation of Castle Mead providing excellence in the heart of Leicester.

Yes, we seek someone who has a genuine moral purpose and belief that everyone is capable of excellence. We seek a colleague to join us to bring a no excuses approach, to ensure every child has the very best offer that they deserve.

We know that carefully considering the way we do things and how this impacts on our school culture is of paramount importance.

To apply, please submit your application by Monday 27th June.
