Our new SLT will give our students new horizons, and your career new impetus.
The new leadership team at Sutton Community Academy will bring real change. 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 ready for plenty of hard work as we remove our Academy from Special Measures and begin the climb all the way to Outstanding.
Our ethos is simple: we owe our pupils nothing less than the best. Most 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.
In return, we offer 38 leadership development pathways to give you the ongoing professional development to become the school leader you’ve always wanted to be. What’s more, your career could take you anywhere within Academy Transformation Trust as the Principal of your own Academy or even a member of our senior leadership team with responsibility for an entire network of schools.
