About the Academy & Cabot Learning Federation
The Cabot Learning Federation is a diverse Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) in the South West. We currently sponsor eight secondary academies, nine primary academies, an all through provision, a studio school, a discrete Post 16 provision and an alternative provision which consists of one primary and three secondary phases. CLF is an Equal Opportunity Employer. The trust is proud to serve a diverse student population and their communities. We actively encourage applications from underrepresented groups including ethnicity, gender, transgender, age, disability, sexual orientation or religion. We are proud to be part of a vibrant community and celebrate the richness of cultures, faiths and backgrounds of our students. We aim to develop a curriculum that is responsive to our pupils needs and reflects their diverse interests and backgrounds.
Currently we are very small-scale with just years 7 and 12. The development of the new building, which will open in March 2024, will see us nearing capacity as a split-site, medium-scale 11-19 academy. We celebrate the fact that, as a new provision, our culture, ethos and values are ours to define from the beginning, and we are able to decide what is important to take with us into the future as we grow. Your impact on this process will be central to development of the academy.
Over the next three years, we will embrace the challenges and opportunities of moving into a new site, continuing to build on our excellent recruitment of staff and students, and providing excellent education and opportunities for an emerging community in a rapidly developing area. The nature of our expansion and growth itself provides a unique leadership challenge, and your ability to both drive and adapt to this growth will be key.
