Thank you for your interest in our Head of Geography post.
This is a unique and exciting opportunity for an inspirational and aspirational leader to join Gloucester Academy and further contribute to the life chances of our young people in the school, and across the Trust. The Academy will be on a rapid trajectory of improvement, that will be sustained over many years, it is a chance to be part of something very special. It will support career development and equip you for a further promotion within the Academy and within our trust. We are based in central Gloucester which in itself is in a beautiful area of the country and provides access to the Cotswolds, close proximity to Bristol and Cheltenham. The area we serve is diverse, and therefore our catchment and students offer a range of expectations and challenges, being able to drive ambitions is key.
Gloucester Academy is currently with The White Horse Federation, however, it is proposed that it will transfer to the Greenshaw Learning Trust on 1st June 2020
The Greenshaw Learning Trust is a ‘family’ of like-minded schools, that collaborate to provide mutual support, share their good practice and learn from each other, whilst retaining and developing their own distinctive character.
The Greenshaw Learning Trust website provides a clear picture of our aspirations and our vision for schools within the Trust; however, please do not hesitate to contact us to seek further information.
The Gloucester Academy website will also provide further information on the school.
The vision for Gloucester Academy is simple ‘Every child to climb the mountain to the best University or Profession’. This will be supported through disruption free learning and a clear expectations of working hard and being kind.
Work life balance is central to this vision for our students. We offer a highly visible and supportive SLT, centralised planning and resources, centralised detentions, disruption free learning, whole class feedback through a clear feedback policy, lessons structure based on the Rosenshine principals, visualisers in every classroom, subject experts working together within a collaborative trust, highly bespoke CPD in a short weekly session i.e. Teach Like a Champion foci each session,
We very much look forward to receiving applications from candidates whose personal qualities, values and experiences support and reflect our own.
