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 aim to develop a curriculum that is responsive to our pupils needs and reflects their diverse interests and backgrounds.
King’s Oak Academy is an 1170 place (Reception – Y11) mixed gender academy situated in Kingswood, South Gloucestershire. The Academy draws its intake primarily from the local Kingswood community. Typically, the prior attainment (KS2 points score) of students on entry to King’s Oak Academy in Year 7 is below the national average. In 2020, the proportion of students who have SEN and/or disabilities is above the national average whilst the proportion of students supported by the pupil premium grant is in line with the national average.
Since 2011 King’s Oak Academy has been part of the Cabot Learning Federation (CLF). The CLF is a collaborative multi-academy trust, whose mission is ‘to consistently deliver excellent educational experiences for pupils aged 3-19, improving their life chances and serving our communities’. After the commissioning of a two-form entry primary phase through South Gloucestershire local authority, King’s Oak Academy changed its status from a secondary academy to an all-through academy in September 2015. This was marked by the completion of our Primary phase building called the Acorn, an open plan building designed to house 420 lower phase pupils. Since 2015, King’s Oak Academy has continued to develop its long-standing secondary provision whilst building up the primary phase each year with a cohort of 60 pupils joining the Academy in Reception each year. By September 2021 the Academy will reach both its centenary year and full all-through status.
The staff team at King’s Oak consists of newly appointed and highly experienced leaders, teachers and support staff. All are driven to deliver exceptional experiences, educational outcomes for young people and the KOA values ‘Work Hard, Be Kind’. Staff take collective responsibility to ensure that during each pupil's time at King’s Oak they develop ambition, passion, a sense of justice, a desire to serve the communities in which they live, an understanding of how to promote safety in themselves and others and a love of learning and development that will be with them all of their lives.
King’s Oak was last inspected in March 2018 and was judged to be ‘Good’. The inspection letter can be seen here. This role offers the opportunity for the successful candidate to build on firm foundations and to use their exceptional skills to enthuse and inspire others in order to allow the academy to make a significant difference by improving the life chances of all pupils that attend the school.
