About Us & What We're Looking For

  • Are you looking for a school where the students come first and the staff are valued?
  • Do you want to be part of dedicated and a committed team who are passionate about changing lives?
  • Can you make a real difference to the life chances and opportunities of disadvantaged students?

Welcome to Wodensborough.

We are a rapidly improving school and are now full and over-subscribed in Year 7. We are searching for like-minded teachers to join us on our journey. We invest in our staff and value their work and their contribution to raising standards. We are proud to serve our local community and we are proud to be part of the Ormiston Academies Trust, a family of schools who are all committed to being the trust that makes the biggest difference.

We are looking for someone with a passion for teaching & learning in Business Studies/vocational Subjects (i.e. Health & Social Care, Travel & Tourism, Retail) who can support us in achieving our aim of securing excellent outcomes for our students. You will have a passion for working with disadvantaged young people and will want to play a key role in improving outcomes for all learners. There is the potential for the right candidate to secure a pastoral TLR and may be a promotion for an existing pastoral leader/Head of Year.

We currently operate a School System and due to rapidly increasing student numbers, we are seeking to appoint either a Head of School (this could be a promotion opportunity for a existing Head of Year) or a Deputy Head of School, dependent upon experience. Experience or a passion for pastoral leadership is a pre-requisite of this role.

We provide an excellent CPD package for all teachers and can facilitate fast-track career progression as a reward for excellence. Whatever your experience, you will be passionate about teaching and committed to securing successful futures for our students!

You will join a supportive, highly talented and committed team of vocational specialists who consistently achieve excellent outcomes and if you join our pastoral leadership team, you will play an instrumental role in ensuring the personal development and welfare of children. You will also be part of a wider team who are proud to work at Wodensborough and who share an unwavering commitment to changing lives for young people in our local community.

A move to Wodensborough is a move you will not regret. If you believe that children come first and want to feel valued as a professional, please come and see us.

Wodensborough is committed to the safeguarding of children and all staff are expected to ensure that the academy is a safe and secure environment for our students. Candidates will be subject to an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check.
