Job Description

Since becoming part of the Ark schools and Sixth Form networks in September 2009, the academy has made rapid improvement year on year.Rated as ‘good’ in our Ofsted inspection (May 2012), observations were made that ‘Teachers are enthusiastic, work hard and have high expectations of students’, and ‘Students make good and accelerating progress’.
