We are seeking to appoint a passionate and outstanding teacher with excellent inter-personal skills as a Pastoral Leader within our team. Students' personal development, behaviour and welfare is of significant importance to all at TQEA and our recent Ofsted judgement of "outstanding" in this area demonstrates the success achieved. The successful candidate may have previous experience of leading others but this is not essential. We are most interested in finding an exceptional candidate who can further support our journey and add real value to team TQEA.
You will lead by example and be dynamic and inspirational in the classroom and around the school generally, with the ambition to consistently challenge yourself to be the best you can be. You will be relentless in the pursuit of excellence for all our students. Role modelling high expectations to the students of TQEA will support your daily work
We welcome applications from teaching professionals of any subject specialism. Have you got what it takes?
The Queen Elizabeth Academy is an 11-16 mixed academy based in Atherstone with approximately 626 pupils on roll. Following our recent Ofsted inspection in May 2017, we were shown to be "Good with Outstanding features", a real testament to the hard work and dedication of our staff and students.
Our summer examination results were fantastic. Our performance was well above National Averages in all key performance criteria and our Progress 8 score of +0.39 was quite stunning.
In November 2016, as part of the Priority School Building Programme, we moved into brand new premises that have given us access to fantastic new facilities, which really set us apart in the locality.
Our school continues to grow. The Local Authority has asked us to take additional students from September 2019 and as result increased capacity will be added over the coming months to cater for school expansion, with the completion of a new teaching block.
We are a forward thinking school, always looking for areas to develop and improve as well as being very open to new ideas; we feel this is best way to ensure consistent development and attainment of our students.
What we are looking for - the "Golden Thread"
- An individual who is passionate about working in our school.
- An individual who is determined to provide the best educational experience for their students.
- An individual who wants to continually learn.
We are keen to welcome colleagues who share our passion for engaging students in learning and inspiring them to achieve.
Do you want to make a real difference to the lives of our students?
Do you have what it takes to work with a determined leadership team and staff, which promote excellence, and consistently challenge you to improve?
If so, then we welcome you to join our team at The Queen Elizabeth Academy.
