Why Join Us?
Accrington Academy is a fantastic place to work and develop your teaching career, it is rated as a Good school and well on the way to becoming an Outstanding School. We are looking for the best teachers to join us and to help our strategic aim to be the best!
Message from the Head of School
In May 2018 OFSTED confirmed what we already know, we are a ‘Good’ school and well on our way to ‘Outstanding’.
We set the highest expectations of what can be achieved and are relentless in ensuring students to do their best in every area. As a result, students are proud of their school and display positive attitudes, which is leading to the Academy going from strength to strength.
Whilst we benefit from outstanding facilities (17 million new build, swimming pool and students with I-pads) it is our core aim to support and develop outstanding learning that is at the heart of our school. Our National School of Creativity and Regional Training Centre status highlights our focus on becoming a beacon of learning excellence.
We are looking for colleagues who are focussed on making a real difference to both the life chances of our students and want to be supported to become outstanding professionals.
I offer an open invitation to any colleague who wants to visit the Academy and feel the positive environment in which we continue to go from strength to strength.
Mr J Kerfoot – Headteacher
At Accrington Academy you will find a vibrant, happy and successful environment, delivering the highest standards of education and nurturing individual’s talents and skills.
In May 2018 OFSTED identified that we were a ‘Good’ school. The opportunities you provide support pupils in becoming aspirational, confident and outward looking citezens. – OFSTED
We have developed a culture of “hard work” and “dedication” from our students and staff alike, where high expectations and a desire for success are standard and everyone is proud to belong to Accrington Academy.
Our efforts are paying off. The Sixth Form is in the Top 10% of providers nationally for Level 3 BTECs and top 25% of providers nationally for Alevels for the past three years. Once again I look forward knowing that our students will continue this journey of excellence and we are well on target to surpass these results in summer 2019. At Accrington Academy each individual is supported and challenged to ensure they achieve their personal best.
