Head of Year

Mainscale plus 3 ESF points (£7,058)
Full time

We require an enthusiastic graduate with pastoral expertise, also able to teach geography or mathematics.

A visionary and experienced teacher, you will combine a passion for excellence, an understanding of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, and the ability to inspire students with your own example and love of learning.

Trinity Academy is a vibrant community, with strong and fulfilling relationships between students and teachers arising from our Christian ethos. Combining a culture of care with deep passion for raising standards, we go the extra mile every day to transform outcomes for our 1,300 students, aged from 11 to 18. With a knowledge-rich curriculum and an evidence-based approach to teaching, we’re determined to release the full potential of everyone who studies or works here. Our achievements speak for themselves: whilst we serve an area of relatively high deprivation, former students have gone on to become world-class in their field. What’s more, our impressive facilities, extensive grounds and easy motorway links to Leeds, Sheffield and Hull make this the perfect place to build your future.

If you share our core values you can join our closely-knit pastoral team to make your mark at the heart of our school.  Your role as Head of Year will be to ensure that each student in your year group is well cared for and makes personal best academic progress, ensuring that high expectations are met with regards to attendance, behaviour and achievement, and recognising and rewarding accomplishments.  You will be an excellent communicator, able to engage with both students and parents to create an environment for students in which they are able to show respect, maturity and character underpinned by a desire to do hard things.  

In return, we offer exceptional investment in your professional development, enabling you to gain the skills to accelerate your career. You will also enjoy outstanding pastoral support via our membership of Care First Lifestyle, as well as wide-ranging benefits including a daily meal allowance and access to our excellent gym facilities both before and after school.

If you believe you have the vision and commitment to work in an Academy which seeks to raise achievement, setting consistently high standards for yourself and your students, please do contact us.  For further information about Trinity Academy please visit our website:  www.trinity-academy.org.uk
