Teacher of Art & Textiles (Maternity Cover)

Underpinned by our Christian ethos, at Trinity Academy, we believe each of our students to be uniquely gifted, infinitely precious and morally responsible.  Our goal is that students should gain wisdom, not just knowledge, and we therefore take greater delight in our students’ emerging character than in their grades.  Of course, there is no need to choose between the two; academic excellence is promoted by virtuous character – and character strengthened by the pursuit of excellence.  Our mission, therefore, is to encourage academic, moral and spiritual development within a Christian framework.

We are a vibrant community, with strong and fulfilling relationships between students and their teachers, and a growing co-curricular programme.  Whilst we serve an area of relatively high disadvantage, former students have gone on to become world-class in their field.  Understanding each child to be created in the image of God, we explicitly challenge low expectations and raise aspirations.

Trinity Academy enjoys outstanding accommodation within extensive grounds; good motorway links put us in easy reach of Leeds, Sheffield and Hull.
