The School

This is an outstanding school, with exceptional teachers and students. We believe in helping staff and students achieve their personal best and are keen to recruit the very best talent to our school.

We enjoy many advantages at the College. As a National Support School and National Teaching School, we are at the centre of a network that aims to provide the very best professional and career development opportunities. We are also at the centre of an emerging academy chain of secondary and primary schools that share our values and want the very best for their students and staff. Whatever your role or whatever your career plans, we can help you achieve them.

Added to that, we possibly have the best rural location of any secondary school in the country, close enough to the cities of Leeds, Manchester and Sheffield for many of our staff to travel from these areas. Our staff are friendly and supportive of each other and there is a strong sense of a committed team working together.

Our aims

We want to create a mutually supportive family of schools because we believe that, by sharing our expertise and resources, we can improve the quality of education for our children and young people.

Our values

Our central belief is "Valuing People, Supporting Personal Best" and we apply this to everybody in our organisation, staff and children alike. We aim to treat everybody with respect and build positive relationships with each other and we want everybody working in our schools to do the very best they can. We support each other and celebrate our successes together.

The Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of students and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This post is subject to enhanced DBS disclosure.
