Welcome from the Principal

Thank you for your interest in our vacancies at the RSA Academy – I hope the following information will be helpful to you in choosing to apply.

The Academy opened its doors in September 2008 and, since then, we have brought about a dramatic change in attitude of the local community due to the commitment demonstrated by our staff, our exceptional facilities, the experiences on offer to our students and the unique network of Fellows and the Academy has to offer. This has led us to be oversubscribed in Year 7 every year since we opened. Our staff are a dedicated and committed team of professionals who help to create a very positive, motivating and supportive culture and ethos within the Academy.

Our mission of “Transforming learning, transforming lives” is something that we are fully committed to, both from a curriculum innovation perspective and also the impact of this in re-energising the community and regeneration of the local area. Everything we do inside the Academy must have impact outside.

We truly believe in the development of the whole child; Academic and competence development through an enriching curriculum both within and beyond the classroom.

The Academy is a professionally challenging and fulfilling place to work. Continual Professional Development and Learning (CPDL) is at the core of what we do, we invest heavily to give our staff the very best learning and development opportunities. Colleagues focus on their own development as fantastic practitioners but also through leadership opportunities both internally and beyond the Academy. We are looking to recruit highly motivated and first- rate practitioners to join us. The flexibilities over responsibilities and areas for development, coupled with our own salary structure and incentives scheme and our focus on meaningful innovation make this an exciting prospect.

Having read through the information pack, should you choose to apply then I look forward to receiving your application and meeting you in due course.
