Ormiston Denes is a thriving and ambitious academy, rapidly moving towards Ofsted Outstanding. Under new leadership we have just recorded our highest ever student outcomes, increasing the proportion of students gaining English and mathematics by twenty percentage points to 53%, with progress in both subjects well above the national average. As part of Ormiston we place a high value on staff development, both in teaching and leadership, and we are looking for a committed, talented individual to join our team.

We are seeking to appoint a dedicated Raising Achievement Mentor, to work with and inspire our next generation in the final months of their time with us.

In this role you will be working as part of a Raising Achievement Team; led by Head of Year 11 and backed by a supportive SLT, keen to ensure your success. Our aim is for every student to make outstanding progress in every subject that they take. Your part in this will be supporting students with their core subjects and ensuring that students are organised, motivated and equipped with the skills to fully prepare themselves for controlled assessments and examinations. If you are looking to work in education and feel you have the qualities to meet the demands of this highly rewarding position, then we wish to hear from you.

We are looking for a team player who:

• Has a passion for working with young people and is looking for a potential career in education.
• Is patient, self-motivating and wanting to inspire others.
• Has the ability to reflect and learn from others.
• Is strong in either English or mathematics and at least competent in the other.
• Has the highest aspirations for all young people - wanting to see young people succeed.
• Enjoys working as part of a team to ensure the success of students and the academy.
In return Ormiston Denes Academy will offer you:

• A thriving, innovative learning community, committed to excellence.
