The Academy is continuing to expand and due to its popularity and increasing student numbers, a new £6 million wing was opened in September 2018. This extension is an addition to the £20.6 million state-of-the-art building that was completed September 2012, giving every student the opportunity to learn in an exciting and inspiring environment at an Academy that has been recognised for its high standards of inclusion.

The Academy has continued to build on the successes of the last few years and achieved strong results at GCSE & A-Level in the summer. It is conveniently located close to the Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire & Lincolnshire borders & benefits from excellent road and rail links.

For September 2019, we are seeking to appoint a well-qualified, highly motivated & enthusiastic teacher of Business Studies. This position is suitable for both experienced teachers and would be an excellent first post for a motivated NQT. Therefore, applications are welcomed from both experienced & newly qualified teachers (we offer a full induction programme to NQTs) & visits to the Academy are welcomed.

Ormiston Bushfield Academy is a good school (OFSTED - March 2016) with the recent inspection stating:

• Relationships between pupils and staff are positive and contribute substantially to the calm and productive learning environment
• Pupils are making very good progress

The successful candidate will have the ability to deliver high quality teaching across Key Stage 3, 4 and 5 and have a passion for Business Studies, Enterprise and Work Related Learning. They should be committed to raising outcomes and be innovative in the classroom. We currently offer Business Studies and Economics to our Key Stage 4 students and A-Level Business Studies in KS5.

Therefore the successful candidate will be involved in delivering lessons to KS3 as well as working with local businesses to gather and deliver information about careers to support this.

This is an opportunity to join a dynamic Academy with a strong ethos of teamwork and support, where staff are committed to raising attainment. Business Studies is a key subject in the Academy and an area we are investing in.
