Other subjects relating to English also constitute part of our Sixth Form offer, such as creative media and media studies.

• is dynamic, innovative, self-motivated and able to inspire others.
• has the ability to teach outstanding lessons across the age and ability range.
• is committed to raising standards of attainment and developing the success of the department.
• has experience of teaching A-level or would like to develop expertise in this area.
• enjoys working as part of a team and demonstrates reflective practice through the high expectations they have of themselves and the students.

The academy incorporates the successful and growing Lord Nelson Sixth Form College. We are delighted to be part of the Ignite Teaching School Alliance and we have strong links with the University of East Anglia. We are proud to be sponsored by Ormiston Academies Trust and the successful candidate would benefit from the opportunities which arise as a result of this.

This position would be suitable for either a newly qualified teacher or an experienced teacher. We offer an excellent induction package for all new staff, led by a member of the senior leadership team and supported by personal mentors.

If you are interested in being at the leading edge of education, believe that all young people can achieve high standards; we want to hear from you. We would welcome and encourage candidates to visit the Academy to meet the Principal and our outstanding team.

Ormiston Victory Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be required to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service.
