The Academy is conveniently located close to the Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire & Lincolnshire borders & benefits from excellent road and rail links.

The subjects are currently a popular option at both GCSE and A-Level and with the recent introduction of film and media at KS3, we aim to expand the subject further. This is an opportunity to join a dynamic Academy with a strong ethos of teamwork & support where staff are committed to raising attainment.

This post offers the opportunity to work with a team of dedicated and enthusiastic staff who successfully deliver Film & Media Studies BTEC, GCSE and A-Level. This summer’s results cement the Academy’s vision of offering the highest possible standards of education; 40% of students achieved A*-A grades in film, 70% A*-C and a 100% pass rate. This performance was also matched at A level with 70% of students achieving A*-B and 100% A*-C. Our students have gone on to study at some of the best universities including, Cambridge, Warwick and UEA.

The Film and Media Department is fully equipped with an Apple Mac editing suite, radio production facilities, digital screening space and a TV studio. All teachers are provided with a Mac laptop and iPad, and each media classroom is equipped with a 3D LED screen. In addition, students in KS4 and KS5 have iPads in order to help improve their digital literacy and enhance their learning experiences.

• An opportunity to join a well-established and successful department;
• An opportunity to join a friendly and supportive staff at this popular oversubscribed Academy; recognised locally and nationally for its continued improvement;
