At A-level the proportion of students gaining C and above is also higher than the national average. We offer a range of other humanities subjects as part of our sixth form provision which may be of interest to candidates looking to develop their subject specialism.

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.
