A talented and well-qualified workforce will engage all learners and stakeholders to ensure the academy maintains the highest standards across everything it does. High aspirations and expectations will encompass the life of the school and establish it at the heart of the community it serves.

The academy is now looking to appoint permanent staff to inspire our community and be an integral part of the unique opportunity to build and grow the school from its infancy. There is no doubt that setting up the academy from the very start will take vision, dedication and hard-work, but being part of this exciting and rare journey will be very rewarding to help shape the academy over the next few years.
