Starting May 2018

Thetford Academy is one of Norfolk’s top ten schools for student progress, and we’re looking for an inspiring, innovative, and dedicated teacher of dance and PE to help our pupils do even better.

We serve a busy and growing market town, with a broad academic and vocational curriculum from Year 7 through to sixth form. The right teacher will share our belief that all pupils have the right to succeed and to have access to the very best education. You will be able to enthuse, engage, motivate and challenge pupils in this crucial core subject.

Physical education and sport play a central role in the life of the academy both within the curriculum and as a major aspect of the school’s lively enrichment programmes. We have recently been awarded the Association for Physical Education quality mark. We currently offer dance at Level 2 in Year 10 and 11, and will be offering BTEC dance in Year 12 from September 2018.

Facilities at the academy are excellent. We enjoy a modern, purpose-built campus with a well-equipped sports hall, large grass pitches, four all-weather tennis/netball courts, dance studio, and fitness suite.

As part of the Inspiration Trust, we are in one of the country’s top schools groups for pupil progress at secondary level, and we have exciting plans to develop and strengthen our curriculum across the trust. Our 2014 Ofsted inspection judged the academy to be Good, with Outstanding leadership. Our Progress 8 results in 2017 at GCSE placed the Academy in the top 20% of schools nationally.

Our location close to the A11 makes us easy to reach from Norfolk, Suffolk, and Cambridgeshire. The rich pine forests and heathland of the Brecks are close by to help you relax in your time off, with good connections both to London and to Norfolk’s fabulous beaches and Broads.

We are committed to offering excellent professional opportunities and learning opportunities for our staff, through careful support and personalised CPD. We offer a structured and specific induction programme that has been praised by staff for its support and expertise.
