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 computing and business studies 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 subject.
We are part of the Inspiration Trust, the top comprehensive schools group for pupil progress to GCSE. 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.
