Wellspring Academy Trust is a growing Multi-Academy Trust with twenty five Academies and five Free Schools in pre-opening. We are committed to making a difference to the lives and life chances of the young people and the communities we serve.

We are an education charity with Academies in the Primary, Secondary, Special and Alternative Education sectors, working with students with challenging behaviour and Social Emotional and Mental Health needs (SEMH). As such, we work with some of the most challenging young people in the system.

As the Trust continues to grow our roles offer pathways for ambitious and dynamic individuals who are determined to make a difference. We value our people; collegial working at all levels is central to our culture. High quality induction training and ongoing professional development support are guaranteed. There will be a broad range of opportunities for you to realise your professional vision and ambitions within the Trust.

We are interested in hearing from people who:

  • Are creative, imaginative, committed and passionate about learning
  • Can lead and inspire others
  • Have a commitment to working with children and young people with challenging behaviour.

We are looking for an exceptional teacher to join our team. You might be a primary or secondary teacher. All of our children have SEND and you must be passionate and excited about supporting this. If you are passionate about science that would be a bonus!

  • You will be passionate about learning
  • You will be able to demonstrate a track record of impact and success
  • You will be able to communicate your passion to children
  • You will be creative, imaginative, determined, resourceful and adaptable
  • You will be prepared to teach all ages and take on the role of form tutor

The Forest School is an exciting and warm school. The children are exceptional and are supported by a hard-working staff body who want the very best for the children. We have very positive relationships with our parents, a stable and supportive governing body and we are proud partners of Wellspring Academy Trust. Progress for our children is at the heart of what we do and if you are looking for a role where you can make a difference and be valued for your contributions then this is a great place for you to look.
