New Year – New Challenge? Join us!


Are you an exceptional teacher who wants to make a real difference to the lives of vulnerable children?

Are you driven by a sense of moral purpose rather than data?

Do you want to teach small classes in which getting to know the children is a priority and a pleasure?

 If the answer to these questions is yes, then why not come and work for an organisation who truly believes that there is another way?


WELLSPRING Academy Trust:

At Wellspring Academy Trust we believe that every school is unique, because it has a unique history, it serves a unique community context and is full of unique individuals. We value and celebrate the unique identities of our Academies. We encourage them to innovate, create and develop their uniqueness because we want others to learn from them. Excellence is about diversity, not conformity. We do not believe that one size fits all.

Joseph Norton Academy:

At Joseph Norton we believe that every child deserves the best possible education to enable them to make good progress and achieve their full potential. We are child-centred and values-driven. As a team, we want every child to leave us having developed a love of learning and the skills and self-confidence needed to help them succeed in post-school life. We aim to build partnerships with parents, carers and children that are based on honesty, trust and mutual respect with the purpose of supporting the academic, vocational, personal and emotional development of our pupils.

We need team-mates who are highly motivated, with imagination and passion to join us on our journey. Only the very best will do as our children deserve only the best. If you are a great teacher, if you are passionate about improving the life chances of children and have the ability to help them shine both inside and out, please get in touch!

We can offer amazing children; a fun, supportive, hardworking and dedicated team; effective and consistent school systems with supportive leadership; personalised professional development that enables you to reach your career aspirations; committed and challenging governors.

For more information about the school, please see We actively encourage visits and look forward to welcoming you to our site.
