What we value
We are immensely proud to have a long and illustrious history spanning more than 130 years. Six core values underpin everything we do, so that we can continue to deliver excellence with integrity.
We want you to succeed and help others to chase their goals.
Our Group-wide curriculum and ‘Framework for Excellence’ maintain consistently high standards across our schools.
We offer a generous, industry-leading salary, with clear pay policies.
We support your progress with structured career pathways and an extensive Continuing Professional Development programme.
Because our network spans much of England, we also offer opportunities to stay in the Group if you're relocating.
We expect you to take risks that will benefit yourself and others, and have the courage to see them through.
A wide range of training opportunities, supported by excellent tutors and facilities, will help you to keep your skills up to date and your confidence high.
Because we're a Group, we can also offer varied work opportunities that stretch and accelerate your development: opportunities that span children of different ages (primary and secondary) and different situations (such as successful and challenging schools).
We encourage you to turn dreams into reality.
The ‘United Hub’ is our group intranet platform, hosting everything from inspirational lesson plans to discussion forums – reducing your workload, while maintaining high standards.
We respect and support each other to enhance every skill, interest and talent.
Our ‘school clusters’ is our cross-school support network – putting your colleagues on hand at all times, to help, listen, and support you.
We seek out new opportunities to do good and pursue talents and interests.
For example, our ‘Enrichment Team’ organises national activities that state schools don’t traditionally have access to – providing inspiring experiences for pupils, and time away from the classroom for you.
We persevere to overcome obstacles and achieve success.
Through Performance Development Reviews, we can help you to keep your personal and career ambitions on track, and ensure you are appropriately rewarded, no matter what.
