Our mission is to nurture the gifts and talents of every student and every member of staff and, as such, is a very supportive, special place to work.

You will develop relationships with young people based on respect and trust and using our gospel values to ensure young people reflect on their behaviour in line with our CARE values.  You will lead sessions related to areas such as health, fitness, smoking, drugs, gangs, violence, relationships and bullying.  You will be fully supported by the academy and will work in partnership with teachers and other pastoral staff.
