The Ebbsfleet Academy

Vision: To be an outstanding community academy, whose focus is on learning, as well as on personal and social development, and to be ambitious for all regardless of circumstance.

The candidate will be an enthusiastic team player who is willing to learn new skills in this ever changing environment.

Do you want to transform lives?  Are you ready for a challenge?  Do you want to work in an academy that is fast becoming the number one school of choice in the local community and has improved results by over 30% in three years, with a 5-9 figure in 2017 of 60%, and a good rating by OFSTED in all categories in its first inspection?  Do you want to join a school which thinks marking is futile (but that high quality feedback to pupils is imperative)?  Do you want to work in a culture that judges people on their results and contribution, never their hours in the building or whose car is the last to leave the car park?  Do you want to join a staff team where everyone’s contribution is valued and staff at all levels are involved in decision making and policy change?  Do you believe the devil is in the details and that a no excuses culture transforms lives?  Do you want to join a hardworking and passionate team of staff in an academy characterised by high aspirations, academic excellence and exemplary behaviour?  Do you want to work in a school that has firm discipline and crystal clear rules (that are enforced) alongside a strong current of care, encouragement and reward?  Do you want to be part of a growing trust, the Brook Learning Trust, led by an inspiring CEO, a trust with a clear moral purpose and vision, and one which has at its heart, our values of integrity, respect, courage, optimism, excellence, accountability?

The Ebbsfleet Academy opened in September 2013; we are on a journey to become an over-subscribed school that children walk to, with their friends; where they enjoy coming and a school of which they feel proud.  We are building an ethos that creates a belief that we can all achieve our goals and better our futures.  We are developing independent, resilient and respectful individuals, who are ready to learn for themselves.  We want all our students to achieve the highest qualifications they can, but also to fulfil all their potential, academic and personal, sporting, creative and artistic.  We want our pupils to leave school as well-rounded, confident young people, with an awareness of the wider world, and a desire and ambition to play an active part in it, all of which is encapsulated in the Ebbsfleet Academy’s motto – Aspire and Excel.
