Brighton Aldridge Community Academy has much to be proud of. £26m of investment offers an inspirational learning environment with state of the art facilities and cutting edge ICT. Since opening as an academy in September 2010 our A*-C GCSE results have risen dramatically from 22% to 41% including English and Maths, making them one of the fastest improving schools in the city. Their recent Ofsted visit recognised the ‘outstanding progress’ we have made in English and that ‘transformation has taken place in behaviour and teaching since the academy opened.’
If you are looking for a school that is on the up, but where there is still plenty of scope to shape the future, this is it.
As an entrepreneurial academy with a sport specialism our message to students is ‘Believe you can’. There has been an unrelenting focus from staff and governors to drive up standards and create a ‘no excuse’ culture where every student is given the opportunity to develop the skills they need to be successful in the future. They have created a truly inclusive learning environment where innovation is encouraged and staff and students alike are inspired to reach their potential.
As their new Principal you will be joining them at a hugely exciting time; leading the academy on the next phase of their development to become a beacon of educational excellence.
A dynamic and inspiring leader, you will bring an extensive track record of driving academic attainment and curriculum innovation as well as proven success in implementing imaginative approaches to teaching and learning. The successful candidate will be a genuine people person with a natural flair for nurturing partnerships and strengthening community relations. Your impressive track record in successful community engagement will be a real asset to BACA as you act as an influential advocate for the academy with local primaries, key stakeholders, and the entire community we serve. You will bring a fresh perspective to student recruitment; driving up admission numbers at year 7 and to their new Sixth Form. In addition as part of the wider family of Aldridge Academies, you will be expected to contribute to pan-Academy initiatives.
BACA recognise this is a big role. In return you will receive the full support of a committed, forward thinking governing body and award-winning sponsor, an exceptionally talented senior leadership team and most importantly, fantastic students.
