About the School

On behalf of students and staff of Armthorpe Academy, I would like to thank you for your interest in applying for the post of Assistant Headteacher.

We believe that there has never been a better time to be a part of Armthorpe Academy. All our members of staff are dedicated, innovative, caring and enthusiastic and this results in students who are increasingly independent, ambitious and successful. We set the highest standards and have a “whatever it takes” culture amongst staff and students.

In a time of diminishing academy budgets, the school has maintained high levels of pastoral and support staff to ensure that every student’s needs are met. As a result, our students tell us that they are safe and happy.

As part of the role and your Continuous Professional Development we anticipate you becoming involved in projects throughout the Academy, driving standards and best practice across all aspects of teaching and learning.

Life at Armthorpe is not just about academic learning. As part of Consilium Academy Trust we are determined to surround students with “all things noble”. To this end we are determined to provide our students with a rich variety of opportunities. Each enrichment opportunity enables students to develop transferable life and employability skills such as leadership, independence, team work, resilience and creativity. The range of activities available have recently included various clubs, sports, drama, music and trips, home and abroad, such as university visits, skiing in Europe, a cultural trip to Iceland and a Science visit to NASA. On every occasion our students have been excellent ambassadors for Armthorpe Academy.
