Ofsted OUTSTANDING – March 2014

Thank you for your interest in the above post at the school.  We demand the very best for our students and therefore only seek to appoint the highest calibre of candidate, who shares our philosophy and vision.

As a school, our focus remains on ensuring each student has appropriate opportunities, curriculum and support to reach their highest potential.  To achieve this, our staff must have the qualifications and professional development in order that they can deliver, as required, to each student.  In this, exciting Learning and Teaching strategies lie at the core of our work, so your professional development is critical to our students’ success.

Currently, we are oversubscribed in the main school and already have over 370 students in our Sixth Form.  This, I believe, shows we have the support of the majority of the community which we serve.

We have a strong partnership with our feeder schools and an excellent transition programme for Year 6 students and their parents.  Our pastoral (vertical) house system ensures the all-round development of each student is central to our work, seeing the education of the ‘whole student’ as key.

To apply, you should use our application form, although you may supply your supporting statement on an individual sheet.  This should include both your philosophy and how your experiences would benefit our students.

We have provided additional documents to help you learn about our school and I am sure you will look at our website and read the other related information available:

  • A Job Description.
  • A Person Specification.
  • Departmental Details.
  • An Application Form.

 

We look forward to receiving your application which will need to arrive at the school by 10 am on Tuesday 5 May 2015 by email to HR@tsasmail.org.uk or by post to the HR Department.

Good luck!

Newsletter – Issue 14 – April 2015.

Drama Students from Year 9 and 10 performed ‘Hamlet’ at The Norwich Playhouse as a part of the StageLit programme which aims to breathe life into Shakespeare’s words.

The cast worked extremely hard to make a performance which was breathtaking in its brilliance.  It was recorded and is being used as a teaching resource by the English department.

Well done to all involved….thus cracks a noble play!
