    About Brooke Weston Academy and Geography Teacher role

    Brooke Weston Academy is unusual, and exceptional.  We are an innovative and ambitious 11-18 secondary Academy set in the heart of Corby.  We are committed to supporting and challenging our students to reach their full potential, inside and outside of the classroom.  Our school was founded 26 years ago in order to transform the education of young people in the community, and we have.  Yes, we are outstanding, driven by the needs of our students and our core values. We are never complacent and always restless to improve. 

    Our Academy was born out of the need for change, to be different and innovative; we were designed to be a laboratory of learning in an educational area of disadvantage.  We are valued within our community with almost 1000 students applying for the 180 places in year 7 this year. We are proud to be a high performing state comprehensive with a traditional curriculum but one which also highly values the arts, drama, sport and dance. The success of this vision led to the creation of the Brooke Weston Trust and the Northamptonshire Teaching School Hub with a mission to ‘go to the most difficult places and do good’.

This is an exciting opportunity for a committed and motivated professional and would be suitable for the right candidate who wants to work in a leading Academy focussed on ensuring that all students achieve or exceed their potential.  The successful candidate must be willing to teach other subjects within Humanities.
