 The Trust is passionate about building brighter futures for the young people who attend its schools, and is a rapidly growing and successful Multi Academy Trust driven by a set of compelling values:

  1. Learners First – young people, staff, leaders, governors and trustees totally focused upon the educational benefit of our learners within a safe and supportive environment
  2. It’s about learning – young people, staff, leaders, governors and trustees totally focused upon developing and improving learning underpinned by harmonious and trusting relationships
  3. No Barriers –   no excuses, only support to ensure young people, staff, leaders, governors and trustees maximise the academic achievement of learners whilst enabling them to develop and flourish as well rounded individuals

We believe in building a role around a candidates skills so they can thrive and make a real difference to our students. Talk to us about what you are great at, passionate about, or want to develop and we will see if it aligns with our needs.

This is an ideal opportunity for an ambitious and proven classroom practitioner who may be interested in making a step towards middle or senior leadership. Equally a teacher new to the profession will thrive in our challenging but highly supportive environment or a role could be built around an outstanding, committed and motivated teacher to lead the development of teaching and learning.

This is an exciting time to join Barr’s Hill School and the Futures Trust; the school is on a rapid improvement journey with clear values and a vision for exceptional learning. In 2019 we achieved best pupil progress results in Coventry (non-selective) and top 3% nationally.

An ambitious and innovative teacher will thrive in this environment and will be offered plentiful opportunity for further progression and to effect real change to make a difference to students and the school. We seek an energetic hard working individual with an ability to motivate and inspire young people and staff around them. We are committed to the continuing professional development of all our staff. The school fully funds masters courses for colleagues interested and offers a range of high quality leadership development programmes and opportunities.

Barr’s Hill is an 11-18 inner city school in the heart of Coventry. Our diverse student population is one of the many strengths of the school.  At Barr’s Hill School everything we do is focused on students and learning.  Our results last summer were the most improved in Coventry and Ofsted judged us good in September.  We are looking for highly motivated colleagues to take us to the next stage.  This is a unique opportunity to work on school improvement focused on learning.  The school has been stabilised and repaired.  Now we need to transform.

What makes us a good employer?

In addition to opportunities for professional development the Trust offers attractive reward and benefits packages including competitive rates of pay, access to the Local Government Pension Scheme, online discount at retail, travel, theme park and other leisure providers, policies to support family and carer commitments, Occupational Health services and career pathways across the Trust.
