Exceptional school at the heart of Chapeltown.
Modelled on the outstanding Dixons Trinity Academy, Bradford.

Dixons Trinity Chapeltown will open with Year 7 in August 2018; it will grow to full capacity as an all-through school by 2023. The chance to join Dixons Trinity Chapeltown provides an exciting and unique opportunity to work with a talented team in building an outstanding school from its foundation.

We are looking for an exceptional pastoral mentor.

The academy encourages high aspirations, high motivation and high achievement for all. This vision applies equally to students with any kind of special educational need.

Additional support for students is provided under the direction of the Mountain Rescue department.

The Mountain Rescue department is for all students – be they disabled, more able, dyslexic, dyspraxic, with learning or behavioural difficulties, or for students who just need advice and support.

The successful candidate will be:
• an excellent team player
• someone who can demonstrate measurable impact as an individual practitioner and at department level
• focused on building strong professional relationships
• able to motivate and inspire students to achieve their full potential
• aligned to a can-do culture
• committed to the happiness, well-being, self-esteem and progress of everyone at the school
