Archbishop Sentamu Academy is at an exciting time in its development.  An 11-18 academy sponsored by the Diocese of York, we achieved “Good with Outstanding Features” in our OfSTED inspection in 2014, “Outstanding” in our section 48 SIAMS inspection, and have enjoyed four successive years of strongly rising exam results.  In 2013 63% of students gained 5+ A* to C including English and Maths, and 100% achieved 5+ A* to C (up from 29% in 2009). This had led to the academy being in the top 50 most improved schools nationally for two consecutive periods: 2009-2012, and also 2010-2013.  This year, we were also 108th nationally for achievement of students in receipt of the pupil premium.  Equally importantly, we enjoy success in sports and the Performing Arts; our students have won the National Rock Challenge competition twice, and students have taken part in sporting tours in both Spain and Australia.

Archbishop Sentamu Academy (ASA) is the lead academy in the Sentamu Academy Learning Trust (SALT).  The Trust sits at the forefront of the education agenda, bringing together ASA, an Alternative Provision Academy and three primary academies to form a powerful network, transforming education for young people in Hull.




Required for January 2016: Director of Learning Science


Salary: L9 –L13


Archbishop Sentamu Academy is an 11-18 academy in East Hull, judged “good with outstanding features” by Ofsted in February 2014, and the lead academy in the Sentamu Academy Learning Trust, a multi academy trust which comprises ASA itself, ASPIRE AP academy, and 3 local primary academies.


Historically, a large proportion of our students have completed BTec Level 2 Science with great success, with several going onto Post-16 to do a science-related Level 3 BTec, thanks to the unstinting efforts and commitment of a very professional department.  With the advent of new-style BTecs however, we have decided to move to the AQA suite of GCSEs for all students.  A key part of this role will be to ensure that this transition is successful and that student achievement remains as high as it always has been in this area.


To guide us on this journey, we are looking for an experienced and successful science teacher to progress to a substantial and innovative leadership role.

We can offer the opportunity to:

Be part of a successful and high achieving team, always striving to do more

Work with passionate learners within a fabulous learning environment

Access to section leading professional development
