Current Vacancies at The Fermain Academy and within the YES Trust


Headteacher - Axis Academy
Required from: January 2020
Salary: L13 - L17

This vacancy at The Axis Academy is an outstanding opportunity. If successful you will play a key role in setting up a brand new free school to provide successful education to students who need it most. The Axis Academy is to be run by the Youth Engagement Schools Trust, the same Trust that set up the Outstanding Fermain Academy.

We want to build on our reputation of being extremely versatile and developing personalised programmes of study so all achieve. With the doors opening for the first time in September 2020 as a brand new free school, this is a rare opportunity that will give you the chance to help develop an education system that truly focuses on the individual.

The Axis Academy will become a beacon of outstanding practice in SEN delivery specifically focused around supporting students with Metal Heath difficulties and this role will provide an exceptional prospect to help craft the foundations of successful lifelong education.

The school will begin with a cohort of 24 expanding to 40 by year 3. We are looking for someone who will enjoy the challenge of setting up a school, along with the tremendous opportunity to work with an incredibly hard-work central team and trust board.

The newly appointed Headteacher will bring fresh ideas and stimulus to our already successful plans and help develop and form a staff team, maintaining effective systems and procedures.

You, as someone who is a strategic thinker, ambitious and who can use initiative and positivity combined with excellent educational strategies, can make a remarkable impact for every student that accesses The Axis Academy.

If you feel that The Axis Academy may be the right place for you, I hope you will consider applying for the post.

I will be more than happy to have an informal conversation, whether it be a phone call or a face to face meeting to discuss any further questions.
