Working for Cathedral Academy
Cathedral Academy is committed to providing students with the best possible education. We want to attract and retain the best staff to work in a committed, passionate and dedicated team.
As an academy we have high expectations. We expect staff to challenge students and themselves. We set high standards and aim to display these in all that we do.
Working for our academy is rewarding. Our CPD programmes are excellent and offer a range of opportunities for progression.
Cathedral Academy is proud to be part of an ambitious Multi-Academy Trust (MAT). As such, our staff work with some of the best practitioners and leaders in the region. We are keen to work hard to share best practice across the MAT in order to benefit as many children and young people as we can.
Proud to be part of Trinity MAT
We have developed a unique and innovative staffing structure that enables us to provide the very best learning experience for our students. It offers career progression, opportunities to develop and a chance to work on projects and developments that benefit the academy and influence the outcomes of the trust as a whole. Each member of our team makes a difference to the success of our young people. All staff, whether teaching or non-teaching have the opportunity to be a Vertical Tutor and take part in our exceptional student support system.
We have invested in professional development and our in-house Lead Teacher team work with all curriculum areas and provide in-house training and development opportunities for all staff. Invaluable weekly CPD sessions are delivered either as a whole academy or tailored by curriculum area.
Cathedral Academy welcomes newly qualified teachers with an extensive, bespoke induction programme. Designed to go above and beyond the statutory requirements, this programme includes mentor support and access to experienced professionals to support your development. Through the MAT-wide network there is ample opportunity to share best practice and develop links with other NQTs. NQTs have weekly sessions with their NQT colleagues and a Lead Teacher who is responsible for their programme of support.
