Why Join Us?

The Woodard Schools Group educates approximately 30,000 pupils a year and employs over 3,000 educational colleagues. We have an unrivalled breadth and knowledge in education across both the private and state sectors. Our academies are part of the Woodard family of schools, which means strong teaching and learning links and opportunities with successful schools across the educational spectrum.

We believe that a good education should be a given; each child should be treated as an individual, given opportunities to flourish and the confidence and tools needed to cope with the demands and responsibilities of adult life. This culture represents an unrivalled teaching environment for you to achieve, develop and inspire.

When you work at any one of our academies you benefit from a structured and comprehensive professional development programme. Your first year in post will be crucial to ensuring your success as a member of staff and to maintaining the ongoing success of our academies. For this purpose a mentoring system is in place to ease you into the structures and systems of any of our academies and give support in your first year with us. Working in a Woodard academy offers real opportunities for staff to improve educational standards for students. There are excellent working conditions for all staff and opportunities for professional development.
