The Academy is at an exciting stage of development with an experienced Principal. In Ofsted’s visit, January 2019, the school was judged ‘Good’ in all areas for the first time in the academy’s history.

Quotations from the recent Ofsted visit January 2019:

“Outcomes have improved because of strong subject leadership.”

“The behaviour of pupils is good. There is an atmosphere of mutual trust and respect across the school. Pupils’ conduct is calm and orderly.”

“Staff morale is high. They believe that leaders and governors take staff members’ well-being and workload into account and they feel well supported by the school.”

“Staff new to the school feel very well supported by their more experienced colleagues and the packages of training and support on offer.”

“Comprehensive induction and training programmes offered by senior leaders and the link advisor ensure that they very quickly establish themselves in their posts.”

“Pupils show a well-developed understanding and tolerance for others who are different from them. Tolerance and diversity are promoted well at Aylesbury Vale Academy.”

Consequently, results are now at the national average for the first time in the Academy’s history with a Progress 8 score of 0.20 for results in 2018-19.

The successful applicant will have a passion about learning, have strong interpersonal skills, be resilient, be an excellent teacher and have excellent subject knowledge relative to their experience.

The school is improving at a rapid pace and this is a career-defining opportunity for those who can play a pivotal role in enhancing the life chances of children and young people. The Academy, sponsored by the Diocese of Oxford, moved into new purpose-built accommodation in September 2013 and is benefiting from state of the art facilities and teaching. Situated on the new Berryfields housing development, the Academy (both primary and secondary phase) is set to increase its roll in the new few years. There are currently 1620 students on role including almost 500 in the primary phase.
