Further Information

At Carew Academy we take staff wellbeing seriously – healthy and happy staff mean healthy and happy students. If you are considering a new challenge in your career then get in touch to find out what makes Carew different. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds to join our team on the journey to Outstanding.

Carew Academy is a Good school, with an outstanding judgement for Behaviour and Safety, for pupils between the ages of 7 and 18 who have moderate learning difficulties or a diagnosis of ASD. In the short time I have been at Carew I can tell you it is a truly special place. With 215 students we have a unique family ethos and staff are able to get to know every child as an individual, our parents are also incredibly supportive of the school.

To support staff wellbeing we have ‘Wellbeing Wednesdays’. Each half term we have a Wellbeing Wednesday – staff have enjoyed Head Massage, Wine Tasting and a BBQ instead of the regular after school meetings.

Carew has recently had its application to build a brand new school building approved, so this is an exciting time to be joining us with an increasing pupil roll and lots of opportunities for career development within our wider family of Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust.

Our curriculum is really different too – our Lower School students have enrichment activities every afternoon which include Rock Climbing, Swimming, Horse Riding and a huge range of other sports. All our Upper School students take Option Subjects to enrich their learning.  We have also just started delivering A-Level Photography and Art in our Sixth Form.

Further details and how to apply

We strongly encourage visits to the school to get a feel of whether it is the right place for you – get in touch for a confidential discussion and to arrange a visit. Please contact me directly, Rob Watkins (Principal) on 07799547594.

Please note that CV applications will not be considered.

Closing Date:    Thursday 22nd November 2018

Interviews:    Wednesday 28th November 2018

Start Date:     Monday 7th January 2019 (subject to clearance checks)

Carew Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment.  The successful applicant will be subject to an enhanced DBS safeguarding check.

Carew Academy – Let’s show what we can do.

As a community of learners, families and colleagues OHC&AT believes that by working collaboratively, with energy and ambition we can always effect positive change. No limit is placed on what is possible and everyone has the ability to be the very best they can be.
