Thank you for your interest in the Winsford Academy.

There has never been a better time to seek employment at The Winsford Academy, as we share a strong, dynamic sponsorship arrangement with the highly regarded and outstanding Fallibroome Multi Academy Trust, based in Macclesfield.  The school is one of the founding members of the Fallibroome Trust and there are opportunities for development and collaboration across the Trust.

In May 2016 the Academy was judged, by Ofsted, to be good for ‘overall effectiveness’ and commended for ‘rapid and sustained improvement’ since incorporation into The Fallibroome Trust in September 2014.  Inspectors were impressed with pupils’ behaviour and pride in their school and commended a ‘culture of improving learning’ which meant that pupils made ‘good progress in their subjects’.  Teachers were commended for their high expectations and for challenging able pupils to achieve high standards and for the quality of care provided for all pupils.

Our Academy is an 11-16 mixed comprehensive school and we currently have 1050 students. Our intake is non-selective and varied, including children from a wide range of homes and backgrounds. We pride ourselves in our inclusive approach, but we never compromise on high expectations. 

We are very proud of our Academy and the achievements of our students who demonstrate a diverse range of talents and positive attitudes to learning. Our highly committed staff put the child at the centre of everything they do.  Consequently, the Academy has seen impressive improvements in academic achievement.

I expect the very highest standards from our students and our strong school systems ensure that students are provided with a safe and friendly environment where teachers teach and learners learn.  Outstanding levels of pastoral care and a diverse curriculum offer, ensure equality and opportunity for all.

We are looking for a staff with a passion for the subject and the enthusiasm to motivate our learners. You will lead by example, supporting learners to achieve to the best of their ability.

Please have a read through this recruitment website and contact our recruitment partner, Hannah Connell from Hays Education, on 0151 242 5100 / 07966 129 657 or Hannah.connell@hays.com to find out how to apply to the Winsford Academy

About The School

The Winsford Academy is an 11–16 mixed secondary school with academy status in Winsford, Cheshire, England. It was established in September 2010 following the amalgamation of the two predecessor schools; Verdin High School and Woodford Lodge High School. It is located on the campus of the former Verdin High School on Grange Lane that was established in 1970 and was initially one component of a two-campus school, with history spanning from its original founding as Verdin Technical School in 1895.

In September 2013, the Academy moved into a new, £20 million purpose-built school which includes 60 classrooms with flexible learning spaces; a 400-seat theatre in the Performing Arts Centre; Learning Resource Centre; sports facilities; science labs; drama and dance studios; music rehearsal rooms; media suites; art studios; technology workshops; and a Sixth Form Centre (formally). In addition to this, the Academy has spent £1.7 million on ICT.

The Winsford Academy is part of the Fallibroome Multi Academy Trust and this has presented us with great support and excellent opportunities for collaboration.

In May 2016 Ofsted judged The Winsford Academy to be Good for ‘overall effectiveness’ and commended for ‘rapid and sustained improvement.’  Inspectors were impressed with pupils’ behaviour and pride in their school and commended a ‘culture of improving learning’ which meant that pupils made good progress in their subjects.

About The Trust

The Fallibroome Trust was established in 2014 for the moral purpose of supporting school improvement in our family of schools and contributing to the concept of system leadership.

The Trust has grown organically to three secondary and seven primary schools based in Cheshire. All of our schools are judged by Ofsted to be good or outstanding. The Trust operates from its headquarters in Macclesfield, Cheshire where the School improvement and Business Support teams are based.

The Fallibroome Trust is a school-led multi-academy trust which encourages all of its schools to work with a high level of autonomy and keep their own ‘personality’ – always underpinned by strong support from the Trust leadership and the school improvement and business teams.

We educate over 8,000 children and employ 900 teaching and support staff to deliver our vision to ensure every student leaves school with the values, skills, qualities and aptitudes to thrive in society combined with highest possible learning outcomes.

Our schools share two unifying principles: a commitment to the concept of a ‘whole education’ and agreed values of the Trust, respect and optimism.

We are determined to demonstrate that local schools, working together, can create conditions for all our students, no matter what the starting point,  to achieve the combination of knowledge, skills, qualifications and aptitudes that will enable them to thrive in a complex world.

Every student in The Fallibroome Trust, without exception, will leave school with the values, skills, qualities and aptitudes that will enable them to thrive in society; combined with the highest possible learning outcomes and examination results.

Each school will be the school of choice for their local community and the employer of choice for the best professionals.

The Trust has a national reputation for innovation, is driven by moral purpose and shares a commitment to excellence in all that we do.
