I joined Hall Cross Academy in 2006 as a temporary teacher of History in my second year in the profession.  Initially I was primarily a teacher that taught at KS3, but soon was given the opportunity to teach across the curriculum, including new subjects, for instance, Politics.

Within three years I had been promoted to the position of Assistant Head of Year, Key Stage Leader and then culminating in promotion to the Senior Leadership Team in 2013 with a remit of improving attainment and progress at KS4.

The last 9 years of my career have been extremely diverse, enjoyable and challenging. It has been an absolute pleasure to have been involved in massive changes and improvements that have taken place in a very short space of time.  The most rewarding aspect of everyday is the knowledge that I know I will be working with the fantastic, aspirant and polite young people that attend Hall Cross Academy.

Hall Cross Academy is an extremely supportive employer and has supported me with every aspect of my professional development.  Colleagues are always willing to share expertise and knowledge, something that I continually rely upon given that I am still relatively early on in my career.

I would definitely recommend a career at Hall Cross Academy if you are looking for the following:

  • Do you want to be intellectually challenged every day?
  • Do you want to work in a ‘fully’ diverse comprehensive school?
  • Do you want to work in an environment that seeks to work on a meritocratic basis and reward commitment and a positive work ethic?
  • Do you want to work in a workplace that places our children at the forefront of everything we do?

If your answers are ‘yes’ to the above then I wholeheartedly recommend that you come and join us as we strive to further the life opportunities of our students.
