I joined Hall Cross Academy in 2014 as a teacher of Philosophy and Ethics as I was moving into my seventh year of teaching.  Primarily I teach KS4 and 5 Philosophy and Ethics, as well as the core Life curriculum.  This year, I have also been an Academic Tutor for both a Year 12 and Year 13 group.

In my time at Hall Cross, I have gone through UPS 1 and 2, and been promoted to the role of Sixth Form Enrichment Co-ordinator with responsibility for managing the work done in Academic Tutor lessons.  As part of my responsibilities, I support the Wednesday afternoon enrichment activities programme and arrange outside speakers to assist both the Sixth Form curriculum and post 16 life.

I have found the last 2 years incredibly fulfilling and enjoyable.  Our diverse intake means that there is a real cosmopolitan feel around the academy, which makes it an interesting and gratifying place to work.  A school of this size can never stand still, and being involved in the Post 16 changes as well as curriculum changes means that my time at Hall Cross has been rewarding and challenging in equal measure.

The staff at Hall Cross Academy are all extremely supportive and there are plenty of opportunities for professional development.  Whatever stage of career you are at, there is a programme of support and colleagues who are able to offer their advice or knowledge.  Our students are really appreciative of all the efforts that are made to help them achieve their potential.

I would wholeheartedly recommend working here at Hall Cross Academy.
