Due to one of our current Academic Coaches making career progress we are looking to appoint a new member to our team. This role will suit a graduate who may be considering moving into teaching in the future. If you are looking to join a friendly and supportive group of people committed to the success of the youngsters they work with, then this is the school for you!

If you are someone who has always wondered whether you would be suited to a career in education this is a fantastic opportunity for you to find out, and gain valuable experience. We are looking for people with the necessary energy and enthusiasm to work in innovative ways with individuals or small groups of identified underachieving pupils at Key stage 3/4, assisting them to fulfil their potential. You will support in the implementation of action plans to overcome barriers to their learning, aiding in their revision and study skills.

Applicants should have achieved at least five or more A*-C grades at GCSE (including English and Maths) with evidence of further qualifications gained at post 16 or the equivalent Level 3 & 4 qualifications.

Holly Lodge is a mixed 11-19 school. Currently it has over 1450 students on roll, but this is increasing steadily due to the rapid improvement that the school has successfully made. The school is part of the ‘building schools for the future’ programme with a new £23.5 million school that completed in September 2011 offering state of the art teaching and learning facilities.

We are a thriving and exciting school, which has made significant progress in recent years. In 2016 the schools key stage 4 results showed progress 8 measures significantly above national. Post 16 results have demonstrated a year on year improvement in both academic and vocational outcomes.

Our latest OFSTED inspection in February 2017 judged that ‘the school continues to be good’. ‘The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school and is fully committed to creating a culture of continuous improvement’.
