Job Details

Kates Hill has access to a rich, relevant curriculum which will motivate and prepare pupils for life, providing a high quality, holistic education for all. Our aim is to nurture aspirations, provide a learning environment where children can thrive and to continue building an excellent team to deliver our ambitious targets.

One thing that makes Kates Hill stand out is a focus on core values through a values based education. These can be found throughout everything we do. They help to spread positivity and allow children to make appropriate choices to prepare them for the wider world.

Teaching and Learning is supported by a central team of Subject Directors who are experienced teachers with leadership and mentoring skills who work across our academies supporting teachers in their personal development, data analysis and curriculum planning.  Subject Directors have specific areas of focus such as Mathematics, Science, Reading, Writing and History. 

The Values Driven Expectations behaviour model ensures that all learners are well focussed and that there is no low-level disruption in lessons; this allows colleagues to concentrate on leading high-quality teaching to inspire learners. Cutting edge data management processes also mean that key data is provided from the central team, freeing up time to act on key information to accelerate learners’ progress.

The Trust recognises that our staff are our most valuable asset and investing in our people is a key strategic priority for the Trust. A common and extensive programme of staff development operates across the Trust, this is extended to senior and middle leaders, aspiring leaders, teaching and support staff and non-qualified teachers.

Company

Dudley Academies Trust was formed in September 2017, uniting four secondary schools under the sponsorship of Dudley College of Technology, which is one of the UK’s leading FE colleges and rated ‘Excellent’ by Ofsted. The schools are: Beacon Hill Academy, Pegasus Academy, St James Academy and The Link Academy. The Trust, when combined with the sponsor, annually supports 8,500 young people aged 11 to 19 years old and employs almost 1,300 staff.

The Trust has a strong emphasis on providing the very best educational experience for pupils so they can experience both academic and personal success. It has a strong central team that works across the schools to ensure that our aspirations for them are put into practice. We believe that our investment in people, technology and our estate makes the Trust an attractive employer for anyone who wishes to work in a progressive, environment where achievement is valued.

Our Chief Executive, Jo Higgins, joined us after a career in school leadership in South Yorkshire, where she led Penistone Grammar School for ten years. She also contributed to the borough wide school improvement system in Barnsley and she led the application process for a cross phase MAT of eleven schools.

As a school leader, Jo is motivated by the conviction that all young people should be able to access outstanding provision, irrespective of their starting point in life. As part of her previous work she has driven rapid school improvement, and brings this experience to help strengthen each school's performance.

The vision for Dudley Academies Trust is that our family of schools will be the first choice for young people and parents in north and central Dudley. We will achieve this through:

  • innovative teaching and learning supported by a team of expert practitioners who work across our schools
  • access to the latest available learning technologies
  • a relentless focus on aspiration
  • a rich, broad and varied curriculum, meeting the needs of learners of all abilities
  • providing clear pathways to educational advancement and employment
  • instilling positive values in our learners through a system of Values Driven Expectations that rewards achievement and good behaviour
  • developing a culture in which our staff can contribute, develop and thrive.
