Greenwood Academy is a vibrant, successful 11-18 Academy situated in the heart of Castle Vale on the North East edge of Birmingham.

We intend that all children do better academically and personally than they could have imagined as an 11 year old, to thrive as an adult and have a great life.  The school was judged  ‘Good’ by Ofsted, October 2021. 

You will be highly motivated and passionate about making a difference to the lives of young people with the natural ability to inspire and motivate both pupils and staff.

Our curriculum is designed to foster student progress and uphold high expectations across all ability levels.

We want someone who believes that no student should be held back by their economic background and who is passionate about literature and delivering the very best knowledge to our pupils. 

The ideal candidate will be a collaborative team player dedicated to delivering excellence in classroom practice.

This role requires a commitment to personal and professional development, with a focus on enhancing both subject knowledge and teaching pedagogy, not only for oneself but also for colleagues.
