We believe that every child deserves access to a high quality education in a caring and supportive environment. We actively encourage and challenge our students to have the highest possible aspirations for themselves and for each other.
We know that schools are stronger when they collaborate and work together in partnership, we believe that we are ONE Spencer and support each other through sharing ideas, goals and resources.
We are committed to caring for and safeguarding our community and take seriously our role in delivering an exceptional education for our children and young people, and providing a supportive environment in which to learn and work.
The Spencer Academies Trust is a multi-academy trust with schools across the East Midlands with a strategic focus on Nottingham and Derby. The results obtained in Spencer schools reflect our status as a high-performing regional Trust with a national reputation for excellence.
Our academies are as diverse as the communities they serve, but we have the important things in common. We put children and young people at the heart of all we do. We strive for excellence. We have high expectations of everyone that comes through our doors, and we love nothing more than seeing them succeed.
Delivering a high-quality education starts with a high-quality team of educators. We are always looking for motivated, collaborative people to join our team and offer a competitive suite of employee benefits to ensure that you are supported in your work with us. Our staff are encouraged to continually take on new challenges, so we offer a wide range of professional development resources and opportunities.
