Thank you for your interest in Shirebrook Academy. We are proud of our school and
our students and hope that you too will want to join this incredibly supportive and
dynamic community of learners.

Shirebrook Academy opened its doors to students in September 2010. The Academy
is a forward thinking innovative organisation at the heart of the community. We
moved into purpose built, state of the art buildings in April 2013. In May 2017 we
joined ACET (Aston Community Education Trust), a growing and successful Multi
Academy Trust, which will enable us to continue our development with the support
of a larger organisation.

Shirebrook Academy is at the heart of the Shirebrook community; working to raise
aspirations and to improve the future prosperity and regeneration of the local area.
CPD and developing staff to be future leaders is a key element of our work and
fundamental to our success. Governors are committed to developing the leaders of
the future and we are proud of the high number of staff who have gained
promotion internally and externally.

The website contains further details about the Academy. We are looking for
individuals who care about children as individuals, are motivated by a desire to
open young minds to a world possibility and will bring significant energy to ensuring
our students are motivated and excited by what the future holds for them.

We are proud of our school and would encourage prospective candidates to visit at
any time. Please contact Belinda Norman, Principal’s PA.

We very much hope you decide to submit an application for the vacancies we have.
