This is an exciting opportunity for a talented colleague to join our vibrant and ambitious school.
Benton Park is a thriving and growing state funded, local authority maintained comprehensive school with over 1550 students – including around 300 in the Sixth Form. We are located in Rawdon, on the outskirts of Leeds City Centre and we work amongst a vibrant and supportive local community. We have recently completed a move into brand new state of the art premises following a successful £28.5 million building project. Our new environment is an excellent place to work and learn and we are committed to our work being supported by the latest technologies in our classrooms.
We are a successful, inclusive school where our students are our greatest asset. We have high standards and expectations which are matched equally with our high aspirations for all members of our school community and we work hard to provide support and investment to enable these to be achieved. We pride ourselves on treating each and every one of our students as an individual and the excellent climate we have created for great learning, success and opportunity enables our students to achieve their full potential.
Our work is underpinned by our five key values: Endeavour, Resilience, Inspiration, Collaboration and Compassion. Our values are aimed at developing young people to be the very best they can be and to equip them with the skills, knowledge and attributes to be confident, rounded and successful members of society.
Our School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our pupils and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Appointments made are subject to an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check. If shortlisted, you will be required to disclose relevant information regarding criminal history and an on-line search will be conducted. This includes only information publicly available on-line.
