Joining The Ebbsfleet Academy

It is a fantastic time to be joining The Ebbsfleet Academy. You would join a hardworking and passionate team of staff, in an academy characterised by high aspirations, academic excellence and exemplary behaviour, in a school that has firm discipline and crystal clear rules (that are enforced) alongside a strong climate of care, encouragement and reward. Our parents are supportive and ambitious for their children, and our reputation in the locale has grown. The academy is an increasingly popular school in the rapidly growing Ebbsfleet Garden City community.

At The Ebbsfleet Academy we believe that a successful and happy place of learning depends on all of us working together. By working together, we can ensure that all students enjoy their time here, make excellent progress and leave us with the necessary skills and attitudes to lead successful and fulfilling lives.

We want our pupils to leave school as well-rounded, confident young people, with an awareness of the wider world, and a desire and ambition to play an active part in it, all of which is encapsulated in The Ebbsfleet Academy’s motto – Aspire, Excel!

We are looking for:

  • Inspiring and motivational teachers who can enthuse and engage students to achieve their full potential
  • Committed individuals who wish to add to the success of the school by implementing their own ideas and strategies and embrace the very best practice in teaching
  • We ask for three things in our teachers - that you love children; that you are conscientious, committed and with a clear moral purpose; and that you are passionate and highly knowledgeable about your subject

In return we offer you:

  • Continuous Professional Growth, a unique approach to appraisal and professional development
  •  Access to coaching and mentoring from within and beyond the Trust
  • A well-qualified, ambitious and caring staff team who are committed to The Ebbsfleet Academy’s future success
  • The support and challenge of an experienced, skilled and dedicated Academy Council
  • Discounted gym/leisure membership
  • Access to free financial and pension advice
  • A comprehensive Employee Assistance Programme and Wellbeing portal.
