Thank you for your interest in a post at Sponne School.
At Sponne, we strive to provide an engaging and reflective school culture based upon five key values and skills; achievement, leadership, collaboration, learning and social responsibility. Each of these contributes to our ethos of 'Inspiring Achievement'.
We are very well blessed with excellent Faculty Learning Leaders (Heads of Faculty) and Progress Learning Leaders (Heads of Year). These colleagues provide excellent professional support for staff throughout the school. The senior team consists of Dr Jamie Clarke our Executive Headteacher, myself, one Deputy Head, five Assistant Headteachers and the School Business Manager. Governors are keen, challenging and very supportive. Our support staff are excellent and they provide a very effective centralised service to both students and staff.
Sponne School exists for its students. We believe our task is to develop the full potential of all our students both inside and outside the classroom. We have a vibrant learning environment that challenges all our students to make good progress and a range of networks within the school to identify needs and personalise the learning experience we offer.
All new staff are made very welcome and given every assistance to settle in at this exciting and vibrant school. Sponne School is part of the Tove Learning Trust and the SWAN Teaching School Alliance. These give all staff access to local curriculum networks and to a wide range of opportunities for continued professional development at all levels. Many of our current staff are involved in the delivery of courses such as the ITP, OTP and NPQSL and there is considerable collaboration with other local secondary schools through the teaching school, both in terms of School to School support and through the GUTP (Grand Union Training Partnership), a well-established and respected ITT provider.
