Leeds West Academy


New roles for the 2024/25 academic year 

'Recruitment campaign due to increased student numbers and £5 million-pound academy expansion programme'

Leeds West Academy is extremely excited to be advertising several new roles for the 2024/25 academic year due to the growth of the school.  

Demand for places at Leeds West Academy, a large secondary school in the Rodley and Bramley area of the city, has increased dramatically in recent years due to the success of the school in numerous measures. This includes our Ofsted inspections where the academy was awarded a ‘good’ judgment in 2019 (click here) and again in September 2022 through a monitoring visit (click here) It also includes the performance of our students which has strengthened from year to year. 

Working at Leeds West Academy comes with numerous benefits such as a Staff Wellbeing, Reward and Recognition Framework which underpins a culture of carefully considered workload requirements. There is a plethora of internal and external professional development opportunities, regular staff community activities and opportunities that bring us all together and that reward the efforts of all staff. Additionally, we are proud to offer a large degree of flexibility for each of the roles, including the potential to work part-time with working days to meet the needs of individuals. Furthermore, for colleagues joining the profession through the Early Career Framework (ECF), there is the possibility for an increased starting salary and an earlier start date once Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) has been awarded. 

As well as our dedication to our staff, we are also dedicated to providing the best experiences possible for our students. Expansion work has recently been completed consisting of a £5m project to increase the size of the canteen and adding numerous new and bespoke classrooms. This has increased the capacity of the academy to over 1500 student places, making it one of the biggest academies in the area. As a result of our growth, there is the need for several new roles including teachers of numerous subjects. These vacancies will play a key role in the work to achieve our vision of uniting and inspiring our community through the power of education, opportunity, and inspiration to secure successful futures for the children of the west of Leeds.   

As part of the recruitment process, there is the prospect to attend an online introduction to the academy with a Senior Leader on Monday 5th February at 5.00pm or Wednesday 7th February at 7.30pm. This will involve a presentation of around 15 minutes with the opportunity for questions afterwards.
