Why work for us?

 

Great schools are made of great staff – that is why we strive to recognise hard work and celebrate success. At Isaac Newton Academy our aim is to equip every student with the knowledge, learning power and character necessary for success at university and beyond.  Staff at the school are dedicated to ensuring that every child, regardless of their background, has access to an outstanding education and real choices in life.

 

Why work at Isaac Newton Academy?

At Isaac Newton Academy we believe that all students have the potential to achieve outstanding educational outcomes. This is reflected in how we teach and communicate with students.

 

INA offers a friendly community where everyone is supported to be the best they can be. As a new and growing school, you will play an integral role in the evolution of INA.

 

We work hard to recognise hard work.  From complimentary tea, coffee, biscuits and fruit in the learning rooms to staff football teams, choirs and exercise classes, INA is more than a school, it is a community.  Staff come together for socials each term and every summer there is a staff residential conference.

We'll support you in your role

At Isaac Newton Academy, behaviour is managed effectively. There are clear and strict guidelines about what is expected of our students, which is consistent and easy for both staff and students to follow.  We also have Behaviour Working Parties in the mornings, offering suggestions and new strategies for dealing with any problems.
