Working for Trinity Academy Grammar

Trinity Academy Grammar (TAG) is committed to providing students with the best possible education.  We want to attract and retain the best staff to work in a committed, passionate and dedicated team.

Leaders have ensured that all staff have the knowledge, training and support so that all pupils have the chance to succeed. Teaching staff have strong subject knowledge and give clear explanations. Teaching assistants and wider pastoral staff work closely with teachers to ensure that all pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), receive the help and support they need.

As an academy we have high expectations. We expect staff to challenge students and themselves. We set high standards and aim to display these in all that we do. Working for our academy is rewarding. Our CPD programmes are excellent and offer a range of opportunities for progression. TAG is proud to be part of an ambitious Multi-Academy Trust (MAT). As such, our staff work with some of the best practitioners and leaders in the region. We are keen to work hard to share best practice across the MAT in order to benefit as many children and young people as we can.

Staff value the support and training they receive from school leaders and through the wider trust. Staff know that leaders have their well-being at heart. This includes those at the early stages of their teaching career. – Ofsted 2023
