Sheffield Park Academy is part of United Learning, a national group of schools and academies which are united in their mission to bring out 'the best in everyone' and improve the life chances of the children and young people in their care.
We pride ourselves on a team of staff who are supportive, friendly and dedicated to providing the very best teaching and learning for our students. Staff across the academy set a culture of high expectations and continuous improvement for students which, in turn, is reflected in the emphasis we place on continuing professional development (CPD) for our staff.
We have made significant, sustained progress at GCSE and are proud to be the most improved secondary school in Sheffield over the last nine years. In August 2017 our Progress 8 score of 0.95 meant that we were ranked first in Sheffield and amongst the top 1% in the country, with results in our Sixth Form also improving. Nevertheless, we are committed to further development in both teaching and learning.
The academy is situated in purpose-built £30million premises, benefitting from excellent, state-of-the-art facilities and situated within ten minutes of major transport links in the city. As part of United Learning, staff and students are able to access professional development, shared experiences and national opportunities with colleagues and others from across the country. Likewise, as part of a cluster of United Learning academies in the area, there are significant opportunities for joint working, career development and leadership positions.
If you are looking for an exciting, challenging and rewarding career, we encourage you to visit us in person to see what you could achieve at Sheffield Park Academy.
Sheffield Park Academy is a high performing 11 – 18 school with almost 1,200 students, including 150 in our dedicated Sixth Form.
Part of the United Learning group of schools and academies, we have seen real academic improvement over the last five years. Our sustained success places us at the top of Sheffield’s league tables and we have received local and national recognition, including ministerial praise, for our performance in Progress 8. This is the government’s new measure for recording pupil progress from the end of primary school to the end of secondary school, for which we have been recognised as one of the most improved schools in the country.
Following a recent inspection, Ofsted confirmed that the academy continues to be ‘Good’ and praised a range of its strengths:
As a thriving and ambitious academy, with a focus on continuous improvement, we are determined to deliver an ‘Outstanding’ education for every one of our students, providing the support they need to achieve their full potential.
By joining Sheffield Park Academy you will also become part of United Learning - a unique group of independent and state schools working together to bring out the best in everyone. Our vision is to provide excellent education, which prepares young people to progress in learning and to make a success of their lives. United Learning focuses sharply on the evidence of what makes it more likely that young people will progress and succeed, apply that to classroom practice, allowing schools to continue to learn and develop. It is a priority to provide teachers with excellent professional support and development, so that every child receives an excellent experience.
The approach is underpinned by a sense of moral purpose and commitment to doing what is right for children and young people, supporting colleagues to achieve excellence and acting with integrity in all our dealings within and beyond the organisation, in the interests of young people everywhere.
The development programmes offer access to tailor-made training no matter your career stage, alongside unrivalled opportunities for your career development across both the maintained and independent sectors. The Performance and Development Reviews (PDR) encompass personal aspiration, impact on pupil achievement and identification of continuous professional development and training that is right for you and your future.
