Working for us
The Halifax Academy is a rapidly improving school that is welcoming, friendly and highly supportive of both staff and students. Our school has recently been awarded the prestigious Investors in People ‘Gold Standard', which recognises our commitment to creating a workplace where staff feel valued, share a strong sense of purpose and where their talents and hard work are recognised. The Investors in People report highlighted the way that all new members of staff in particular appreciated the support they are given.
We expect a great deal from our staff but in turn we reward high levels of commitment. Every member of our teaching staff is involved in our ‘Coaching for Excellence’ programme; a reflective scheme whereby staff work in trios to focus on improving teaching and learning in all subjects. High quality teaching and learning together with outstanding outcomes are central to our school improvement agenda.
High expectations, both of our students and staff, are the hallmark of The Halifax Academy. We place great emphasis on having the highest aspirations and being respectful to others. Those high expectations are reflected in the progress students make during their time at The Halifax Academy – we have been identified as being one of the highest performing schools both in the local authority and also nationally with regard to progress, particularly in English and Mathematics.
The Halifax Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
