Whether you are an NQT or an experienced practitioner, if you are passionate about teaching RS, PSHE and Citizenship and are committed to helping your pupils achieve their full potential, West Exe wants to hear from you.

We are looking to recruit a teaching professional to play an active role in our continued drive to create outstanding life chances for our students. In all our decisions, our students come first, whether that be planning for rich and exciting lessons, organising visits from speakers who will inspire our students and promote enthusiastic, informed dialogue, or expanding our range of extra-curricular activities to widen the cultural opportunities for all. A successful candidate will share these values and help to ensure that a student focussed approach is always at the forefront of our decision making.

We are committed to providing the very best environment for professional growth, believing that this is key to fostering an innovative and a progressive atmosphere. Each member of the department plays a part towards moving our vision forwards – with everyone having the opportunity to lead on some aspect of the curriculum or school life. Regardless of your years of experience, if you are reflective in your approach and have a desire to continuously improve your practice, this is the school for you.

West Exe is part of the Ted Wragg Multi Academy Trust. The Trust is a values-driven, rapidly growing 2 – 16 Trust with a relentless focus on transforming lives through learning by delivery outstanding outcomes for every pupil, regardless of background. With a reputation for highly successful school improvement in very challenging circumstances, the Trust is passionate about driving up standards and raising the aspirations of all our pupils. By joining us to teach RS, PSHE and Citizenship at West Exe, you would be able to access cross Trust opportunities such as the Ted Wragg Leadership Development Programme, cross-department curriculum exchanges and thus, you would be able to develop your professional network.

Finally, we believe in being welcoming to all, students and practitioners alike and always value the opportunity to discuss our curriculum and teaching with others.
