Swallow Hill serves a part of Leeds that needs a school to be inclusive, where students are safe and nurtured and one which puts aspiration, ambition and achievement at its heart. A massive amount of hard work has already been undertaken including embedding a new curriculum, re-modelling pastoral structures, adopting the Positive Discipline policy and ensuring that all members of the academy community understand the vision of ‘making our best better’. We believe that whilst there remains much to do the academy is now well placed to quickly move toward. 

Ofsted in November 2016 moved us out of category and we are now judged to be ‘Requires Improvement’. This was off the back of our best ever GCSE results in 2016. 

In order to continue to move forward, it is absolutely vital that we attract the right calibre of professional to work alongside our dedicated team of staff; a colleague who shares the clear vision that the child is at the very heart of everything we do; a colleague who is able to enjoy positive, professional relationships with young people; and, perhaps most importantly, a colleague who can demonstrate high levels of resilience and emotional intelligence when dealing with complex and sensitive situations.

We are part of the Academies Enterprise Trust network of schools, which provides a high degree of support and expertise to the whole school community; we enjoy significant partnerships with other secondary schools within Leeds and West Yorkshire, and a growing number of primary Academies, most of which are located close by. 

If you share our vision of delivering outstanding education to all children in an inclusive setting, if you want to serve the community and if you can contribute to our journey to become outstanding with your unique skills, expertise, energy, enthusiasm and passion, please ensure you submit an application.
