Tapton School Academy Trust -

Tapton School Academy Trust (TSAT) was formed in April 2012 by Tapton School, an outstanding 11 to 18 school in the South West of Sheffield. The Trust was immediately asked to support and sponsor Chaucer School, an 11 to 16 school in the north of the city which converted to academy status from September 2012. Another ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted judgement for Tapton in 2013 gave the Trust the opportunity to grow and we currently stand at eight schools – four secondary and five primary: Tapton, Chaucer, Forge Valley and Bradfield are our Secondaries and our Primaries are Southey Green, Meynell, Hillsborough, Wisewood and Hallam.

They are all linked in a shared endeavour – our mission is to provide an outstanding education to all our students 0 – 19. We are passionate that all our young people should see their time at school as safe, happy and fulfilling.

Our approach is founded on deeply effective partnership working – inextricably joining our schools, students, parents and their communities.

Our provision for students and parents

All Tapton School Academy Trust Schools will offer:

  • A genuine inclusive approach which ensures the best possible attainment, progress and achievement for every student.
  • A broad and balanced, enriched curriculum which is delivered by consistently high quality teaching.
  • Safe and harmonious learning environments where behaviour is well managed, learning is uninterrupted and moral values are fostered.
  • Our learners develop resilience and self-reliance which offers them the skills to successfully meet the challenges and opportunities they will encounter in our rapidly changing world.
  • Investment in the professional development of our staff at all stages in the Trust.
  • Leadership will be secured which is able, proactive and focused on success for each school, our students and the wider community.

TSAT is founded on strong local partnerships, we only work within the Sheffield group of schools and are convinced that cross phase working is the very best way to secure our aims. Every Academy is non selective and our admissions are co-ordinated by Sheffield Local Authority. We work very closely with DfE, LA and the family of Sheffield Schools in order to plan strategically for our shared improvement agenda. All of our schools are founding members of Learn Sheffield, a new company operated to bring about a rapid improvement in all settings.

Tapton School Academy Trust seeks to appoint outstanding practitioners to work within our secondary provision and to support our mission of outstanding education for all students. Successful candidates would be recruited to Chaucer School within the Trust and their initial deployment would be within the school supporting their drive towards good and then outstanding. Opportunities exist and are growing, to work across the secondary sector of the Trust.

Interested applicants should read the applicant information packs, and complete the application form and return as directed to Chaucer School.
