Uffculme is a flourishing, popular, high performing Academy located on the beautiful Devon/Somerset border with easy motorway access to the regional
centres of Taunton and Exeter. The February 2014 Ofsted inspection classed the Academy as ‘outstanding’. Uffculme is fully comprehensive and committed to inclusion. Examination results are consistently over 80% for five or more GCSEs at A*-C including English and Maths. Last year our Progress 8 score was 1.02 with the disadvantaged achieving 0.91. This puts us in the top 1% of all schools nationally. Consequently we have received many national awards and accolades over recent times to recognise the quality of the education provided here at Uffculme but none of these is as important as the confidence of our community.

The Directors of Uffculme Academy Trust are seeking to appoint a permanent Teacher of English to join our Outstanding School in September 2018. This vacancy would be suitable for NQTs, RQTs and experienced teachers.

You will be, or have the potential to be, an outstanding teacher who inspires a love of English in your students and who is able to deliver the exceptional results which we have come to expect from our students. We can offer you support from an excellent team of colleagues where morale is high, fantastic facilities and young people who genuinely want to learn.
