About Us

For those who want to combine quick access to London and Oxford with country living, North Oxfordshire Academy is the ideal location. We are situated in Banbury, a vibrant market town steeped in history which enjoys affordable rental and house prices.

The academy sits on a 48-acre site and offers great facilities including extensive playing fields, a national standard athletics track and a 50-place nursery to which teachers benefit from heavily subsidised places.

The academy offers excellent professional development opportunities and career progression. Teachers, NQTs, Support Staff and Schools Direct trainees all benefit from high-quality, supportive CPD. Our staff are optimistic, hardworking and great team players and new staff very quickly become part of the NOA family.

We would be delighted to welcome any prospective applicants to see for themselves how we work at North Oxfordshire Academy.

The role

We are looking to appoint a teacher of Computing and ICT in order to expand our current IT curriculum from September 2018. The successful candidate will have a genuine enthusiasm for Computer Science and be well placed to generate and sustain a high degree of motivation and achievement in all pupils. The successful applicant will be committed to providing high-quality, effective, pupil-centered learning and will be innovative and reflective, with a genuine interest in young people and how they learn. This post is suitable for experienced teachers as well as NQTs.

About You

We are seeking a teacher with great enthusiasm for Computing who wants to try out new ideas and help shape the future of the subject at the school. We are seeking a teacher who can teach from Year 7 through to A Level. The ability to teach media or Business Studies would be an advantage. A willingness to participate in the fulfilling co-curricular life of the School is expected.

United Learning

North Oxfordshire Academy is part of United Learning, a large, and growing, group of schools aiming to offer a life changing education to children and young people across England.

Our schools work as a team and achieve more by sharing than any single school could. Our subject specialists, our Group-wide intranet, our own curriculum and our online learning portal all help us share knowledge and resource, helping to simplify work processes and manage workloads for an improved work-life balance.

As a Group, we can reward our staff better: with good career opportunities, better pay, benefits, and ultimately, the satisfaction of helping children to succeed. We invest in our staff wellbeing. Our academies each have at least eight INSET days per year (with three of those solely dedicated to planning), and an ongoing group-wide wellbeing programme. It's an ethos we call ‘the best in everyone’.
