Head of Centre – Bradford Alternative Provision Academy

Grade L11-L15

Start Date: 1st September 2021

Following the promotion of the current Head of Centre to Headteacher, Exceed Academies Trust is now seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and dynamic Head of Centre to lead the Jesse Street Centre on behalf of Bradford Alternative Provision Academy from September 2021.

Bradford Alternative Provision Academy is a split site, purpose built secondary alternative provision in Bradford, providing intensive learning programmes for 65 pupils who are referred to the setting following permanent exclusion from a mainstream setting.

Based over two sites – The Aireview Centre at Saltaire and the Jesse Street Centre at Fairweather Green, off Thornton Road – the individual settings work together as one single Academy, consistently improving the life chances of the young people of Bradford. In addition, a number of students access provision away from our sites at other alternative provision (AP) settings. These include Bradford and Keighley colleges and a number of smaller providers.

Offering pupils a fresh start in a new environment, away from the influence of peers and experiences that have previously impacted on their ability to succeed, Bradford Alternative Provision Academy is committed to providing a safe, caring and stimulating environment for all pupils. This allows the young people who attend the opportunity to re-engage with learning and either return to mainstream schooling or successfully move to a more specialist setting.

Bradford Alternative Provision Academy joined Exceed Academies Trust in April 2019 and has quickly become an integral part of the Trust, leading the way as an outstanding provider of specialist education in Bradford.

Exceed Academies Trust believe that successful schools and academies develop their own identity and individuality and are best placed to meet their own community’s needs. We believe that partnership working, the sharing of good practice and being outward facing as an organisation supports our aims and leads to outstanding results.

This post is a unique opportunity for an outstanding and ambitious existing senior leader, experienced within alternative provision, to work alongside the existing senior leadership team to enhance education in Bradford alongside furthering their career.

Reporting directly to the Headteacher and additionally working in close collaboration with other leadership colleagues across the organisation, the new Head of Centre at Bradford Alternative Provision Academy will be responsible for the day-to-day leadership and management of our alternative provision setting based at Jesse Street. The successful candidate will work together with the Head of Centre at Aireview and the Headteacher to jointly lead this outstanding setting on its progressive journey to become the pinnacle of alternative provision education in the city of Bradford.
