EPAT is a cross-phase ‘Starter Trust’, providing high quality educational provision, standards and outcomes in local schools. It was formed on 1st February 2017, through a collaborative partnership between The Eastwood Academy (a secondary converter academy) and Bournemouth Park Primary School (a maintained primary school).
The Eastwood Academy's ethos - ‘Believe, Succeed, Together’- is an uncompromising belief that all pupils can and will succeed in a learning environment which supports and values everyone and their achievements.
Locally, the Eastwood Academy is the highest performing non-selective school and regularly outperforms the selective schools. Nationally, in terms of pupil progress, the Academy has been in the top 10% of schools over the last 3 years.
The Eastwood Academy was subject to a section 5 Ofsted inspection in December 2018 and achieved an ‘outstanding’ judgement in all categories.
Bournemouth Park Academy is a rapidly improving non-selective primary school in Southend. In 2016, it was rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted and was ranked in the top 100 most improved primary schools in the country.
Eastwood Park Academy Trust is committed to promoting equality and diversity in the workplace. We are fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. For the successful candidate, the Academy will undertake all relevant pre-employment checks, including an enhanced DBS check.
