Many of the young people who attend our provision arrive here at a point of crisis or conflict in their lives.

This post is 37 hours a week, term time only at Scale 5 Pt 8-11. The salary will be between £16,812 to £18,561 - 44.5 paid weeks.

All appointments are subject to an enhanced DBS check, medical clearance and satisfactory references.

Information about the School

Heybridge Co-operative Academy is an 11 – 16 school for 115 young people most of whom have found it difficult to be successful in a mainstream school.

We are very proud of the provision we offer. Students are taught in small groups and they study the core curriculum at both Key Stage 3 and 4. In addition to the core curriculum, we provide rich and varied extended curriculum opportunities ranging from music therapy, targeted literacy intervention, horse riding to vocational courses and work experience placements. Small classes benefit students and enable them to make good progress as staff can ensure that learning is tailored to individual student needs.

At Key Stage 3, in partnership with local schools, we focus on supporting young people to return to a mainstream school. At Key Stage 4, we focus on providing the opportunity for students to gain 5 GCSEs to ensure a successful transition to post 16 education or training.

We have an ongoing target that none of our Year 11 leavers are NEET (Not in education, employment or training) and we regularly maintain this excellent target.
