Jobs

At the Young People’s Academy, we aim to give every student the opportunity to succeed whether it is in the classroom, on the sports field, in the local community or in one of the many extra curricular activities.

We have invested heavily in our buildings and facilities across the Academy to ensure we offer our students the best possible resources.

We understand that many of our pupils come here having had very difficult experiences of school in the past. With the skill and dedication of our staff, we aim to reconnect them with education so they can make progress to becoming successful adults.
