We wish to appoint a highly motivated and efficient cover manager to bring a high level of expertise to organising and providing cover in this rapidly improving school. Over the last three years we have assembled an excellent group of senior leaders and teachers who are having a significant impact on the quality of teaching and student outcomes. With an aspirational culture, and a commitment to evidence informed teaching, we want to achieve more. We received a Good judgement in our Ofsted inspection in July 2021 and our pre-covid recent exam results were amongst the best in County Durham. We have made significant improvements to our curriculum, teaching, and professional development programme and we are committed to reducing teacher workload.

Framwellgate School Durham is an 11-18 non-selective secondary school and Single Academy Trust. The school roll has increased by 35% in three years, and we now have more than 1300 students who attend the school.

The successful candidate will possess expertise alongside energy and enthusiasm. They will believe that every young person deserves the very best education. A commitment to raising achievement, and a willingness to learn, train and develop as a cover manager are all essential. We can offer you an environment where student behaviour is excellent, prior attainment levels are amongst the highest in the North-East, and our students and staff are a pleasure to work with. With many new teachers and support staff appointed over the last three years, we have quickly become a vibrant and exciting school in which to develop your career.
