Hello & Welcome

On behalf of Cumbria Education Trust, and the staff and students at Workington Academy, I would like to thank you for your interest in our academy. I hope this website provides you with all the information you need to find out more about this exciting opportunity.

Workington Academy has been part of the Cumbria Education Trust since September 2015 during which time we have made some significant steps towards providing an inspiring education for all our students. We now need a great leader to drive the academy forward.

With approximately 800 students on roll, Workington is proud of its ‘family feel’, which provides a nurturing yet focused environment for all students. Each student is at the heart of everything we do and we pride ourselves on being truly inclusive, encouraging all our young people to believe in themselves and achieve the very best. Our new Headteacher will share this ethos and will be a committed leader, with a relentless focus on achieving success for every student by offering an outstanding education.

To achieve continued improvement at Workington Academy, our new Headteacher will work with a proven Trust team, as well as a committed Local Advisory Board (LAB) who will provide support and challenge. We are seeking a leader with the ambition and strength to make an impact; someone who is a true champion for our students and who will be an inspirational leader for our team of staff.

If you are interested in this unique opportunity to work within a small but growing, local and dynamic trust and would like to find out more about the academy and the role please contact our recruitment partners at Navigate to discuss further, and arrange a visit to the academy.

Yours sincerely

Lorrayne Hughes
