We give children the best possible start in life.

You’ll give us the impetus to reach the next level.


The Glapton Academy is a place where children achieve their full potential. Our mission is to create an environment that promotes self-belief, sensitivity and the resilience to succeed in modern Britain. We actively value the diverse backgrounds of our pupils and their families, and tailor our curriculum and activities to celebrate our shared values and deliver a holistic approach to education.


As part of the L.E.A.D. Academy Trust, we benefit from access to a wide range of teaching, development and professional services, and our progress speaks for itself. In September 2016, we were rated Good by Ofsted, who noted that our 300 students enjoy a well-developed and embedded curriculum. What’s more, we have some exciting plans for the future, and are currently expanding our provision to become a two-form entry school. Your inspiring and visionary leadership will take us to the next level.


Whether you are currently a Headteacher elsewhere or looking for the next step up, you will be an effective strategic thinker and operational leader, with real passion for excellence. First and foremost, you should be an outstanding teacher who leads by example, and you will be fully capable of evaluating, monitoring and enhancing our teaching and learning whilst developing the skills of every member of the team.

Enjoying access to a comprehensive range of development options, you will be encouraged to pursue CPD and will benefit from wide-ranging opportunities to progress within the L.E.A.D. Academy Trust.
