You will be:

  • a motivating and inspiring role model demonstrating high expectations for all of our students to achieve their potential
  • passionate and committed to improve the lives of young people


All schools in The Dartmoor Multi Academy Trust are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
