We’re looking for candidates as a LEARNING MENTOR with the desire to meet the individual learning needs to allow pupils to succeed and flourish.

If you’re an energetic and visionary LEARNING MENTOR with a passion for the value your subject can bring to students, then come and join a team who work every day to motivate and empower young people and maximise potential.

What we offer

The Academy offers a modern purpose built residential facility. The boys have either single or shared rooms which they can personalise and they are encouraged to see the room as their own. The units offer a safe, friendly and caring environment and staff support the young people, by offering consistency and continuity in behaviour management, and encourage them to take responsibility for their own actions and make informed decisions.

As part of our evening activities programme throughout the year we include mountain biking, astro turf football, badminton, bowling, laser quest, pool, snooker, tracking, dodge ball, golf, playstation, xbox, art and craft, cookery, swimming and trips out to places of interest such as Windsor, Boxhill and the beach. Each unit has its own computer and carefully regulated internet access and this can be used in the evening as well as playing a variety of more traditional games.
