It is a very exciting time to join Trumpington Community College and play a role in the transformational journey we are currently undergoing.

The school was built in 2015 and the main school building provides an outstanding environment for our community.
We are value-driven and our vision is to provide excellent education so that all young people are able to make a success of their lives. Our most important purpose is to teach young people things they would not learn outside school which empower them. We believe that ‘Knowledge Is Power’. We believe in teaching through explicit/direct instruction (Rosenshine) and utilising Doug Lemov’s ‘Teach Like a Champion’ techniques. Our mission is to bring out ‘the best in everyone’. We are unapologetically ambitious for every child, no matter what their background, prior attainment or needs may be. We also believe in ‘Education with Character’ – we want young people to look back on a schooling that has inspired and challenged them, given them wide opportunity and prepared them for the ups and downs of life. We are driven by ‘REACH’ values: Respect, Enthusiasm, Ambition, Confidence and Hardwork.
We value our staff highly and treat workload very seriously. Our systems are high leverage, ensuring that you can really focus on your core purpose – teaching or supporting teaching in a sustainable way, unhindered by bureaucracy or poor behaviour.
We reserve the right to bring forward the closing date if we consider that we have received an appropriate number of suitable candidates for the post.
