Newton Abbot College is an over-subscribed secondary school with a growing Sixth Form that is situated in the heart of Newton Abbot, Devon. Our mission is to support, challenge and inspire every individual to be better than they ever dreamt they could be. To achieve this staff and students share the same set of values and drivers that underpin an ethos of traditional values and incredibly high expectations and a culture of high-quality teaching supported by exceptional pastoral care. Staff wellbeing and professional development are always a priority and we work hard to look after our staff and provide them with opportunities to develop their practice and, if they wish, further their careers. There is a very strong sense of community and team at Newton Abbot College; everybody looks out for one another and everybody is proud of their role as together we grow our college from strength to strength.
The Ivy Education Trust works closely with all schools within the Trust and beyond. The Ivy Education Trust celebrates the diversity of each of its schools and is founded upon the alignment of vision and values that we all commonly hold to secure the best outcomes for our pupils.
The name of our Trust is inspired by the story of Dr Ivy Williams. Born in Teignbridge (Newton Abbot), in 1877, she managed what we would wish for all the children and young people of Teignbridge and surrounding area that we serve in our schools by fulfilling her childhood dreams and ambitions.
On 10 May 1922 Dr Ivy Williams became the first woman to be called to the Bar (formally recognised as a qualified Barrister of Law) of England and Wales.
The story of Dr Ivy Williams reminds us of the famous quote from Michelangelo:
“The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low and achieving our mark.”
The Ivy Education Trust supports and challenges all members of our learning community to dream big, aim high, and achieve more than they ever thought was possible.
If you share these visions and aspirations, then we very much welcome your application for this post.
