You will have the ambition and vision to secure the very best outcomes for all students.  If, having read the person specification you are confident that you fulfil our requirements for this position, this could be the perfect opportunity for you, and we look forward to receiving your application. Shoreham Academy aspires to being a ‘Great School’ so we need great people to be able to achieve this.

United Learning

We are part of United Learning, a large, and growing, group of schools aiming to offer a life changing education to children and young people across England.

Our schools work as a team and achieve more by sharing than any single school could. Our subject specialists, our Group-wide intranet, our own curriculum and our online learning portal all help us share knowledge and resource, helping to simplify work processes and manage workloads for an improved work-life balance.

As a Group, we can reward our staff better: with good career opportunities, better pay, benefits, and ultimately, the satisfaction of helping children to succeed. We invest in our staff wellbeing. Our academies each have at least eight INSET days per year (with three of those solely dedicated to planning), and an ongoing group-wide wellbeing programme. It's an ethos we call ‘the best in everyone’.

We are working hard to become a more diverse organisation – which is key to our commitment to bringing out the best in everyone. We welcome applications from everyone committed to this ethos and would particularly welcome applications from black and minority ethnic candidates, who are currently under-represented in the Group as a whole.  We always appoint on merit. We are open to discussing flexible working options.


Welcome to Shoreham Academy – a vibrant and thriving school at the heart of the communities of Shoreham-by-Sea and Southwick.At Shoreham Academy we aim not only to match parents’ expectations of what a school should offer their child but to exceed them. Within a welcoming and supportive environment, we provide a stimulating and engaging education designed to give every child the chance to achieve their potential.
