Felixstowe Academy is an 11 to 18 comprehensive school at the heart of a friendly community. With high quality teaching practises, supported by an excellent teacher training programme and state of the art facilities, Felixstowe Academy is an up-and-coming school offering a wealth of opportunities for both students and staff.
We run our own Professional Studies Programme for all trainee teachers and newly-qualified teachers (NQTs) as well as involving our trainees in whole-school teacher training and INSET opportunities. Trainees and NQTs are allocated their own personal mentor, who will be available to offer excellent coaching, training, mentoring and support.
We have an excellent record of Initial Teacher Training involvement and have worked in partnership with SNITT (Suffolk and Norfolk Initial Teacher Training), Essex teacher training and universities such as the UEA.
Increasingly, we are also recruiting new staff from our trainees and there are excellent opportunities for further career development either within Felixstowe Academy or elsewhere in the AET (Academies Enterprise Trust) chain of academies.
Please take time to look through our website to see what Felixstowe Academy has to offer.
