Stromness Academy

Teacher of Support for Learning

17.5 hours per week (0.5FTE)
Temporary up to 3 June 2025

We are looking for a committed and dynamic individual who will enjoy the challenge of joining our committed Support for Learning team to meet the additional support needs of young people at Stromness Academy.

You will be a skilled and enthusiastic educator with experience in inclusive practice and you will be fully committed to the learning and teaching approaches of Curriculum for Excellence and to inspiring and motivating pupils. A track record of successful collegiate and partnership working and a solution-oriented approach to meeting the needs of learners are essential.

Stromness Academy is a six-year secondary school on a well-appointed campus in Orkney, which is frequently voted the best place in the UK to bring up children. Our catchment area covers the town of Stromness and the West Mainland, a dispersed population with over two thirds of our pupils being bussed into school. The small size of our school (approximately 350 on roll), and our classes, means we know our pupils well and are able to be flexible to meet their needs. We are committed to providing a positive and purposeful environment where all our pupils achieve, as set out in our school vision. This is an exciting opportunity for the right candidate to become part of a forward-looking school and a rich and vibrant community.

Further information about the school and our activities can be found on our website and our Facebook page
