Why Featherstone?

This page is designed to help and support prospective candidates and hopefully future employees in deciding whether or not to come and be part of The Featherstone Academy journey


The Featherstone Academy is a small school with big ambitions.  It is a place of learning.  Learning not just for students but for staff also.  Our desire is to be better, constantly improving with a real desire to improve the life chances of the students we teach.

We do this through our three core values: Responsibility, Aspiration and Pride.

We believe it is our responsibility to nurture and develop both our teaching staff and support staff to ensure they can be the best that they can be.  As an academy, part of The Rodillian Multi Academy Trust, we are fortunate to offer numerous layers of support, training and bespoke development packages to all staff across their career development.

At The Featherstone Academy we understand the importance of quality first teaching and the significant role building positive relationships plays in students making progress.  Our small warm and supportive community is always driving to develop better classroom practitioners.  It is our aspiration that we create a learning environment for all with extremely high expectations.

Finally, we want to instill a sense of pride in our staff and students.  We want people to feel proud of their hard work and the high impact their hard work has on our young students.  We believe we have a civil responsibility to make our students and community better.  We are very proud of the steps we have made so far in our journey to becoming a beacon of aspiration and inspiration in Featherstone.  We hope that looking through our website, listening to our staff and students you choose to become part of our wonderful journey.
