‘CAT employs rolling recruitment methodologies, with shortlisting and interviews for some roles taking place as and when applications are received. This may mean that some roles are recruited to before the closing date, and therefore advise that applications are made without undue delay’.

Carlton Keighley is a small community secondary school, set in an attractive semi-rural location. The school has made rapid progress since joining the Carlton Academy Trust in 2018, gaining its’ first ever ‘Good’ rating from Ofsted in January 2020. Since then, standards in the school have continued to improve due to our culture of high expectations, resulting in some of our best exam results ever and a rapidly expanding school roll. Although a remarkable journey, this is not the limit of the school’s ambitions as it aspires to the Trust motto of ‘Excellence for All’ and become an outstanding school over the next few years. As such, aspirations of all students are high and don’t allow the significant disadvantages that they face to be an excuse for poor outcomes. Teaching and learning is the focus of everything we do, investing in staff through regular, high-quality research-led professional development.

Carlton Keighley is a great place to work with helpful, friendly, and supportive staff and excellent standards of student behaviour and conduct which promote a calm, purposeful atmosphere within lessons and around school. Staff welfare is a priority, and we strive to preserve a proper work-life balance through small class sizes, early Friday finishes, with meetings and paperwork kept to an absolute minimum.

We hope you are excited by the schools’ improvement journey and look forward to welcoming applications from colleagues who share our values and ambition to deliver excellence for the young people of Keighley.
