Thank you for your interest in MCA, which is a “Good” school that is rapidly improving and will become an outstanding academy very quickly.

The students are most welcoming to new staff and clearly proud to be part of MCA.  Students enjoy very positive working relationships with their teachers and the support staff.  Every classroom is calm and purposeful with students keen to engage with their learning.  This is very much an academy where teachers can teach and students can learn without lessons being disrupted.

In October 2016, Ofsted inspectors reported that, “Pupils have consistently positive attitudes to their learning and parents, pupils and staff recognise good behaviour as a strength of the school.  Pupils are polite and respectful towards each other and their teachers as they move around the school.”

Whilst behaviour in the academy is excellent, the real challenge is to raise the aspirations of all students. By encouraging students to develop a greater appreciation of what they are learning, we can help them achieve beyond their perceived capability.

Our staff care very much about the community and are ambitious for the Academy in terms of learning and enrichment opportunities for the students. To support this ethos we need to appoint a highly motivated and enthusiastic Cover Supervisor who will take classes for absent teachers. This role would be suited to someone who wishes to work in a secondary school and make a difference to our students’ learning as an engaging and passionate individual to help, inspire and motivate young people. 

With strong interpersonal and communication skills, you will be able to develop good working relationships with students, parents and carers, working closely with other members of the team.  You will have a general awareness of supporting personal and academic needs of students, while challenging and motivating them to achieve their best.

We welcome applications from colleagues who are equally ambitious for our students and are prepared to make a significant difference to young people’s aspirations and achievements during their education at Mill Chase.

If you would like to have a discussion  about the role or would like to visit the Academy, please contact Corinne Tutton, via her email

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
