Felixstowe Academy is situated on the beautiful Suffolk coast; a fantastic place to live and work, a reasonable travelling distance from London, Cambridge and Norwich.

We are an inclusive 11-18 academy and part of Academies Enterprise Trust (AET). We have a new state of the art building equipped with a 'super-lab', a number of multi-purpose learning spaces and performance spaces which are set in large grounds on the edge of Felixstowe.

Technology is at the cutting edge of developments, with Chromebooks for students in KS4 and 5.

Achievement and participation in sports and arts are very high with students succeeding at local, county and national level.

In addition, we can offer you a welcoming environment with supportive colleagues, and a strong focus on staff induction, training and development.

Which is why at AET, you'll find more. More opportunities, so you can forge your own path. More care and support, so you can prioritise what matters most. More purpose, for you and for the children we're inspiring.

We offer:
