The Park Academies Trust was formed in 2016 with the vision to make a significant contribution to improving education in Swindon and surrounds.

Red Oaks Primary School became part of the Trust in 2019, joining Lydiard Park Academy (LPA) and Abbey Park School, our two secondary schools. As a result, we are able to offer an all through provision from nursery right up to our Sixth Form based at LPA, enabling staff and pupils alike to benefit from being part of a thriving multi-phase educational Trust.

We celebrated an excellent year for GCSE results across both secondary schools in 2020 and another very successful set of A-level results from our Sixth Form based at LPA. We need talented staff as we take advantage of the unique opportunities ahead.

TPAT reserves the right to close this vacancy earlier than the stated date if enough suitable applications are received.
