Working for us
‘Great schools thrive because of the great people in them’.
As part of Prospere Learning Trust, we pride ourselves in being a great place to work, providing a supportive culture with opportunities to:
- grow and develop your career;
- achieve a healthy work life balance; and
- to be recognised for the great work you do.
We continually strive to create a community where all our staff and students feel understood, valued and sense of belonging.
Manchester Enterprise Academy (MEA), is a thriving, comprehensive and inclusive secondary academy serving communities in Wythenshawe and South Manchester. We currently have over 1200 students. Our campus includes two teaching buildings, our newest of which incorporates a Theatre, Art, Fashion and Dance studios and new Science laboratories. We also host a new £1million multi-sport facility which includes a full-size 3G rugby and football pitch and other redeveloped sports facilities. We also have a cafe and dining facilities, two Food Technology rooms and recently refurbished ICT, Business and Modern Foreign Language classrooms.
In order to deliver our vision of a fantastic future for all our students, it is important that they achieve the best academic results possible. Our vision of a “Fantastic Future for All Our Students” is easy to understand, but complex to achieve, as the future evolves so rapidly around us. We focus relentlessly on the MEA Way, of Safe, Respectful and Ready.
We work incredibly hard to attract the best teachers and our teacher training provision is graded outstanding by Manchester University. We believe that our teachers’ expertise needs to inspire our students by allowing them to shape and craft exciting learning experiences. Our teaching model emphasises excellent classroom dynamics between staff and students. Exams are a serious business, learning is an emotional journey – students who enjoy learning perform far better than those who are uninspired.
Staff experience and wellbeing is important to us and we ensure that our staff feel informed and supported from their first day and throughout their experience as part of our school community.
