Route 39 Academy

Do you have the ability to think outside the box? Do you welcome challenge and innovation? Would you like to join a small, dynamic team of committed staff and help to shape a growing school? We are looking for colleagues with a track record of achievement who are able to contribute to Academy life.

Route 39 Academy is an 11-18 state ‘free’ school that opened in September 2013. We are in our fourth year and currently have 140 students aged 11-15, some of whom have already embarked upon GCSE level study. We are a new choice for North Devon and take a 21st century approach to learning. We are building a brand new school in Bucks Cross, opening in summer 2018, which will enable us to expand to 700 students, and incorporate a sixth form.

Route 39 Academy has a specialism of personalisation with an extended school day. You will be a key part of the team ensuring we provide an effective personalised and inclusive approach for all our students. While we understand some students have continuous needs, we also believe all students succeed when their individual and periodic needs are both understood and supported. You will support this approach ensuring they have the best support to help them succeed both at the Academy and beyond.
