People are at the heart of what we are and what we do at Excalibur Academies Trust. We aspire to be an organisation that operates at its fullest potential by allowing people to do their best work. We want to continue to attract outstanding, inspirational, and talented people, support them to succeed, and celebrate their success.

Working in education is rewarding but can be challenging, and if you join Excalibur we will be your biggest champions.  You will be valued and supported whether you are looking to train to teach, an early career teacher at the beginning of your career, more experienced and ready for a new challenge or you aspire to make a difference by working with children or supporting the work of our schools. We recognise that every member of staff contributes to the success of Excalibur Academies Trust and we will support you on your journey.
