Working within the Beyond Schools Trust

Don't just take our word for it.  Hear from some of our staff about what its like to work for Beyond Schools Trust.

Mr T Morgan Head of Department 

My story: What I love about the Trust and Fort Pitt is the real sense of community of students and staff supporting and helping each other in all aspects of school life. I started my career in another school in the Trust and the collaboration and leadership encouraged me to seek promotion within it, which has meant that I have not lost all of the positive aspects of being in Beyond.

Fort Pitt is an exceptional school where the staff are happy, hardworking, and most importantly put the students first. I have appreciated the trust that the school has put in me as a department lead. I have been able to change aspects of the curriculum which I and the department believe has made a real positive difference and this has been fully supported by my line manager and the leadership team. The school and trust are truly unique in this regard, and I would always recommend teaching and pastoral staff to seek employment here.

Vandana Attra Teaching Assistant

My story: I was raised and educated to University level in India before I coming to the UK in 1993.  I started working as a Teaching Assistant at Thomas Aveling in 2007.

I have been offered several opportunities to work with a range of diverse students from all backgrounds.  I have worked with emotionally vulnerable students as well as students with specific Special Educational Needs to ensure they have 1:1 support to make them confident, independent, and resilient learners.   

During my time, I have been encouraged to complete several training courses to enhance my understanding of good practice to help students with specific needs progress in each subject.  These courses include  Autism awareness courses, ADHD, Safeguarding children, Mental wellbeing in children , Promoting positive behaviour. 

I enjoy working in a supportive environment where our students are genuinely appreciative of our commitment to them and work hard to ensure they are gaining the best education possible.  Our students are respectful and hardworking, and I have been able to build strong relationships with them so they can reach out to me for help when needed.  Thomas Aveling is a truly wonderful and supportive place to work, and I know there are many opportunities available for me to progress both personally and professionally.

Miss L Campbell Student Support Manager

My story:  Having recently moved to the area, I was determined to work in a school committed to providing a supportive learning environment for its students, and a positive work atmosphere for its staff. At Fort Pitt, I found just that. From the moment I stepped into the school, I was welcomed by both the staff and students, making it easy to transition into my new role. The school’s commitment to maintaining an inclusive and supportive environment aligned perfectly with my own values and aspirations.

Working at Fort Pitt has offered me countless opportunities to directly impact student’s lives, nurturing their academic and personal growth. As the KS3 Student Support Manager, my passion for education and the positive difference we can make in the lives of young people is constantly reinforced.

Mrs R Wiltshire-Hale - Wellbeing Lead

My story:  Working at Fort Pitt as the Wellbeing lead is an incredibly fulfilling and inspiring experience. Supporting young people and their families has always been fundamentally important to me and finding a school that truly and whole-heartly signs up to this has been amazing.

The nature of my role is not without its significant challenges, and I am often working with young people who find themselves in adverse and at times traumatic situations however the support, care, and positive affirmation from the staff community and in particular the senior leadership team is second to none.

Working for Fort Pitt as part of the Beyond Schools Trust is extremely rewarding and a privilege.

Miss A Pledger -  Head of Year

My story:  Having joined Fort Pitt and the Beyond Academies trust as a Biology Teacher and Head of Year 8 in September, I have felt nothing but support from the offset.  The teaching and learning team ensured I was armed with all the information I could need to support my general teaching and classroom management in a new school environment. My Head of Department has a wealth of knowledge and has pushed me to open myself up to new opportunities within the department while always aware of my individual capacity to take on more.   

The environment at Fort Pitt is one that is shaped around positivity and a love for learning where both students and teachers are pushed to fulfil their potential. Fort Pitt has provided the opportunities to both support and encourage me through my developing career; I feel like a better educational practitioner for working here.
