At Park Hill we aim to bring out the best in everyone.


The Board of Governors is seeking a visionary leader who believes, like us, that every child at Park Hill is capable of achieving great things.

The successful candidate will relish the chance of leading in a diverse, multi-faith community school and will have excellent pastoral and communication skills to work effectively with our parents and other stakeholders.

  • An ability to identify school improvement priorities and strategically planning for their development.
  • The ability to lead by example, embedding excellent practice and being committed to meeting the learning needs of all children.
  • Effective use of pro-active approaches to behaviour management.

The Assistant Head will lead English and Educational Visits across the school.

We offer:

  • Hard working, responsive pupils.
  • A compassionate and inclusive school serving a diverse community.
  • Staff committed to high standards of teaching and learning.
  • Active Governors who are committed to their role as strategic leaders.
  • Parents who are willing to work in partnership with the school to raise standards.

The vacancy arises upon the promotion of the Assistant Head to Deputy Head Teacher.
