Required for September 2018 – two outstanding teachers to help us continue our journey to becoming an Outstanding School.

We are looking to replace two of our assistant headteachers who were recently promoted to deputy headships in outstanding schools. We are seeking successors to contribute to our continuing journey by bringing fresh eyes and energy in order to lead staff forward in our drive to maximise progress for all our students.

Applications are invited from passionate and enthusiastic practitioners who have a proven track record of both leading colleagues and personally accelerating the progress of students.

These posts would equally suit someone new to Senior Leadership or a current Assistant Head who is looking to widen their experience, hence the expended pay spine available to a holder if and when appropriate.

Initial responsibilities across the two posts are likely to include some of the following:

  • Data including strategic direction, target setting and tracking
  • Disadvantaged students
  • Priority groups
  • The curriculum
  • Vocational examination courses including the oversight of Btec
  • Options
  • The school timetable
  • Reporting
  • ICT strategic overview
  • Links with community partners
  • line management responsibility which could include faculties and year groups
  • Learning and Teaching

There will however be the need for flexibility.  All responsibilities are reviewed by the Head on an annual basis.

Foxford is an 11-18 multicultural Trust School which is known for its friendly, supportive ethos and ambition. We are a forward thinking and busy school with lots of links to the community.

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment.

We will be interviewing week beginning 12th March 2018.  If you wish to make arrangements for a visit, or would like to discuss any aspect of these posts, please contact Ali Wilkins, HR Manager at the school on 024 7636 9200
