Northfield School is a large 11-16 school and specialist sports college. We are an ambitious and inclusive school with state of the art facilities and interactive technology in a well-resourced newly refurbished main building and a separate new Year 7 school.

Following an inspection in January 2020, Ofsted judged that the school continues to be good and acknowledged all the positive work being undertaken to improve it further. This is a great time to join the school.

We wish to appoint a highly motivated and inspirational Assistant Headteacher. The successful candidate will be responsible for our student well-being strategy and lead a large, talented, enthusiastic and experienced guidance team in all aspects of our pupil care, guidance and support programme at Northfield. The successful applicant will also assume the role of Designated Safeguarding Lead and be the lead on attendance.

The appointed candidate will play a key role in the future strategic development of Northfield and will provide proactive support to the Headteacher in realising the shared vision for the school.

We can offer you:

  • enthusiastic, dedicated and motivated colleagues
  • a happy and welcoming school where relationships between staff and students are strong
  • excellent opportunities for CPD
  • a staff health and well-being programme
  • a warm, friendly and positive working environment where everyone is valued.
