The Governing Body are seeking to appoint a motivated, experienced and exceptional leader with a track record of successful middle leadership. The successful candidate will be inspirational and forward-thinking as well as an outstanding, expert classroom practitioner with a passion and commitment for teaching, learning and student well-being.
The vacancy has arisen due to the retirement of one of our highly successful and long serving Assistant Headteachers. The successful applicant will lead the development of whole school teaching, learning and CPD as well as strategic pastoral oversight of one of the Key Stage cohorts. The postholder will also have line management responsibility of a number of subject areas and shared responsibility for wider areas of senior strategic leadership. The Senior Team is a collaborative and experienced team committed to further developing our already outstanding school.
Spalding High School is an 11 – 18 academically selective community girls’ grammar school with boys in the sixth form and has an excellent reputation within the local community and region. We are a popular, happy and successful school with strong support from governors, parents, students and a dedicated and highly experienced team of staff. In 2017 our examination results placed us as one of the highest ranking state schools in Lincolnshire on the Times Top 200 list. Pupils come from throughout South Holland as well as from Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Peterborough.
We are a progressive school with an innovative curriculum and a rich and diverse extra-curricular programme. Our commitment to developing the whole person prepares students well for the challenges and opportunities that they will face in the rapidly changing world in which they live.
Personal development from childhood to adulthood is also of great importance to us. Our students grow into independent, articulate young women (and young men in the Sixth Form) who take responsibility for their lives and make decisions about their futures in an informed and intelligent way. We are proud of our excellent pastoral care and guidance which ensures that no student is lost in the crowd.
We are looking forward to meeting you and hope that you will want to join us in taking this happy and highly achieving school to the next stage of its development.
The School is committed to equal opportunities and safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. Successful candidates will be subject to an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check.
