In order to continue on this exciting phase of development, we are now seeking a passionate Assistant Principal to join our team.

We are pioneering our teaching and learning outlook by being a 21st Century school and are proud to be a ‘Microsoft Showcase School’, 1 of only 14 in the United Kingdom. Our pupils use technology for their learning, equipping them with vital skills for the future.

  • Have experience of working in a diverse and forward-thinking community.
  • Have a proven track record in leadership to bring about excellence and improvement in a professional culture of trust and transparency. 

In return, you will join a team where staff well-being is at the forefront of everything we do, providing a positive work-life balance.
