We seek to appoint an outstanding, highly motivated leader to join a dynamic and forward thinking leadership team. Applications from experienced senior leaders as well as those from experienced middle leaders seeking their next challenge are welcomed. We are a small High School entering a period of growth and development and are looking for someone to join us on our journey.

The opportunity to be a college leader at Tudor Grange Academy Redditch is an exciting one. This senior role within the Academy presents the opportunity for a leader to develop their leadership skills in preparation for future leadership positions, including across Tudor Grange Academies Trust or as the leader of a school.

College Leaders are responsible for the achievement and pastoral care of approx. 100 students within their college, as well as line management of subject areas. In addition, the college leader will hold strategic responsibilities across the Academy (such as personal development, curriculum, assessment, quality assurance, quality first teaching, disadvantaged students, behaviour, data). Specific responsibilities will be determined following the appointment of the successful candidate. Appointing a leader who believes in the culture of the Academy, whilst showing the right leadership skills and personal values is most important.

The successful candidate would play a vital role in ensuring that we maintain positive outcomes for students at the Academy, whilst also ensuring that students are happy and well cared for. In addition, the ability to establish excellent working relationships with staff, students and parents is a priority.

The chosen candidate will need to:

• Be an excellent classroom practitioner

• Have the ability to lead, motivate and inspire staff and students

• Have a drive for continuing professional development

• Have experience of managing change and development

• Have high expectations of all students

• Be committed to continuous improvement and engage in research

• Be excited by the prospect and opportunities of working in a Multi Academy Trust

If you feel that you have these attributes and skills and you are a suitably qualified and highly motivated professional, then we would like to hear from you. Due to COVID we are hosting visits after school hours and we would also be happy to arrange telephone conversations and / or TEAMS meetings with potential candidates.
