2017 saw record results across the board and we are now proud to be comfortably the highest attaining school in the locality with 64% of Year 11 gaining the equivalent of 5 A*-C including English and Maths. 

This has strengthened our position on our journey to becoming an outstanding school.   

The Leadership Team that has delivered these results is driven, focused and experienced.  We are seeking a highly skilled Deputy Headteacher to continue this excellent work during the absence of the Deputy Headteacher. Due to the strengths of the existing team we will be able to match the duties to fit the skills and experience of the successful candidate.

Our vision for the school is to deliver outstanding education to our students, not only in terms of academic success, but by ensuring we develop the “whole child”.  In order to enjoy a successful adult life it is important that our students develop characteristics such as leadership, organisation, resilience, initiative, and communication. 

If you are an experienced and effective Deputy Headteacher relocating to the area or an experienced Assistant Headteacher seeking the opportunity for progression, this is an excellent opportunity.  We will commit to improving your pedagogy and you will enjoy working in a school where the students are hugely positive and keen to learn.   

We know that to realise our vision we need to attract, develop and reward our people.  We are an ‘Investor in People’, and are committed to the professional development and career progression of our employees.

We would consider a maternity cover role or a secondment to the role if your current establishment supports this move.  

The successful candidate will:  

Be supported by an experienced, focused and drive Leadership Team 

Be supported by a performance management system that rewards excellence 

Have access to national ground-breaking CPD  

The essential qualities for the Deputy Headteacher include:  

A commitment to, and a passion for the Leadership of schools 

A commitment to developing their own pedagogy and that of others 

A commitment to meeting all the requirements for safeguarding children 

Effective and proven Leadership, organisation and communication skills
