Deputy Headteacher

Fakenham AcademyNorfolk

Fakenham Academy is a local school with high ambitions and a key drive for continuous improvement. We believe that education is the key to transforming life chances, and that by creating an outstanding learning environment where all students are happy and taught well we will enhance their prospects to become productive, successful citizens of the future. Our core standards include high expectations of everyone in our learning community; good discipline consistently applied; reliably good quality teaching; a commitment from parents to work in partnership with the academy and respectful, positive relationships between everyone in our learning community. For us it is about educating the whole child through a diverse and broad curriculum and making sure they are prepared to enter today’s modern world, as well rounded capable young men and women.

Our latest Ofsted inspection recognised the high level standard we work hard to deliver resulting in being rated a “good” school in all aspects of the inspection.


The Deputy Headteacher will play a crucial role in the strategic and operational leadership of the school. The exact duties will be negotiated with the successful candidate but are likely to include a key role in raising standards and achievement and/or ensuring the highest quality of support for staff and pupils, including vulnerable students.

If you would like an informal conversation about the role please contact Jade on 01953 609000, ex 3497 or and we will arrange a conversion with either Richard Evans, Headteacher or Zoe Fisher, Director of Education.
