The Role

We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated Director of Pastoral Provision, to help foster a caring and supportive learning environment for the young people in our school.

We believe it is a privilege to be able to make a real difference to the life chances of the young people we serve. We are looking for someone who can bring out the best in every learner, regardless of their circumstances.

We are passionate about the importance of academic, technical and vocational learning. Our students excel in their GCSE, A-level, technical and vocational courses because of the great teaching and support they receive from our excellent staff team. Our state-of-the-art building provides students access to world-class equipment and facilities.
