We are seeking to appoint a dynamic, forward thinking and energetic Director of Sixth Form. The successful applicant will have unswervingly high expectations of both themselves and the students they lead, and be committed to ensuring outstanding educational outcomes. The successful applicant will join our Senior Leadership Team and be given substantial additional non-contact time to take part in SLT leadership activities, including line managing the sixth form staff team. In return for your passion, commitment and drive, we offer a highly supportive working environment, students who are intellectually curious and keen to learn, and outstanding continued professional development opportunities.
This post represents an excellent opportunity for an outstanding teacher with a strong track record of improvement work as a middle leader, keen to take their first step into Senior Leadership. Previous post holders at this level have gone on to secure Assistant/Deputy Headships, and we would expect the successful applicant to do the same within 3 to 5 years, either at our school or elsewhere.
Easthampstead Park Community School is a vibrant, cutting edge learning environment. Our school culture marries high academic expectations with excellent pastoral care and support. The concept of community is at the very heart of our vision; we believe in a three-way partnership between parents, teachers and students, and are proud of our setting and local community. Teaching and learning is at the very heart of our school, and drives everything we do. An action-research based approach to teaching and learning has been central to our improvement journey in recent years, and we wholeheartedly believe in investing in staff’s continued professional development in the same way that we expect our teachers to passionately invest in our students.
This is a very exciting time to join us. In recent years, we have made excellent progress, and at our last OFSTED inspection (June 2016), we were rated as ‘good’ in all areas.
“Since her appointment, the Headteacher has focused on making sure that all pupils feel safe, happy and confident so that they learn well. This did not happen overnight but it is now apparent in pupils’ much improved behaviour and their positive response to the good teaching they receive.” (OFSTED, 2016)
We aspire to be rated ‘outstanding’, driven by a core belief that all of our students deserve nothing but the best possible teaching and support in order to be happy, healthy and successful. We aim to deliver the best quality teaching and learning in a school where staff and students have respect for, and pride in themselves, their school and their community.
If you feel you have the necessary skills, mind-set and determination to join us on our journey towards ‘outstanding,’ we would very much like to hear from you.
