We are delighted that you are interested in applying to become our next Executive Headteacher across our two wonderful Catholic schools, St Mary and St Peter in Gorleston and St Mary’s in Lowestoft. We are really proud of these two schools; they are well regarded locally and play an important part in providing an excellent education for children on the coast of Norfolk and Suffolk. Both schools have unique identities, firmly rooted in Christian values, and have strong links with their local communities and Parishes.
Families are at the heart of the schools, both are highly valued for the nurture and support that they provide for all pupils and their families and the fully rounded quality of education. More recently, the two schools have developed strong collaborative partnerships, including sharing aspects of pastoral expertise, teaching and curriculum leadership.
The new Executive Headteacher can build upon these strong foundations to further improve education and outcomes. The staff are dedicated, loyal, and are well supported by the wider Trust offer with regard to CPD and other benefits; recruitment has rarely been an issue at either school. As our next Executive Headteacher you can expect to have the full support to develop yourself as a leader, supported by a Trust who has a strong reputation for Teaching, Learning and curriculum development.
This post offers exciting opportunities to not only lead two successful schools, but to contribute to and gain from a Trust wide vision for learning, participating in leading and developing CPD across the region, if that is of interest to you.
Our next Executive Headteacher will lead two dynamic and friendly Catholic schools and with our support will realise their full potential as a leader and develop alongside the schools and Trust in their career and expertise. We are excited to meet candidates and look forward to inviting you to visit us in the near future
