  • high quality learning environments and facilities in two delightful rural settings
  • dedicated and highly trained staff who are committed to success and who are positively encouraged to continue their professional development
  • a single federated governing body of enthusiastic, skilful and very supportive governors.

Our Headteacher will:

  • be aspirational, strategic and forward thinking, and will lead by example with authority, enthusiasm and creativity
  • invest in and challenge pupils and staff alike in order that they may fulfil their potential
  • enhance the outward-facing federation, foster engagement with all stakeholders and communicate our vision effectively
  • embrace the opportunity and challenge of developing the federation.
