At the brand-new Bobby Moore Academy, we’re providing exceptional all-through primary and secondary education for 4-18 year olds, with outstanding cultural and sporting facilities and a supportive, high-potential culture. There’s no question that this is one of the most exciting Executive Principal roles currently available in London, and we’re expecting interest from candidates of commensurate calibre.

Bobby Moore Academy, part of the David Ross Education Trust, offers a world-class education for the children of East London. With an iconic primary and secondary site immediately adjacent to the Olympic Stadium, we opened to our very first cohort of Year 7 students in September 2017, and look forward to welcoming the first group of Reception pupils in September 2018. 

We want to hear from ambitious and high-achieving headteachers, whose background should include a substantial and effective period in the secondary phase. Your professionalism and clarity of thought will set you apart from your peers, and you’ll also bring the intellectual and creative capacity to take a system-leadership role across the David Ross Education Trust. With extensive design and investment undertaken in preparation for the school’s launch, our new Executive Principal will have the space and influence to create a unique leadership role.
