The school is about to benefit from a partial re-build under PSBP2 and is the home of the annual Griffin Schools Trust (GST) Sports Festival as well as the base for our Director of Sport. It also plays a full part in our other annual events: our Arts Festival, Founders Day and the Griffin Science Symposium.

Having led the school to its first and confident ‘Good’ judgment in 2015, the current Head is joining the central team to add her capacity to our Head-led Trust of 10 primary and 2 secondary schools in the Midlands and South East.

Your role will be to lead NCS to Ofsted Outstanding and beyond that to Griffin Great, whilst managing a complex building programme and adding to the breadth and quality of provision in and outside the curriculum. You will have experience of high-performing schools and a commitment to our wide horizons agenda which sits at the centre of the Trust’s vision and every school’s success.

You will also understand the huge benefits of working with colleague Heads from both phases as professional equals and the difference between rivalry and competition.

GST offers exceptional job satisfaction, personal and professional development opportunities to those who share our mission and values. Find out if we are a good match and tell us why you should be the next Head at NCS.
