Head of Lower School

Park Hall AcademySolihull

Due to the growth of our Multi Academy Trust and Park Hall’s significant contribution to its development, we are seeking to appoint an inspirational and highly skilled leader to our dynamic pastoral team at Park Hall Academy. We are looking to appoint a dynamic teaching middle leader to join our pastoral team, to relentlessly drive the highest standards for our students within Lower School, by ensuring that they are engaged in their learning, both in school and at home. Barriers to student achievement will be identified and addressed, which allows all students to achieve the highest pastoral and academic outcomes. There will be a reduced teaching commitment for this role. We welcome applicants from any discipline.

If appointed, you will be joining a strong team of middle leaders, who are fully committed to delivering the best outcomes for our students. We aim to both challenge and support our students to push the boundaries of their achievements, to contribute to the wider life of the school and its community and to be role models in all that they do.

We are a GOOD school. Our Ofsted in November 2017 highlighted our many Good and Outstanding features. We are the highest performing school in North Solihull with a positive Progress 8 score for the last 2 years of publication. Our percentage of Grade 5 or above in the Basics has continued to improve year on year and this reflects our desire to be Outstanding. We are a school with a very strong Sixth Form with results among the best in the country.

We promise to offer you both a stimulating and highly rewarding experience in return for your motivational skills and good practice.  Opportunities don’t arise very often to work in a vibrant school like Park Hall and we are delighted to be offering the chance for someone to join the team.

In return we can offer you:

  • A positive and innovative learning culture supported by students, staff, parents and governors
  • A collaborative and supportive attitude amongst staff which promotes a sense of teamwork and unity
  • A Senior Leadership team who is committed to promoting the best environment and outcomes for staff and students
  • Cycle to Work scheme
