This is a unique opportunity to join the Middle Leadership Team of a school in its infancy and to help shape its ethos, ambitions and values. The successful candidate will have a pivotal role in shaping the future of the organisation and, as a leader in the college, you will have opportunities to spread your wings and develop the department you always wanted to lead!
