St Michael’s is a through school currently providing Catholic education in High Wycombe, in September 2018 we will be welcoming year 7’s to the new St. Michael’s satellite secondary school in Aylesbury.

This is a unique opportunity to work alongside the Executive Headteacher to have significant influence on the strategic development of the on-going planning for the Aylesbury Campus.

The new school will be built on the old Quarrenden School site to the west of Aylesbury town centre. The new school building is a £24 million project that is due to open in September 2019. However the basic need for Catholic pupils and others in Aylesbury means that St. Michael’s will open in September 2018. The new school will be in bespoke temporary accommodation for the first year.

It is our aim to provide the best education for our pupils. We believe in placing the child at the heart of all that we do knowing that it is a real privilege for us, as educators, to walk alongside the children as they grow in their faith and knowledge. As a through school, we are particularly blessed to see students grow from the very beginning of their formal education to their final steps before further study, work and life beyond school.

We are seeking to appoint a candidate with strong leadership and management skills, presence and drive and are willing to support every individual to fulfil their potential.

We are a Catholic community and strive to uphold strong spiritual and moral values, both in and outside the classroom. Applicants should be practising Catholics. As a Catholic School we believe in educating and living by the Gospel Values. It is for this reason that we have built our school community with the children at the centre, of all that we do.
