Head of School  

Required for September 2018  

Salary: £63,041 - £71,153 (Group 2 - L15 -21)  

Contract Type: Full Time            Contract Term: Permanent  

Wanted:  Outstanding, committed educationalist to lead the School and Children’s Centre from Good to Outstanding  

Pilgrims’ Way Primary School and Children’s Centre is situated in a multicultural and multilingual area where there is a high level of socio-economic disadvantage. We like to think of ourselves as an oasis just moments away from the hub-bub of the Old Kent Road. For many of the children who come to Pilgrims’ Way, the quality of education and support they receive will have a far greater impact on their future life choices.  

Our aspiration is to be judged an “Outstanding” school by Ofsted at our next inspection.  

We passionately believe that our children must have the very best education and guidance so they eventually leave school with some real choices to make about their future jobs, careers, further education and lifestyle. We know that the right Head of School will make an enormous difference to the lives of these children and their families.  

We are a school with: 

•exceptionally well behaved, happy children with a positive and purposeful attitude 

•a very able and committed team of teachers and staff 

•good pupil progress as they move through the school 

•a broad, balanced, creative & lively curriculum 

•a fully accessible purpose built site 

•supportive Governors, Parents and LA 

•a healthy budget     

We think the best way to find out more is to come and visit. To arrange your informal visit, please contact: Zoe Simpson, School Business Manager T: 020 7639 1995 E: zoesimpson@pilgrimsway.southwark.sch.uk
