Job overview

Head of School – South Hunsley School and Sixth Form College

Negotiable Package

South Hunsley is an outstanding education provider with high aspirations for delivering a school experience that helps all our students reach their full potential. We pride ourselves on the fact that we are the highest performing school in the East Riding and we believe that our workforce is fundamental to our success. South Hunsley became an academy in April 2011 and was judged by OFSTED to be outstanding in 2013. In 2015 we became a multi-academy trust to enable us to open a primary free school, Hunsley Primary, to support the increasing numbers of families moving into the area due to housing developments. Malet Lambert School joined us in February 2016, followed by Driffield School and Sixth Form in February 2017. Cavendish Primary School will join the Trust in February 2018.

South Hunsley is a very large, heavily over-subscribed secondary school with over 2100 students on roll, including 450 in the sixth form. We are fortunate to work with fantastic students, an outstanding staff and supportive parents. In each of the last 3 years, our Progress 8 figure has been in the range of +0.49 to +0.59 and we have won the Pupil Premium Award for Yorkshire and the Humber in 2 of the last 4 years. Our sixth form goes from strength to strength and this summer we were placed in the top 10% of providers according to ALPS. We have an outstanding programme of personal development and extra-curricular activities and in 2016 we were rated as the third best state school for sport. South Hunsley is a Teaching School – the Wolds TSA – and we have also become a School-Centred Initial Teacher Training provider.

This is an exciting and challenging opportunity to lead an outstanding school in the next stage of its development. You will also be part of an outstanding Trust as you drive the quality of education provided at South Hunsley and ensure the future success of all our students. As Head of School, you will be working with a strong Trust Board and leadership team with a proven track record of success and you will liaise closely with other Heads of School within the Trust.
