Closing Date: Thursday, 25th February 2021

Interviews to be held w/c: 1st March 2021

We are seeking to appoint a passionate, dynamic and effective teacher to the post of Head of Year (subject specialism is flexible). Essentially, we are looking for someone who puts students’ learning and personal development at the heart of their practice. The Head of Year role is accountable for leading, managing and developing a team of year tutors, working closely with others to support students’ academic and pastoral needs.

We have a traditional pastoral structure, with Heads of Year for each year group, supported by non-teaching Assistant Heads of Year. The year teams work closely with our Emotional Health and Well-Being Champions, our Learning Support Team and with many external agencies to ensure students’ needs are met and are able to flourish in life.

Liskeard is a friendly, caring, supportive school in South-east Cornwall with people and relationships at its heart. We are proud of our school and we are relentless in our approach to make it even better. We take the education of our students very seriously and want the school to provide the best education for the community it serves.

At Liskeard we believe that when we work together we achieve more. Being part of a team encompasses a number of important values that are as important in school as they are in life.

We believe that in Team Liskeard:

  • Everyone is equal and has a voice
  • Everyone should be treated fairly and with respect
  • Everyone takes responsibility for their actions

We want our students and staff to lead happy and fulfilling lives. To achieve this, we believe the attitudes of courage, resilience and kindness are of utmost importance. With these attitudes, anything is possible.

As an 11-18 school, we are incredibly proud of our Sixth Form which is rated amongst the top 10% nationally and is one of the best performing 16-18 providers regionally.

Judged ‘Good’ by Ofsted, we are looking to appoint an outstanding colleague with a proven track record of school improvement to lead a year group and year team supporting the school on its journey to becoming Outstanding.
