It is with great pleasure that I introduce myself as the Executive Headteacher of Fullhurst Community College. Thank you for expressing your interest in becoming a part of our school community.

Fullhurst Community College is committed to creating a supportive and inclusive learning environment for our 1500 students, aged 11-16 years. We take pride in offering the highest quality education and personalised learning pathways for every student, a commitment recognised in our recent Ofsted Inspection (September 2023): "Dedicated staff at the school have worked hard to create an inclusive culture."

Our primary objective is to shape successful, confident, and responsible individuals, equipped with both academic qualifications and essential personal and social skills. Acknowledged by Ofsted, our broad and varied curriculum ensures that all students have opportunities to realise their aspirations. “The school has planned an ambitious curriculum to meet the needs of all pupils."

The core values of Respect, Kindness, Determination, and Unity are integral to our success in enabling students to exceed their potential. “These values underpin the strong relationships pupils have with staff and each other. Pupils respect diversity.” (Ofsted September 2023)

Our commitment to excellence extends to equipping our staff with the necessary tools and materials for delivering high-quality education from the start of their career.

Our state-of-the-art facilities at Fosse and Imperial Campuses cater to the diverse needs of our student body, contributing to our 'good' rating across all areas by Ofsted (September 2023).

If you are enthusiastic about contributing to our ongoing success and making a positive impact on the lives of young people, we warmly welcome your application.

We look forward to the possibility of welcoming you to our team of dedicated and outstanding staff.
