• An enthusiastic and innovative team player dedicated to sharing good practice and taking full advantage of all opportunities to develop their leadership skills. 

• An inclusive individual, with high expectations of their students, who is committed to maximising rates of progress.

• Someone with a sense of humour, who understands the importance of developing a positive culture in our organisation and is totally committed to the concept of distributed leadership.

We will guarantee:

• You will be supported but challenged.

• Provided with the very best CPD on offer from the abundance of talented staff working within the school, as well as external experts seconded to work with us to maintain objectivity in school.

• Working with honest, aspirational students, who are full of character and have a lot of potential. 

• Support from creative and innovative colleagues that will ensure your professional practice continues to develop in-line with national standards.
