Our wonderful Headteacher is retiring and we need someone to lead our unique school family.

    then please come visit us and see if this could be the job for you!


Kingsleigh Primary is a large school which has worked hard to build a strong reputation and is very much a part of the local community. The school is a thriving and fun place to work and learn and we would love to have the chance to show you around our fabulous facilities.

We are looking for a Headteacher who:

  • Has experience of leadership across the primary phase. 
  • Can motivate and encourage people to go the extra mile for the pupils and families of our school.
  • Can facilitate and inspire the continuation of a vibrant, stimulating and memorable curriculum whilst continuing to maintain high expectations of achievement for all pupils. 
  • Wants to continue to establish and build strong links beyond the school and in the local  community.
  • Cares for and wants to nurture the development and well-being of children and staff in their school.

In return we can offer:

  • A genuinely happy and friendly school with a true family feel - come and visit us if you think it sounds too good to be true!
  • Devoted and flexible staff who are always willing to go the extra mile and give anything a go - we even turned a double decker bus into a reading den; that’s got to be worth checking out.
  • Spirited, kind and eager children who love their school and work hard.
  • A school that has been on a journey and is in a strong position with a firmly rooted foundation for someone to lead from.
  • A brilliant part of the country to live in with glorious beaches a stone’s throw away in one direction and the New Forest in the other.
  • A fun place to work where there really never is a dull moment-  have a look at our website and YouTube channel to see what we mean - www.kingsleighprimary.co.uk.
