Whitehill Primary School is a serially “Good” school in what has been an historically challenging context. The current Headteacher is moving to the Headship of Gravesend Grammar School, a different post within the Trust, and we are looking to appoint someone with experience and the personal qualities to lead the school on the next part of our journey to become “Outstanding”. Over the last three years, following a period of turbulence, the school has been transformed under the leadership of the current Head and with the commitment of the staff, and is now ready to take the next steps.

The school needs someone who can

· lead by example with enthusiasm and creativity
