Start date: January 2020
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: L17 – L23 (£62,438 to £71,836)
Contract term: Permanent

Contract Type: Permanent (initial part time or secondment working arrangements considered) Location: Harrow
Accountable to: Hujjat School Trust Board

Imagine developing and leading a brand-new Free School infused with positivity, creativity and passion for learning; a school with a mission to build a more inclusive future drawing on the shared values and educational aspirations that bring us together; a school where children can indulge their curiosity, develop a lifelong love for learning and build the foundation from which they can grow to become ethical, responsible and inspirational members of society.

Hujjat Primary School is scheduled to open in September 2020 and we are seeking a Headteacher to play an instrumental part in shaping the school prior to its opening, and forging its place in the community thereafter. Whilst the school will be anchored by the inclusive core Islamic values, faith of a particular kind is not necessary.

We are looking for an individual who has:

  • Experience of effective senior leadership
  • A proven track of record of teaching and curriculum excellence
  • Full understanding and commitment to safeguarding all members of the school community
  • Sound knowledge of current educational legislation, policy and guidance
  • An understanding of budgeting and financial management
  • A commitment to nurturing and valuing both pupils and staff in order to achieve at the highest levels
  • Ability to work successfully with a range of stakeholders but especially parents and the community
  • A clear plan for creating a culture of high expectation and generating the best possible outcomes.


If you are ready for a truly unique challenge in which you will have the opportunity to grow and develop the school from the outset, build the team and services around you necessary to secure success, and work within the supportive framework of the Board and other stakeholders, then this is the ideal post for you.
