Do you believe that the most challenging, often most vulnerable students deserve an education that nurtures their talents, ignites their interests and develops their skills to lead successful, productive lives?     

Would you be relentless in ensuring that your students got the best teachers and best resources in the most effective learning environment to support them to re-engage, to take risks and to grow in confidence and self-esteem?

Olive AP Academy – Havering is looking for an exceptional individual, from any school background, who is passionate about their vision for alternative provision and has the strategic skills and expertise to deliver on our high expectations.

If you are the type of leader who is motivated to make a difference and tackles challenges effectively then this is the right role for you.

A new vision for the academy has been created. Planned £2.5million refurbishments to the current building, designed by pupils, staff, the local authority and the Olive Academies trust will provide the academy with the platform to improve quickly.

This is a key senior appointment for the recently formed but highly regarded Olive Academies multi-academy trust. You will work very closely with the CEO and play an integral role in shaping the strategic future of the academy and trust.


CONVICTION Everyone has the capacity to reach their potential.

DETERMINATION Not giving up on those who have not experienced success.

AMBITION All challenges can be overcome. Education is an important lifelong journey.

REFLECTION Learning from experiences and developing a capacity to improve further.

We want to attract inspirational colleagues who are aligned with our values and who:

  • are driven to make a difference, to overcome barriers, to be relentless in enabling all students to re-engage and make exceptional progress
  • have the ability to nurture staff and students through their day-to-day challenges while keeping a firm eye on strategic goals
  • are ready to extend the scope of their impact across two or more academies and develop an outstanding model of academy improvement in alternative provision.

We are an ambitious, committed team who support, challenge and value each other. If you’d like to be an integral part of a thriving organisation, call Adam Stanley on 07778 819105.
