Cardinal Heenan is an ambitious, successful and popular Catholic High School in North Leeds.
The school provides a focus on high achievement for all and a commitment to overcoming disadvantage, recognising talent and inspiring staff to take the school to outstanding. It is a welcoming learning environment for confident, happy and responsible young people who have high expectations for themselves and others, and who are excited by learning.
The governing body is looking to recruit a permanent Headteacher who will be able to join us in the recruitment of a Deputy Head, (our deputy will retire at the end of the academic year) and put in place a revised Senior Leadership Team. We are looking for a natural and viable leader with an inclusive approach to partnership working at every level, including within the wider community.
The school provides an outstanding opportunity for an ambitious Catholic leader who is an innovative, forward thinking educationalist ready to build on his or her successes.

The school achieved its best-ever GCSE results in 16/17, placing the school in the top 20% of schools and delivered P8 outcomes of +0.47 for all pupils, including disadvantaged pupils whose progress was higher than the national average for non-disadvantaged pupils.
