Contract type: Full Time
Salary: Undisclosed
Contract term: Permanent

Are you passionate about achieving outstanding teaching and learning in every classroom? Do you want to inspire children through engaging curriculums, and do you excel at developing your teaching staff to be the best they can possibly be? If so, then this could be the role for you!

We are looking for a passionate individual who relishes the opportunity to lead in all areas of education and is driven by establishing a culture of pupil and staff happiness, safety and personal growth.

The E-ACT leadership model allows Headteachers to focus on what they do best – improving the performance of staff, pupils and the academy’s reach in the local community. The operational management of the school is run by a Regional Operations Director, meaning that they will be responsible for budget management, estates management, line management of operational support staff or ICT in the academy.

If you are an established Headteacher who is excited by our model of leadership then we want to hear from you!

This is an exciting opportunity to join an ambitious team at the heart of the local community.  We are a leader in the education sector for our outstanding benefits including a generous maternity and paternity policy, and opportunities for flexible working.
