Thank you for your interest in this exciting opportunity for the position of Headteacher of a brand new school. This school will seek to transform the educational provision and the lives of pupils served by the school. The Council in partnership with the Diocese of Wrexham has worked to establish and develop a brand new 3-16 Catholic school in the town of Rhyl, Denbighshire, to replace the existing Primary and Secondary schools.

Funding has been secured by Denbighshire and the Welsh Government as part of the 21st Century Schools and Education Programme and these approvals will see £23m invested in providing the new facilities. Enabling works have started already and the main work on site started in May 2018 on the new building which will have facilities fit for learning in the 21st Century. The new building will include a chapel, four court sports hall, main hall, small hall, drama studio, all weather pitch and specialist classrooms such as music, design technology, science etc.

We are seeking a strong, inspirational leader who demonstrates both professional excellence, and a desire to instil in children of all ages the Catholic ethos and integrity. This will be a period of significant change for pupils, parents, staff and the wider community, and as such, a highly effective and successful leader is key to our success. 

How to apply: Please contact Denbighshire County Council’s Human Resources Team for an application form, and return either via email or post to Human Resources, Denbighshire County Council, PO Box 62, Ruthin, Denbighshire, LL15 9AZ, or email hrdirect@denbighshire.gov.uk.
