The children, staff and Governors of Hanbury Primary School are looking for an exceptional leader to continue the excellent work delivered by our retiring head teacher. This is a good school with outstanding SMSC. The school has excellent outdoor facilities and a strong link to the Arts.

Hanbury Primary School is a caring, nurturing school where all children are valued as individuals and encouraged to achieve their full potential.

  • Can communicate and deliver their vision for our school

In return we can offer:

  • Well behaved, kind, caring, happy and hard-working pupils who are enthusiastic about learning
  • Highly talented, dedicated and motivated staff
  • A supportive and active Governing Body

Our ideal candidate will have previous experience as a senior leader and be able to demonstrate effective whole-school management. If you have high expectations for pupils’ personal and academic development, and are an outstanding communicator with strategic direction we would like to hear from you
