Within the newly formed Dales Academies Trust, All Saints is an ‘Outstanding (Ofsted 2015, SIAMS 2014) 11-16 Church of England Academy with close to 730 pupils; it is located in Ingleby Barwick in the Borough of Stockton-on-Tees within historic North Yorkshire.
With the shared involvement of every individual, we aspire to be a confident, outward-looking Christian community in which every member:
- enjoys creative, dynamic and reflective learning
- is supported, challenged and equipped for the future
- values and takes responsibility for themselves and others
- relies on and builds supportive and lasting relationships
Our Christian tradition and values, as expressed through hope, forgiveness, respect and loving care, is made real in our daily life; the five key outcomes of ‘Every Child Matters’ and the Five Marks of Mission remain at the heart of everything we do.
The establishment of the Trust, expansion of the school, development of a leisure centre on its site and maintenance of the highest standards of education, are the key features of a ‘gear shift’ in the history of the academy; the Trust Board is seeking to appoint a proven leader to take on the challenges and opportunities that this presents.

- relentless in their pursuit of the best outcomes for all.
- adept in balancing appropriately the operational and strategic demands of the role.
- experienced in, and committed to, developing and nurturing collaborative partnerships both within the local community and across the wider Trust area.
- committed to the principles of appropriate accountability seen as a framework in which to achieve excellence for all.
- consistently modelling the behaviour expected from staff and pupils.
- passionate in developing a learning experience that genuinely meets the needs of all learners.
- ‘scanning the horizon’ to ensure the curriculum and learning experiences on offer ensures pupils are best prepared for Post 16 education in whatever form it may take.
- a team builder and effective communicator.
