Are you looking for a new challenge with a supportive team and children with huge potential? If so, then Courthouse Junior School has the perfect opportunity for you. We are seeking an inspirational leader to take Courthouse from ‘Requires Improvement’ to ‘Good’ and beyond, providing a school that fully serves our local community.

We believe that Courthouse Junior School has exceptional promise and potential. We are a large local authority maintained junior school in Maidenhead with a mixed three form intake. The governors are determined to find an enthusiastic, ambitious and inspiring new Headteacher who has the vision and drive to improve our school and develop our local partnerships.
We have dedicated and hard-working teachers led by an interim Executive Team, fully committed to further improving standards of teaching and learning. We are seeking a new leader who will drive standards forward and help all of our pupils and staff to fulfil their potential. Whilst Ofsted has identified many challenges for our school, they were impressed by the attitudes of our pupils

“Pupils behave well and have good attitudes to learning. They are enthusiastic about school.”

“Pupils are considerate of others and are developing into responsible young citizens.” (Ofsted, 2017).

Courthouse Junior School prides itself on its pastoral care and prowess in sport and performing arts. Our pupils excel in their extra-curricular activities, including a fabulous choir, orchestra and award winning sports teams. Our new Headteacher will embrace this ethos as well as enabling pupils to strive for academic achievement.

You will be supported by an enthusiastic and committed staff and governing body. We are strong advocates for a positive work/life balance and manageable workloads across the school.

If you are an experienced Assistant Head, Deputy Head or Head Teacher with a strong track record of success, and you have the vision and ambition to lead our school, this could be your ideal next step. With exciting challenges we are certain that our new Headteacher will be very happy at Courthouse Junior School.
