Headteacher, Fulford School and CEO designate, South York MAT
Recently named State Secondary School of the Year for the North of England, Fulford School’s sustained success speaks for itself. Our consistent high achievement is a product of motivated, curious pupils; engaged and supportive parents; and an exceptional staff team. It’s a great and rewarding place to teach, learn, and lead.
As the founding school of the South York MAT (SYMAT), Fulford also plays a key role in York’s educational ecosystem. Longstanding, mutual partnerships with the schools in our MAT have enabled us to build a truly ambitious multi-academy structure. Moreover, all our schools (as well as those intending to join) have been rated either Good or better by Ofsted. So, the foundations couldn’t be sounder.
This makes the role of Headteacher and CEO designate all the more attractive. There are few better opportunities to join an organisation that’s already performing extremely strongly, but which also has the self-awareness to know where it can improve, and the hunger to make it happen.
We’ve created this role specifically to enable the successful candidate to establish a really solid position within Fulford School and with partners across the SYMAT before you assume the additional duties of CEO. It’s tailor-made for an experienced individual with substantial experience as a Headteacher, Associate Headteacher or well-established Deputy Headteacher with whole-school responsibility and a strong track record.
An outstanding classroom practitioner, able to model and lead improvement in teaching and learning, we would also look for significant strengths in curriculum and school improvement, including performance management. A clear and positive educational philosophy, demonstrable success as a teacher and school leader, and the capacity to take on the complexities of working at system level will all be essential.
