At Kettlethorpe High School, achievement is everything.
For every child.
For many people, “every child matters” is a slogan. For us, it is an ethos. We believe that every pupil – irrespective of background or ability – should enjoy an exceptional education, becoming the best person they can be. That is why we champion innovation in teaching and learning, and why we offer a remarkably rich programme of extracurricular activities, spanning sport, music, culture and charity fundraising. It is also why we need you to take achievement at Key Stage 3 to the next level.
Leading our non-teaching year managers and their academic colleagues, you will make certain that our pupils come first in everything we do and enjoy every day here to the full. It is not just about exam results, important as they are – we want to create rounded human beings with a passion for life and all its possibilities, and we will look to you to unlock our pupils’ potential and fire their enthusiasm.
We are a large, successful, growing school with excellent resources, including strong alternative curriculum arrangements to meet pupils’ individual needs, so you will be building on considerable success. With a deep commitment to reflective learning and teaching practice and strong emphasis on professional development, we will give you all the support you require to mould your team into first-class practitioners who can create exceptional futures. We will also give you everything you need to accelerate your journey into senior management – so we are looking for someone with real potential.
Your career to date will have embraced both hands-on teaching and academic leadership, giving you the skills to devise and implement an inspiring strategic development plan for Key Stage 3. Team-oriented, resilient and above all personable and engaging, you will be ready to do whatever it takes to transform the way we think and work – and enhance outcomes for our pupils in the broadest sense.
In return, we can offer you an exciting future in a school where learning is central to life. You will also benefit from an enviable location, just outside Leeds and within easy reach of Sheffield and many other locations via the M1, offering you the opportunity to relocate almost anywhere within Yorkshire’s stunning countryside.
