Leadership Pay Scale 5-9

Closing date: Thursday 15 April – 9am

Start Date: 1 September 2021


North Huddersfield Trust School is recognised by Ofsted as a 'Good' school which is outstanding in its work around students' personal development, well-being, safety and security.  We continually drive forward standards and are passionate about maximising the potential in all.  Our caring and nurturing approach to education within and beyond the classroom contribute to what makes our school a special place both to work and to learn.


We place great value on the fulfilment and well-being of our colleagues; our successes to date are in no small part down to their hard work, commitment and determination and as a relatively new school, our growing student roll enables us to provide opportunities for both personal and career development.


We are seeking to appoint a talented individual with a flair for leadership and innovation, as well as a clear commitment to driving progress and raising standards across the curriculum. Applications are open to suitably qualified and experienced colleagues from all subject areas.  The successful candidate will demonstrate an excellent understanding of the highest quality classroom practice, exemplary and transferrable subject knowledge and curriculum awareness, a robust understanding of data and its application to bridge gaps in performance as well as a passion for developing the best in others.  It is essential that you possess and expect exceptionally high standards in the classroom and are an enthusiastic educationalist capable of providing aspirational leadership aligned to our school’s philosophy.


Given the current status of schools in dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic, we are unable to accommodate visits to school.  If you would like to arrange an informal discussion of the role please contact our recruitment partner Paula Read at Hays, telephone 0113 2003710 or email paula.read@hays.com.  


Applications should be returned to Paula Read at Hays Education by email to paula.read@hays.com.


Closing date for completed applications is 9am on Thursday 15 April 2021 with interviews planned for the following week. The date and format of any subsequent interview will be confirmed following shortlisting and in line with government guidance in dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic.  


We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  All staff are subject to an enhanced DBS check.  A conviction may not exclude candidates from appointment but will be considered as part of the recruitment process.
