Primary Leader – Teaching, Learning, Assessment & Curriculum (L16 – L20) in our 3-16 through school

To start in April 2018 At Holy Trinity, the leadership team, staff and governors are completely focused on nurturing each individual in order that they reach their full potential. We are determined to raise standards for our pupils and to develop independent, aspiring and caring young people. 

You will be joining a school at a time of innovation, development and rapid improvement, building on our strong foundation of care, commitment and challenge. Staff are valued and supported to grow as professionals and students to aspire to achieve at the highest level. Outstanding relationships underpin our cohesive and forward looking community. Staff and pupils are proud to be part of our school. 

Holy Trinity is a 3 – 16 Catholic and Church of England through school which opened in September 2012 in a purpose-built, state of the art building. We have a 470-place primary phase and a 700-place secondary phase. Our 3 – 16 through-school status offers exciting and innovative learning opportunities which enhance progress and create a seamless transition between Key Stages 2 & 3.  

Our Catholic and Church of England values form our distinctive Christian ethos, and this guides and supports everything we do in school. The successful candidate will be supportive of our Christian ethos and will be a practising member of the Catholic Church, of the Church or England or of a church in communion with the Church of England. 

This is a truly exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic, experienced and ambitious teacher to lead development of teaching and learning across the primary phase.  As part of a supportive Senior Leadership Team, you will work closely with the Secondary phase teaching and learning lead to ensure that the curriculum and teaching approaches are progressive and coherent across all phases.  You will be accountable for the development and performance of the staff within the primary phase, working through key stage co-ordinators and subject leaders to develop and embed consistently high quality teaching, leading to excellent outcomes.  

We are looking for an outstanding teacher with proven leadership experience and a passion for the development of teaching and learning.  The experience of teaching in more than one key stage would be beneficial; however a commitment to acquire the necessary knowledge of the early years through to year 6 curricula will be required.  

This role is unique and would suit a talented professional committed to teaching and learning and aspiring to take steps towards headship.  

An enhanced DBS check is required for this post.  The successful candidate will be required to complete a Disclosure & Barring Services form in line with Section 115 of The Police Act 1997. 

Further information and application forms are available online at  

All application forms should be returned to Holy Trinity marked for the attention of Mr D. Lodge (Business Manager) -
