  • Be a dynamic and innovative leader with a forward thinking and committed approach
  • Set high standards and expectations of pupil achievement and behaviour
  • Take pride in academic excellence, whilst maintaining our commitment to an enriched curriculum 
  • Be ready to work with parents and other stakeholders to build the school’s standing within the local community
  • Have a successful track record at either Head or Deputy level
