Principal - Gilbert Scott Primary
The Local Governing Body of Gilbert Scott Primary School and the Board of Directors of The Collegiate Trust are looking to make an appointment of Principal.
The successful candidate will join a growing multi-academy trust, and lead an exciting and rapidly improving primary school in Croydon; standards in the school are above local and national averages, reflecting the quality of teaching and support we deliver. The new Principal will be supported by a committed and very engaged LGB, as well as by our highly experienced CEO; s/he will work collaboratively with other Principals and colleagues in the Trust. We are looking to appoint an individual with an excellent understanding of teaching and learning across the primary phases, someone who can ensure our staff continue to make the difference to the lives of our pupils by inspiring all of the people within our communities.
We are very keen to meet potential candidates and have set two opportunities for you to visit the school and discuss the position with the current Executive Headteacher, Tricia Farrelly, and to tour the school; details of these are in the attached Information for Applicants.
The Collegiate Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service. Appointment will be dependent upon further health, medical and attendance checks.
