"This is a school aiming high and looking to the future"

Astrea is a national family of academies, unswerving in our ambition to raise attainment and achieve excellence for all pupils. The Trust includes schools at all stages of development. We are committed to enabling individual schools to flourish with a high degree of autonomy whilst benefiting from a strong culture of support and collaboration.

The Astrea Academy Trust has the highest expectations of pupil attainment in national assessments, but aspires to go beyond the concept of “schooling” and to educate instead, through valuing an all-round development of the individual through arts, sports, leadership opportunities, enrichment and community.

In order to deliver our mission statement we need exceptional staff across the organisation, and we believe that the quality of our staff sets us apart.

Do you want to be part of our leadership team which is passionate about making a difference to the lives of pupils?

Do you have the passion and motivation to inspire others, and the ability to lead change and deliver excellence?

If so, we are looking for a forward-thinking, inspirational leader who has a demonstrable track record of inspirational leadership and the proven ability to deliver the highest quality of teaching and learning across the school.  You will have experience of supporting schools through periods of change; specifically driving improvement through the modelling of outstanding teaching. 

The successful applicant will need the drive and enthusiasm to lead this school into the future and create a learning environment that inspires our students and helps them to achieve their full potential.

This is a challenging and exciting role and a fabulous opportunity to become part of our journey to excellence. In return we would offer a competitive salary plus pension, great career progression and development opportunities with many other benefits.

Application Process: Please send all completed applications to
