Following our successful Free School bid, the Dixons Academies Trust is seeking to appoint an inspirational and experienced individual to develop our new shared Dixons Sixth Form. This is an exciting and unique opportunity for an exceptionally talented and ambitious leader to work closely with an Executive Principal to start up and significantly contribute to the leadership of a sixth form centre that will compete with the country’s top performing providers.
Working for the Dixons Trust, you will fully align to our vision and values and have a strong commitment to doing whatever it takes to secure the best possible outcomes for our students. You will be firmly committed to providing an education that will give the young people of Bradford every opportunity to confidently apply and secure places at top universities.
Our family of schools is comprised of primary and secondary, and includes both new start-ups and sponsored academies. Our diversity is a real strength of our model; strong collaboration is balanced with the individual freedom to innovate. We have a solid platform upon which we continue to build; our Trust will continue to expand from 4,900 students now to over 8,000 by 2018.
Opening in September 2019, this Free School start-up will initially offer over 300 places to Dixons Academies students and (when full) will have a roll of 880 with the potential for further development and expansion on the site. Many places will be taken up by students from Dixons City, Kings, McMillan and Trinity. However, there will be places offered to other students from across the city who secure the correct entrance requirements and are fully signed up to our ethos of high expectations and relentless ambition.
The successful candidate will be an experienced senior leader, or exceptional middle leader, and have a secure knowledge of all aspects of working within this sector. They will be able to demonstrate and evidence an uncompromising commitment to providing an outstanding education and have the ability to motivate and inspire staff and students.
An information evening will be held at 5.30pm on Tuesday 17 April at Dixons McMillan Academy. Prospective applicants will have the opportunity to meet the CEO, Executive Principal and other Dixons Principals.
Please apply using the Dixons Academies application form and include a formal letter which addresses the person specification with particular emphasis on measurable impact. We are looking for an August start so that the successful candidate can be involved in all aspects of planning in readiness for opening in September 2019. When appointed, the successful candidate will also sit on and contribute to the leadership team of one our existing academies.
The Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Successful applicants will need to undertake a DBS enhanced clearance.
