Midland Academies Trust has the opportunity to invite a colleague interested in joining a knowledge focused trust to our senior team by appointing a Vice Principal for Hartshill School to start Easter 2019. This post has arisen due to the promotion of the previous post holder to headship.

You will have heard about The Midland Academies Trust, where we believe that our staff are our greatest resource. Everything we do as a Trust has to fulfil the twin aims of accelerating student progress and reducing staff workload – if it doesn’t achieve both we simply don’t do it 

We want it to be easy for our staff to help students achieve well and be prepared for a successful future. That’s why we continually review how we work and actively promote teachers as experts in their classrooms; provide a curriculum which is rich and deep in knowledge and work within a network of schools committed to using and sharing research led practice. . 

• Our students have clear classroom routines so no time is wasted 

• Our teachers give whole class feedback, not individualised marking 

• Our middle leaders focus on student learning, not data input 

• Our senior leaders manage student conduct, not our staff 

• Our faculties plan and work together on shared approaches 

• Our five year curriculum is highly ambitious and knowledge-led 

• Our staff are valued as professional experts in their field 

• Our Trust sets time for collaboration and learning from experts 

• Our annual calendar of meetings and events are released before the start of the academic year

• Our five year, knowledge-rich curriculum features common examination boards across all schools 

We love curriculum

We love young people

We work for social justice

We care for each other 

This post will suit a colleague who has had significant experience leading a large department/faculty, or leadership experience at a senior level.  We are looking for someone who shares our commitments and who wants to prepare for headship by working, not only as a Vice Principal, but also as a key member of the Trust's Senior Team.

If this sounds like you, then we look forward to hearing from you.
