Vice Principal

Worcester Sixth Form CollegeWorcestershire

Worcester Sixth Form College is a successful sixth form college graded as good by Ofsted. We aspire to be the first choice for students seeking the highest quality sixth form education in Worcestershire and the surrounding areas and are currently experiencing significant growth in student numbers which we expect to maintain in future years. Our outcomes are good, with strong achievement and progression outcomes and high numbers of students gaining places at selective universities. In 2018/19, the College had the highest achievement rate of any sixth form college.

In 2019, Worcester Sixth Form College achieved academy status and forms part of the Heart of Mercia Multi-Academy Trust along with our partner, Hereford Sixth Form College. Our partnership has already brought financial benefits as well as enhanced staff development, sharing of good practice and quality improvement and we expect it to offer exciting opportunities as new partners join us.

Worcester is a great place to live and work with areas of outstanding natural beauty within easy reach. It has a vibrant sporting and cultural tradition and excellent transport links to Birmingham and London. 

Due to the retirement of our current Deputy Principal, an exciting opportunity has arisen for an exceptional person to join us, whose leadership skills, strategic vision and sound management will enhance the current success and position of the College and allow it to meet the challenges of the future.

We are seeking someone with the ability, strategic vision and strength of purpose to work alongside the College Principal, Ed Senior, in shaping the next stage of the College’s development as well as demonstrating the ambition and professional potential to progress to the role of Principal. You will have significant management experience gained in a College or secondary school, with a large sixth form and will be looking to establish the necessary track record of achievement to assume further leadership responsibility within the Heart of Mercia Multi-Academy Trust. The College will provide a stimulating, supportive and exciting environment where you can make a difference.

The primary focus of the role is on curriculum and quality improvement and will therefore suit applicants with these or related specialisms and experience. Included in the Vice Principal’s responsibilities will be to act as College nominee and to provide line management to academic Heads of Department, MIS and examinations.
