• Excellent communication skills
• Ability and willingness to play a full role in the team
• Minimum Grade C GCSE (or equivalent) qualifications generally and specifically in English/Literacy and Maths/Numeracy
The successful candidate will have either previous experience in a similar role or will have transferrable skills and experience and be excited at the opportunity of taking on a role within this key area.
Our school is ‘Good’ poised to be ‘Outstanding’ very soon. We are a vibrant, oversubscribed 11 to 18 comprehensive school with excellent GCSE results across all subjects; we are recognised as one of the highest performing schools in the region in terms of Key Stage 4 outcomes. Our A level results and destinations are equally impressive, with the school placed in the top 2.5% for performance nationally (according to DFE Figures) and over 92% of all students gaining entrance to their university or apprenticeship of choice.
We are committed to professional development for all staff regardless of role. We have an innovative staff development programme, which truly empowers staff to take control of their own professional development. For those striving for career development, we run annual middle and senior leadership development programmes. Regardless of what point you are at in your career and whatever your aspirations may be, Penistone Grammar School can support you to achieve them.
