Assistant Director of Science

 Leadership L4 – L8 

Required for September 2019

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a passionate and inspirational Assistant Director of Science to join Carlton Bolling from September 2019.  

Your new school

Carlton Bolling is an Outstanding school which has been on a rapid improvement journey over recent years, with results in 2017 within the top 5% of schools nationally. This progress was recognised by Ofsted who praised the “Highly aspirational vision for the school”

Staff enjoy working at Carlton Bolling and are supported and encouraged to lead and develop their practice.  Although we are rated Outstanding, we are still moving forward at the same trajectory on our path to become one of the top 1% of schools in the country. These achievements have caught the eyes of policymakers, with the school recently being given the go-ahead to form a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT), where it will have even greater scope to develop top practice and share this expertise with other schools that join us. 

We have many exciting non-academic successes and initiatives to celebrate. This includes a purpose-built new school that provides a far more pleasant environment, giving students and staff a boost and feeling that we are special and deserve the best. Community engagement is taken very seriously, with the opening of the Boxing Academy in January 2017 and Cricket Academy which opened in January 2018.  Both are open to staff, students and the community in general, underlining our commitment to making BD3 the very best it can be. 

Your new role

This is a senior leadership role where the successful candidate will assist the Director of Science and take responsibility for helping to lead the science faculty, ensuring performance and outcomes are in line with school targets.  You will access our first class INSET training and CPD programme which we regularly evaluate the impact of our courses and use this information to plan future training so that it is bespoke to the individual.  You will possess high levels of personal commitment, the ability to communicate at all levels and have a consistent record of strong student outcomes. The ability to develop strong Teaching and Learning strategies and ensure sustained improvements are a vital ingredient for this post. At KS4 students follow the AQA trilogy or separate science specification. We are committed to developing an investigative approach to learning, with engaging lessons that offer challenge to all. 

We look forward to hearing from candidates who share our vision and are prepared to put in the effort to attain our goals. 

To have an informal, confidential discussion, to arrange a visit and to find out how to apply, please contact Paula Read at Hays Education on 0113 200 3710 or email
