The opportunity

In 2020, NULS’ exceptional results of 74% Grade 7-9 at GCSE with 37% Grade 9, and 89% A*-B at Advanced Level with 68% A*-A, not only led in Staffordshire once again but built upon the standards that have acquired the school a Top 50 ranking in national league tables.

Prospective candidates will already be able to demonstrate considerable leadership experience, with this role suiting ambitious candidates who may aspire to Deputy Headship in the future.
