HMC, co-educational, Catholic senior day school with two junior schools numbering over 1300 pupils across the Foundation.  

We are seeking to appoint a dynamic, creative and inspiring Assistant Head (Teaching and Learning) to our Senior Leadership Team from September 2018 to support and develop pupils and teaching staff across the school.  

The post holder will have had proven success as a middle leader and will be able and prepared to inspire pupils and colleagues alike both by example and through carefully researched and executed initiatives. Not only will he/she will be an outstanding classroom practitioner across the age and ability range but they will also have a track record of developing and improving the teaching of others to the highest level. The post holder will work closely with other members of the Senior Leadership Team and Heads of Department as well as teaching and support colleagues more generally. The role represents an excellent stepping stone to Deputy Headship, providing the successful candidate with the opportunity to lead on a wide variety of whole school initiatives.  

The Assistant Head (Teaching and Learning) will be responsible for researching, designing and implementing strategies to enable the highest possible standard of teaching and learning throughout the school. He/she will be absolutely committed to ensuring that great teaching is delivered throughout the school and that it leads to pupils’ academic achievements being the very best that they can be.  

The Assistant Head (Teaching and Learning) will join the two Deputy Heads (Pastoral and Academic) and the two Assistant Heads (Co-curricular and Director of Digital Strategy) in reporting to the Headmaster and will be line-managed by the Deputy Head (Academic). He/she will be on a significantly reduced timetable, reflecting the importance of the position. We are looking for a person who will work well with the existing members of the Senior Leadership Team and so the appointment will be made without regard to academic subject specialism. This is a superb opportunity for a person with drive and ambition to make their mark in a thriving and successful independent school.
