Start date September 2019

We are looking for an energetic, passionate and hardworking Assistant Headteacher to join our New Senior Leadership Team at Northstowe Secondary College.

Applicants must be able to teach English, Maths, Science, Geography or MFL due to the teaching demands of a small start-up school.

Northstowe Secondary College is a brand new secondary school at the heart of the Northstowe Education Campus, due to open to Year 7 in September 2019.  The College will become the cornerstone of the Northstowe Learning Community, which will in time include a primary school, a special educational needs school and a sixth-form college. The new secondary school will feature state-of-the-art facilities for science, catering and hospitality, the arts, sports and leisure, forming a comprehensive offer for our students and also our local community. 

It is an exciting time to join our team as we embark on the journey to provide world class education to the developing community.  You will be part of an experienced team that is creating an inclusive, innovative and aspirational learning environment for the young people and families it serves.

This position would be equally suitable for those wishing to take a step up from middle management or someone with previous experience as an Assistant Headteacher.

Our ideal candidate will:

• Have a passionate and uncompromising commitment to pupil achievement

• Be a believer in the potential of young people, with a mind-set that all children can experience success

• Possess outstanding communication skills and personal integrity

• Be open to collaboration between all schools on the Northstowe Education Campus

Senior leaders at Northstowe Secondary College can look forward to a high quality job package and a wide range of CPD opportunities offered by our trust and its teaching school status, along with promotion opportunities within the wider family of CMAT schools. 

We can offer you 

• A post with the potential for future progression both within this role and the wider trust 

• The support of the wider trust network of experts and access to informal and formal professional development

• A successful teaching school within the CMAT trust and with a strong track record of staff development

• Employee Assistance Programme to help support you in everyday life as well as career decisions

• Northstowe Secondary College will be a brand new state of the art building, which will afford us an excellent working and learning environment
