Assistant Headteacher in charge of Maths, ICT and Business Studies
Are you truly passionate about high-quality learning experiences for young people?
Are you driven by students making exceptional progress as people as well as learners?
Are you an outstanding practitioner with a proven track record of impactful leadership?
Are you able to inspire, support, challenge and enthuse colleagues as well as students to be the best that they can be and achieve amazing things together?
Are you now ready to put your leadership skills to the test at senior leadership level in a highly over-subscribed, successful, dynamic, happy school renowned for its holistic care for, and development of both students and staff?
Can you see yourself working at whole-school level, really making a difference to the opportunities and life chances of a genuinely wonderful group of fine young people whose behaviour Ofsted described as "exemplary"?
If you answered ‘Yes’ to all of the above, we would really like to meet you to discuss an exciting new role at Langley. We are seeking someone with the right leadership and teaching qualities, the drive, the knowledge, the ambition and the energy to take our Maths, ICT & Business Studies Faculty on the next stage of its learning journey, whilst at the same time building on existing skills and developing new ones at senior leadership level, in preparation for further career enhancement in the future.
In view of the forthcoming retirement of the current long-serving Head of Faculty, the Governors wish to appoint an ambitious and high performing Assistant Headteacher to lead our large and successful Mathematics, ICT & Business Studies Faculty as well as undertaking other responsibilities related to senior leadership, dependent on your particular areas of expertise.
This is an excellent opportunity for an ambitious and outstanding teacher with experience of effectively leading change .
The Mathematics, ICT & Business Studies Faculty at Langley is a strong team made up of a mix of experienced and skilled teachers who are united in their passionate desire to do the best by the students they teach. The successfully appointed candidate will have the opportunity to build upon the past successes of the Faculty whilst creating a vision for its future direction at Langley, as well as further extending their leadership experience. We can offer the necessary support and experience to enable you to develop the skills required for the next stage in your career.
Langley is a wonderful school to work at and learn in and, as our recent Ofsted report suggests: 'Pupils are thoroughly prepared for life in modern Britain' at our school, where the holistic approach to child centred learning is valued as highly as the outcomes they eventually achieve at the end of their time with us.
Our school’s fundamental principles focus on supporting, challenging and inspiring the whole Langley community ‘to be the best that we can be’. But these are not simply words on paper. Students, staff and governors genuinely give all they can, to bring those principles to life every day. Examinations are critically important, of course, and our students achieve superbly well in them, but we truly believe in developing young people to deal with the tests of their lifetime, not merely to endure a lifetime of tests. Everyone who visits us comments on the special ethos of our school – ‘the Langley way’.
