We are seeking to appoint an inspiring, creative and committed Assistant Headteacher as an integral part of our Senior Leadership Team. Due to the promotion of one of our very experienced Assistant Headteachers, we are looking for an exceptional leader to join our Senior Leadership Team to help move the academy from ‘good’ to ‘outstanding’.  

The specific responsibilities will be dependent on the skills and experience of the successful candidate, although it is likely to include having leadership responsibility for Intervention Strategies and academic monitoring.

We aim to recruit staff with the vision, motivation, drive and determination to ensure all our students receive a first class education and who will rise to the challenge of building on success.

In return, the successful candidate can expect: 

• Comprehensive tailored induction programme
