Assistant Headteacher – Teaching, Learning and Assessment (TLA) and emerging technologies

Woking High SchoolSurrey

Woking High School is a high achieving, oversubscribed Academy with an outstanding team of staff, highly committed to ensuring all young people have access to the highest levels of education.   

The ambitious senior team is looking to build leadership capacity from September 2021 which will provide an exceptional opportunity for a motivated, inspirational teacher and creative leader who is passionate about outstanding education. 

You will join a team of ambitious senior and middle leaders at an exciting time as we seek to build leadership capacity.  You will be an integral part of the Senior Leadership Team, providing a high level of strategic, managerial and operational direction for the school, particularly in relation to Teaching, Learning, Assessment and emerging technologies. You will have the opportunity to impact significantly on the future direction and outcomes of the school.  

We are looking to welcome a leader who will have the tenacity to turn ideas into reality. You should therefore have demonstrable experience in improving the quality of provision in an area you have led, in either a middle or senior leadership role, along with a desire and determination to improve the educational experience of all students. 

The successful candidate must be able to demonstrate excellent management, inter-personal and organisational skills with an ability to support teams in working together, showing commitment to ensuring equality of opportunity and accountability for all.  

We believe in life-long learning for all and we pride ourselves on our caring ethos with a strong and genuine focus on staff wellbeing. We work hard to look after our pool of talented staff who are encouraged to grow, develop and work collaboratively. This post offers an outstanding opportunity for professional development in a supportive and highly collaborative environment, both partaking in CPD sessions and delivering them.  

We are very proud that the 2019 Ofsted report highlighted that our "curriculum is ambitious and well designed", but more importantly that our students enjoy coming to school because it "feels like a family"; our ultimate goal is to ensure that Woking High School students are happy, well-rounded people with excellent academic success to allow them to pursue their ambitions for the future.  

Due to the lockdown, we will not be offering tours at the school on this occasion, but our Open Evening video, which can be accessed via this link https://vimeo.com/466512413 , does provide an opportunity to view the school site in action. 

Closing date for applications:   2nd March 2021 at 10.00am

Woking High School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful candidate will be required to undertake an enhanced DBS check.

Woking High School is committed to providing all staff with continued professional development to support and develop them in their careers.
