For April 2022

Could you be our new Assistant Headteacher?

We are seeking to increase the capacity of our Leadership team so we can drive improvement in a number of key areas. You may already be in a senior leadership position, or you may be an experienced curriculum leader with a track-record of success who is ready to have a whole school impact. Our next senior leader will be able to lead on improving outcomes and be able to use their experience to focus on the academic monitoring of pupils, including having parental meetings to improve the progress of underachievers.

As the newest member of our team, you will be learning what it truly means to be a leader from an inspirational team with a history of leading outstanding provision at our school and transforming underperforming schools.

Our new Assistant Headteacher will, of course, be an exceptional teacher in their own right. A leader cannot credibly evaluate the performance of others without having an incisive knowledge of ‘what works’ in the classroom themselves. They will share our relentless drive for improvement, using the latest research to further improve the daily classroom experience of our nearly 1600 pupils.

We invite you to join us and model best practice, drive whole school priorities and take our success further. If you have the talent, ideas and vision to be part of our future, we would love to hear from you.
