Trinity Academy Sowerby Bridge is an ambitious and inclusive 11-16 school that has 800 pupils on roll and is over-subscribed in years 7, 8 and 9.  Following a period of support from Trinity MAT, the school formally joined the Trust in 2018.  There has since been significant improvement in outcomes, meaning the academy can now be recognised as one of the most improved schools in the country.  Aspirations and ambitions are high; however, the school is determined not to rest on its laurels and is continually striving for ways to better serve the students.  It is now seeking to appoint an exceptional Assistant Principal to be part of that and to provide the strategic leadership for all aspects of Behaviour and Attendance. 

The school is committed to providing outstanding pastoral care for its students and has invested significantly in establishing and developing a committed and hardworking pastoral support team, guided by the core values of Empathy, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility, which permeate every aspect of school life.  This is a fantastic opportunity for a high-performing individual with the strategic vision to further raise standards of student attainment and achievement across the academy, providing strong leadership for the pastoral team and taking responsibility for student attendance. 

We have already invested heavily in our pastoral team, which now includes the following positions: 

  • Two Senior Leaders with responsibility for pastoral care  
  • Education Welfare Officer  
  • Lead Attendance Officer (vacancy) 
  • Attendance Officer  
  • Attendance Administrator (vacancy – new position) 
  • Family Intervention Worker 
  • Child Protection Officer 
  • Five Year Leaders 
  • A Behaviour Support Officer 
  • EAL Engagement Officer 

If you are a senior leader in a secondary setting, with the vision to drive the strategic direction and development of the academy’s student attendance and behaviour, this role offers an outstanding opportunity to play a key role in the further development of Trinity Academy Sowerby Bridge.  You must be fully committed to optimising the opportunities that are available to children and young people, secure in the knowledge that you will be joining an ambitious forward-thinking Academy Trust.  The successful candidate must be passionate about improving students’ life chances through the provision of the highest quality of education and committed to achieving excellent results for the students.  You must have a strong work ethic and high expectations of yourself and others, with the ability to lead staff and students in realising those expectations.
