Specific responsibilities negotiable for the right candidate
We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic, creative and dynamic individual to join our current Leadership Team and play a pivotal role as we drive our school improvement strategies forward.
This is an exciting opportunity for someone who is either an experienced school leader, or who has significant, successful middle leadership experience and is ready to take the next step in their career, to join a vibrant and outward-looking school in Barnstaple, an ancient market town in close proximity to North Devon’s famous beaches. We currently have approximately 1300 students on roll.
The successful candidate will be an enthusiastic and highly motivated teacher with a proven track record of leading successful school improvement strategies. They will have the advantage of:
- working alongside our highly committed, professional and dedicated team
- working in the context of a school where behaviour is good and students are keen to learn
- working as part of a Multi-Academy Trust in which staff development and CPD are given high priority, leading to outstanding opportunities for CPD and career development
You will be someone with a clear vision for how to enable student progress and a passion for changing young lives for the better. You must have high expectations of yourself, your colleagues and your students, and the skills to ensure that everyone seeks to meet those expectations. You will be committed to creating a stimulating learning environment which challenges everyone to achieve the highest standards. You must be highly organised, with the ability to establish effective learning opportunities and deliver outstanding lessons, encouraging our students to be the best they can.
An ability to teach a core subject (English, Maths or Science) would be desirable, but is not essential.
If you have a growth mindset combined with the ability to inspire, motivate, challenge and support students and colleagues alike, we’d love to hear from you.
