Norlington School and 6th Form is a 11-16 boy’s school with a mixed 6th Form school. Over the past 7 years the school has transformed itself into one of the highest performing schools in the country and has been recognised by the Minister for State Schools on three separate occasions for student achievement.

Norlington was judged to be a 'good school' by Ofsted where;

· 'Students make excellent progress in Mathematics and Science.' 

· 'Students behave well in lessons and around the school. They enjoy coming to school.' 

· 'Leaders have a relentless drive for continuous improvement' 

The school has an excellent CPD programme and is committed to developing all staff, as we continue our journey to becoming an ‘Outstanding’ school. This includes three staff training afternoons, two department meetings and one twilight training session every 6 weeks. Lessons finish for students at 1:30pm on a Friday. 

The 6th Form opened in September 2015 and is focused on academic subjects. Currently supporting 50 students the 6th form is expected to increase in size over the next 2 years, although remaining relatively small.

We are seeking to appoint an exceptional practitioner who is innovative, motivated and enthusiastic and able to lead staff in delivering an outstanding 6th Form experience to our students. This is an exciting opportunity for someone ready to take on a senior leadership role who has the expertise and vision to develop a key post 16. 

The successful applicant will become a full member of the Senior Leadership Team having further agreed whole school responsibilities. Successful applicants will be expected to teach and this will form a key element of the recruitment process.

For September 2018 we require:

  • A leader with knowledge of all aspects of leading Post 16 education who is passionate and enthusiastic about      creating the best opportunities for all students.
  • An innovative, dynamic and creative person with excellent interpersonal skills.
  • An excellent teacher commitment to sharing good practice across the whole of school.
