Following the expansion of our Multi Academy Trust and the promotion of current SLT, we are pleased to be able to offer two colleagues the opportunity to join our highly successful school, which continues to have a very high profile both locally and nationally. We are looking to appoint two inspiring and highly capable Assistant Principals from September 2017. The successful candidates will already have proven ability as leaders, and will have the skills and abilities to enable them to secure incremental improvements in an already high-performing and extremely aspirational environment. You will join us in our new £20million building and enjoy first class working facilities, in a school with highly committed and ambitious staff, supportive parents, and students who are keen to learn and who aspire to achieve the highest outcomes. 

You will be an outstanding classroom practitioner who consistently demonstrates the highest standards of delivery, someone who is committed to a cycle of continuous improvement across all key stages and who has a robust understanding of the strategies required to achieve this. The successful candidates must be able to lead and inspire staff and students alike.

The successful candidates will:

  • be innovative and strategic thinkers 
  • be outstanding practitioners
  • lead by example and act as strong role models
  • have an unfailingly positive, can do attitude with staff and students
  • be able to demonstrate exceptional leadership and management skills
  • have a proven track record of achieving outstanding student achievement both through their own practice and by leading other staff
  • be an effective team player and value every aspect of the life of the school
  • have outstanding interpersonal skills with the ability to inspire students and staff
  • be active learners, who constantly strive to improve, with the desire to      progress

In return, Goffs can provide:

  • state of the art working facilities, coupled with  a forward looking and innovative working environment in a highly oversubscribed school
  • a highly collegiate and supportive, but mutually challenging senior team
  • outstanding career development and future promotion opportunities
  • the opportunity to work across more than one school and context through our Multi Academy Trust 
  • a dedicated and highly professional and supportive Governing Body
  • the opportunity to work with highly professional, committed and ambitious colleagues across the community
  • a school described by Ofsted as being one where “learning in lessons is good and frequently outstanding. Students work together exceptionally well,” and where “students are overwhelmingly enthusiastic about school.”

To request an application pack please contact Tracey Backman, HR Manager, on 01992 424200 ext 220 or Only applications on the school application form can be considered. Goffs is committed to equal opportunities, safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment.
