Senior Leadership in our Trust is forward thinking, outward looking.

As a result of continuing growth in student numbers, as well as offering increasing levels of external school to school support, we are seeking to appoint a senior leader to enhance secondary senior leadership capacity in our Trust. 

RSA Academy Arrow Vale is an ‘outstanding’ school in all categories (Ofsted - May 2014). We are a 13-19 comprehensive school with 700 students on roll. As a member of the Family of RSA Academies and as part of the Central RSA Academies Trust, we work closely with three other local schools providing seamless education for all students age 3-19. We work especially closely with Ipsley CE RSA Academy, our neighbouring 9-13 middle school with 600 pupils on roll.

Social justice through exceptional schools

The Trust is keen to appoint an Assistant Principal with proven qualities in both teaching and leadership, to join a strong leadership team in our rapidly improving schools. 

We are seeking someone with drive and ambition to complement the skill-set of the leadership team. This is an exciting opportunity for a successful, experienced professional with Middle Leadership experience. 

The full remit of this post will be based on the appointed candidate’s experience, skills and knowledge, with applications especially welcome from candidates with successful leadership experience in one or more of the following (but non-exhaustive) areas: 

· Pupil attendance, behaviour and personal development

· Assessment, data and reporting

· Curriculum and assessment

We are looking for candidates with a proven record of impact and success in achieving progress for students as well as strategic vision and commitment. The successful candidate will also have an understanding of the wider role of our schools in the community and excellent interpersonal and teamwork skills, and be capable of leading staff through change that will benefit learners.

The Trust is committed to providing strong professional development support for all colleagues who work with us.
