New school - unique opportunity 

Grove Academy is an exciting new free school which opened in September 2017 and is the first all-through school to open in Slough, providing seamless high quality education for 4 to 18 year olds. This is a unique opportunity to work with us to shape the Grove experience right from the beginning and we are looking for someone who shares our excitement. 

We currently have Reception – Year 5 in our Primary phase and Year 7-9 in our Secondary phase. The school will grow each year to a full capacity of 1,940 including Sixth Form. 

Grove Academy is the second school opened by The SASH Education Trust (Slough Association of Secondary Head teachers) and we benefit enormously from the support and collaboration of the 14 secondary Head teachers in Slough. Ditton Park Academy is the first school which is part of our multi-academy trust.

We are looking for an Assistant Principal who:

• is ready for a challenge and is prepared to be flexible in the early days of this new school

• has the imagination and understanding of project based learning to help us develop our curriculum

• is able to inspire, lead, develop and support effective teaching and learning practice for children in their phase and, with a teaching commitment, should be able to lead by example

• can monitor and analyse the performance of children and plan effectively for progress.
