King’s Academy Binfield (KAB) and King’s Academy Oakwood (KAO) are looking to appoint a highly motivated, dynamic and innovative Assistant Principal with an excellent track record to play an intrinsic role in our all-through academy in Bracknell Forest. We opened our all-through school in a superb new building in September 2018 with 120 fabulous year 7 students, who were joined in September 2019 by a further 150 year 7 students and nursery through to year 2 students in our two primary phases. We will rapidly grow year on year to our capacity of over 1800, 3 - 18. Both academies are run cohesively sharing the same leadership, staff, values, curriculum, opportunities and expectations of excellence.

The successful candidate will have responsibility for leading all aspects of teaching, learning and staff development across the whole age range in both academies; further developing outstanding whole school practice in remarkable teaching and learning. They will work with all staff, leading the ‘whatever it takes’ ethos to enable every young person at KAB and KAO to thrive. They will have expertise in innovative and impactful teaching and learning strategies and will have a proven track record in raising the achievement of all students. 

The successful candidate will need to demonstrate a commitment to and evidence of success in the development of the wider aspects of school life. Applicants should be excellent classroom teachers in their own right; as well as being able to work as part of a team, get stuck in and inspire all staff and students to excel. 

As a new and rapidly growing all-through academy, this is a rare and exciting opportunity for a skilful leader who can bring creativity, innovation and dynamism. Potential is just as important as experience.  

KAB and KAO are part of the King’s Group Academies MAT led by a team of former and current Ofsted ‘outstanding’ Headteachers and Ofsted Inspectors.  The King’s Group separately operates British schools abroad, educating over 4,000 students in countries such as Spain, Latvia and Panama, offering exciting opportunities for genuine international collaboration.
