Great Barr is a remarkable opportunity for an exceptional candidate to successfully deliver innovative, entrepreneurial, education strategy.

Our 1750 students deserve the very best: nothing else will do. 

This is not a role for the faint hearted. The Shaw Education Trust is determined that this Campus based approach to learning will break new ground, revolutionise educational opportunities and transform the lives of this community.

In December 2016 the school joined Shaw Education Trust. If you are successful you will be joining a Trust which believes that every child should have the opportunity to be successful regardless of their starting point; and pledges an unswerving commitment to improve, accelerate and enable ambitious life goals amongst all young people.

We are seeking to appoint a dynamic, fiercely ambitious leader, who shares our passion; who has the highest expectations; and the determination and skill to secure the long-term success of our wonderful community.

We are very ambitious for our students and our staff and require an inspirational, experienced and successful leader to build on the school’s many strengths, drive up standards and lead the next phenomenally exciting phase of its development.
