Required for the Summer Term 2018 (or earlier if available)
Deputy Director of Learning for Science
Main Pay Scale + TLR 1C
We wish to appoint an exceptional classroom teacher to this post. The Science directorate receives excellent leadership, currently by a senior leader, however, there is a need for additional leadership capacity to allow this large department to achieve its potential.
This is a fantastic opportunity for the right person to develop their leadership skills.
We have developed a national and international reputation for our pioneering work to raise standards and ensure that all students, especially the most vulnerable, are able to achieve their full potential. Lyng Hall was the first school to achieve the Achievement for All Quality Mark and Lead School status.
Students flourish in the environment that we have created. We work very closely with parents and seek to resolve all barriers to achievement, whatever and wherever they are. We have a dynamic, positive and talented staff, providing an excellent learning environment for our children.
The school serves a very socio-economically challenging neighbourhood with 50% of the children from ethnic minority groups, particularly Eastern Europe. This diversity is a very positive feature of our school.
CPD at Lyng Hall is good and enhances the careers of colleagues at every stage of their teaching career and clear pathways to leadership are available from day one.
Lyng Hall is part of the Finham Park Multi Academy Trust, which currently comprises three secondary schools and one primary school. There are opportunities for staff to collaborate across the MAT.
If you share our ambition to provide an outstanding education for our pupils, we would welcome an application from you.
