Deputy Head

The Suthers SchoolNottinghamshire

The Suthers School is a non-selective secondary school serving the community of Newark and the surrounding areas. As Deputy Head in a growing school, you will be in the enviable position of shaping and developing a curriculum which will capture students’ interests, provoke serious thinking and develop their intellectual curiosity. You will support an extensive enrichment programme which will ensure that all students are engaged in a curriculum infused with memorable experiences and rich opportunities for learning. The Suthers School is proud of its unique character-focused approach to empower our students to ‘go beyond possible’.

We are looking for a Deputy Head with the drive to lead on teaching and learning and a commitment to Pastoral care. We are dedicated to the progression of every child in our school to enable them to achieve their true potential. Developing our students to realise their goals and ambitions lies at the heart of everything we do. Through a culture of mutual respect, strong behaviour and high standards, we aim to inspire and engage all students – regardless of prior attainment or social background.

This is a fantastic opportunity to use your skills in strategic planning, and to develop and implement initiatives to support the staff and students as The Suthers School grows. We are looking to appoint an outstanding colleague with qualified teacher status and experience of leadership and collaborative working.

The chosen candidate will demonstrate a proven track record of embedding a meaningful curriculum and of sustaining good or outstanding achievement and progress in a whole school environment. In keeping with the strong ethos of the school, there must be an understanding of all students’ needs to facilitate an inclusive school approach.

The Deputy Head will support the Head of School in all aspects of delivery and will need a flexible and entrepreneurial approach to education. We strive for partnership working with our local community and stakeholders; therefore, the successful person will be a natural and a compelling communicator who is able to present confidently and professionally to a range of audiences.

Closing date: 12pm, Monday 13th December 2021
