We are seeking to appoint a talented, committed and highly-motivated individual to the post of Deputy Head of Centre, initially based at our KS4 Harpley Centre. This is an ideal opportunity for someone who aspires to school leadership either in alternative provision or mainstream education. The role has a small teaching commitment and although the teaching subject is not important applications would be particularly welcome from English and maths specialists.

The successful applicant will be able to demonstrate a strong commitment to the aims, values and ethos of London East Alternative Provision and a proven track record of delivering excellent outcomes for students with significant individual needs and whose previous experience of schooling has, for whatever reasons, not been wholly positive. 

If appointed, you will be joining a team committed to continuing the rapid pace of improvement, already acknowledged by Ofsted and most recently by Challenge Partners. 

You will have a proven ability to raise the attainment of pupils who face many barriers to progress and have strong behaviour management skills and the willingness to work in a ‘restorative’ way.
