Maharishi Free School
Maharishi Free School wishes to appoint an outstanding
Primary Deputy Headteacher
Full-time permanent, with a maximum class size of 18 students.
Start date: 1 September 2017.
The Maharishi Free School is an Academy situated in West Lancashire, north-west England in proximity to both Liverpool and Greater Manchester.
It is a wonderful place to be – a dynamic learning environment combined with a harmonious atmosphere where children aged from 4 – 16 receive the uniquely effective system of Consciousness-based Education. The School is built over two sites, Primary and Secondary each with a Deputy Head.
Creativity and intelligence are systematically developed with a few minutes of Transcendental Meditation (TM) at the beginning and end of the school day. Scientific research – based upon more than 200 studies - has shown that the experience of restful alertness during TM brings balance to the whole physiology, making learning both enjoyable and successful.
We can offer you:
- An opportunity to join a School with a very strong, shared and uniquely effective ethos which forms the basis of its success – Consciousness-based Education
- A School that was approved in the first round of Free Schools (2011)
- A School with an excellent reputation and small class sizes (18 pupils per class)
- a School graded ‘Good’ by Ofsted, whose focus is on the holistic development of the students
- Full onsite support for developing your understanding and practice of Consciousness-based Education
- Great staff and a harmonious working environment – where exceptionally high dedication is the norm and staff turnover is rare
- Position reports to the Maharishi School Principal
We are seeking a candidate who will:
