Deputy Head Teacher (Arts)

Rugby, Warwickshire 

Salary: £competitive to attract the best

Starting: September 2019

Rugby Free Secondary School (RFSS) is an 11-19 free school which opened in September 2016. The school is led by an inspirational Headteacher and has already proved very popular with parents. RFSS benefits from the backing of a highly supportive local authority and the local MP who both also supported the establishment of our sister school, Rugby Free Primary School, which opened successfully in September 2015.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an outstanding Middle / Senior Leader to become involved with the continued development of a new school. You could already be a Deputy Head looking for a move or an Assistant Headteacher looking for that next stage in your career.  You will work with an outstanding Headteacher.  This role will have an Arts focus and you will work alongside our current Deputy Headteacher whose focus is the Sciences.     We are looking for commitment, passion and ambition.  You must be able to build positive relationships with all pupils in the school, playing an active part in their development, growth and exceptional progress.

If you know how to make learning engaging and are passionate about ensuring all children achieve then this is the right post for you. It will provide a once in a career opportunity for the right candidate and will offer the perfect platform for a future move to middle leadership. You will be supported in this at every stage by a focused Academy Trust that has brought valuable experience in opening successful free schools.
