He or she will currently be a member of the senior leadership team and will not be class based but will be expected to offer a core subject at upper KS2. A willingness to take part in extra-curricular life is also important.   

In addition to being a superb teacher, the candidate will have strong interpersonal skills, a ‘can-do’ attitude to school life and will be prepared to lead and manage by example. Candidates should relish all the professional challenges posed at the most senior level.
