Witton Park Academy is part of Achievement through Collaboration Trust - an ambitious and supportive Trust, where children come first and are at the heart of all we do.

We are looking for a leader who shares our values. A leader who uses coaching as their philosophy for developing people.  A leader who can support the school strategically.  

We would like you to be able to demonstrate the improvements you have been responsible for in any strategic areas of your school(s).  The skill and personality to motivate and inspire our staff and students to achieve their highest personal goals is a key attribute for this role.  As a good school, we continually seek improvements; we believe this strategic role will take us into the next stage of our improvement journey.  We are particularly looking for someone to strategically lead improvements on equity within the school ensuring our pupil premium children achieve as well as their peers.

As Deputy Headteacher, you will work closely with other members of the leadership team, all of whom are passionate about improving the life chances of our students, making sure that they fulfil their part in ensuring that Witton Park Academy is a school to be proud of.  In addition there will be opportunities to work collaboratively with colleagues in our other schools to support school improvement.

We are not looking for a specific curriculum discipline, although we would expect high quality teaching to be demonstrated at interview and in post.

This is a wonderful opportunity for an ambitious and dedicated professional to join our school and make a difference to the lives of our students and the community we serve.

Visits to the school will be available on Wednesday 23rd June and Tuesday 29th June at 8.30am and 2.00 pm.
