This is an incredibly exciting time for Brakenhale School. We have worked hard to create a dynamic learning environment under the direction of the Headteacher, Jane Coley. Brakenhale School is a rapidly growing, high performing 11-19 secondary school with a strong commitment to high standards for students and staff. We are a friendly school, with a firm commitment to providing professional development opportunities for our staff and a passionate belief that every student in our school matters.
Brakenhale School is an Academy which is part of the successful Greenshaw Learning Trust, and this move has only continued to support the rapid progression of the school. Ofsted Rating We have recently been judged as Good by Ofsted (January 2019) with 3 Outstanding categories; Leadership and Management, Personal Safety and Behaviour and our Post 16 Provision. We are incredibly proud to be the local secondary school of choice for the fourth year running with over 500 preferences for 210 places for September 2019. In addition, our recent GCSE and A Level results have again been outstanding demonstrating how much further we have travelled. Our focus is to move us to Outstanding in all categories.
The Governors wish to appoint a dynamic Deputy Headteacher, with proven leadership and management skills, to join our highly effective Leadership Team. The post has become available after the recent promotion of our Deputy Headteacher, to a Headteacher post. The candidate will play a key role in ensuring high quality leadership provision for the school.
Candidates must already hold a Senior Management post of Assistant or Deputy Headteacher with the capacity to drive continued, rapid school improvement, lead staff and have clear impact on student outcomes. The post will carry specific responsibilities in a variety of areas that will benefit the team and the school; these will be discussed with candidates during the interview process. This post will provide an ideal opportunity for preparation for Headship.
