The Governors are seeking to appoint a well-qualified, highly motivated person with proven leadership abilities to join the senior leadership team of our thriving Catholic school community in the heart of the beautiful Ribble Valley.
St Augustine’s is a mixed, 11-16, oversubscribed comprehensive school with 1050 pupils on roll. We have a strong academic profile and were judged outstanding in all categories in our 2013 Ofsted inspection and 2014 Diocesan inspection. Our 2018 Progress 8 figure of +0.77 placed us as the top performing mixed school in Lancashire and we were particularly pleased with the excellent performance of our Disadvantaged Pupils last year. The 2000, 2006, 2009 and 2013 OFSTED reports all described our pupils’ behaviour as “outstanding.”
This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced leader to manage all aspects of the curriculum as well as ensuring continued high standards of teaching and learning. You will be working with an exceptional team of experienced and enthusiastic staff and as part of a newly formed Leadership Team for September 2019.
The successful candidate will have an excellent track record of raising standards and contributing to whole school improvement. You will need to have outstanding people management skills, a proven track record of improving the performance of colleagues and the ability to work well under pressure.
