We are seeking to appoint an experienced and highly motivated leader to join our Senior Leadership Team. The Ilfracombe Academy is a Good and improving 11-18 Church of England Academy with an expanding Sixth Form. The school sits on the North Devon Coast overlooking the Bristol Channel and moved into new buildings in October 2017.
The school was judged Good with Outstanding Leadership in February 2017 by SIAMS and Good in all categories by OFSTED in April 2017. The Academy has a dynamic leadership team across both senior and middle leaders, and professional development opportunities for all our staff.
The successful candidate will enjoy a challenge, have experience of leadership in a pastoral capacity at senior level and have high aspirations and ambition for all students regardless of ability or background. A vision for achieving excellent outcomes for students, within clear boundaries and a positive supportive ethos, is essential.
If successful, you will lead, develop and manage all aspects of pastoral care and Student Services, as well as supporting the development of excellent teaching and learning.
The vacancy arises due to the promotion of the post holder to Headteacher in a neighbouring school.
