Deputy Headteacher

Archbishop Tenison's SchoolLambeth

We are looking to appoint a fantastic teacher and inspirational leader as our Deputy Headteacher. The successful candidate will work closely with the Headteacher and a team of Assistant Headteachers to build on the recent school improvements to ensure Archbishop Tenison’s becomes the school of choice for the local community. 

Our recent school improvement journey has included refurbishment of key social and communal spaces, a complete review of our curriculum to ensure knowledge is planned and carefully sequenced and consistent systems for effective teaching and behaviour management.

As a small Church of England school, we have also developed a distinctive Christian vision which is ambitious for every child; we want our students to grow so that they might let their light shine before others (Matthew 5:16) in all that they do.
