Newlands is a successful and over-subscribed girls’ 11-18 comprehensive school with a strong reputation for academic achievement. Our very pleasing Ofsted report (January 2018) stated that we provide a high-quality education for every pupil.
We are once again celebrating excellent GCSE results, the equivalent of 83% 9-5 in English and Mathematics and 35% A*/A/9-7. We also had an outstanding 99.6% success rate from our A-Level students with 82% of grades at A*-C. Our pupils achieved a well above average Progress 8 score of +0.67.
This is an exciting opportunity for an inspirational leader to join our highly successful and over-subscribed school. We are looking for a Deputy Headteacher who has:
- A track record of success in raising standards for all young people
- The necessary qualities to inspire, challenge and support
- A well-developed ability to think strategically.
We can offer you:
- A high-achieving school
- A talented and professional staff
- Well-behaved and highly motivated pupils.
Applicants must be able to demonstrate that they are excellent classroom practitioners and have the potential to move to Headship. The specific job accountabilities – combining both academic and pastoral elements - will be discussed with the successful candidate.
Please contact Mrs Liz Bateson, Headteacher’s E.A. for further details of the post.
