Headteacher: Mr M Brook

Due to the promotion of the current postholder, we are seeking an exceptional person to join our SLT as Deputy Headteacher so that we can achieve our aim of being outstanding in everything we do. We are looking for a person with drive and ambition and hopefully someone who might see this role as a stepping stone to headship, but we are also looking for someone with kindness, empathy and a sense of humour!

Lipson is an exciting place to be. We are hugely ambitious and on a rapid journey of improvement as we strive to establish ourselves as one of the very best schools in the region. Everything we do is underpinned by a culture where relationships are key and kindness is a fundamental part of everything we do.

We are looking for candidates who, regardless of where they are in their career, will be able to demonstrate unwavering commitment to raising progress and standards and, like us, believe that social disadvantage is no barrier to achievement and that every student can share in the joy of education and attainment. We will consider applicants with any level of experience as, most importantly, we require candidates who possess integrity, moral purpose and who are learners themselves. A relocation package will be available for the right candidate.

Application details for this post can be obtained from the academy website or by telephoning the academy.
