Deputy Headteacher - Quality of Education

Coopers SchoolChislehurst, SE London

Education for the 21st Century is driven by the unwavering belief that all children and young people, regardless of background or ability, should have access to a great education. Our vision is clear: to ensure welcoming and open schools for the local community, where every person thrives, makes excellent progress and succeeds.

Coopers is a popular and oversubscribed 11-18 school with over 1,600 students, in the heart of Bromley. We strive to develop inquiring, well-rounded and confident individuals who help create a harmonious world through a shared understanding and respect for each other. Under the ambitious leadership of a new Head of School, we are making big strides in achieving our vast potential.

It’s an incredibly exciting time to join us. We are now looking for an inspiring, tenacious and collaborative Deputy Headteacher (Quality of Education) to work in close partnership with the Head of School in realising our vision for inspirational and creative teaching and learning at Coopers.

Our new Deputy Headteacher will ensure teaching and learning is at the heart of everything we do and every decision we make. Naturally, you will be an outstanding practitioner, with an infectious passion for developing impactful teaching and learning practices, coupled with the tenacity and expertise to lead and coach others to achieve the best for all students through quality first teaching.  Working closely with the Head of School, you will lead the development of policy and practice for teaching and learning and ensure differentiation and effective interventions through monitoring lessons, faculty professional development and supporting team planning.

To be successful, you’ll need a deep understanding of all aspects of pedagogy, curriculum development, quality assurance, self-evaluation, as well as a relentless drive to see positive change in the classroom. Crucially, as a highly influential advocate of exceptional standards at Coopers and across the entire EC21 family, you’ll need a proven ability to engage, inspire and build excellent relationships with students, staff and the entire community we are so proud to serve.

In return, we can offer you unparalleled support within an ambitious and growing organisation to ensure your success and, most importantly, we have the most amazing student, who are ready to learn.

We are always keen to hear from great leaders who are driven by a desire to make a difference.
