If you believe a great school is filled with love not fear, gifts, not deficits, solutions not problems and strengths not weaknesses; if you are excited by continuing to grow our school and build our community; if you can inspire and transform, see possibilities, smile through challenges and disappointments all the while remembering that this is a vocation that is about children, not data, learning, not grades then you are the one for us. If you just want just another Deputy Headteacher post don’t click any further.
WE ARE AMBROSE. MAKE US YOUR AMBROSE.
If you want to join a fantastic Catholic school with a new Sixth Form and a very exciting future; if you want to work in a vibrant and creative school with unparalleled links with business and industry; if you believe that every young person can be the best version of themselves. If you believe that compassion, care and excellence are the basis of a good education for life, then we are the school for you.
We are in Swinton in the City of Salford, minutes from Manchester city centre. We are a National School of Creativity and one of only two schools in the country to have been awarded Artsmark Platinum. Every day over 1100 young people walk through our doors into a caring, supportive and successful school. We believe passionately in sending them out into the world with a love of learning and the skills, knowledge and values that will make a positive difference to them and their community. Other people call them pupils, we call them Change Makers.
We are at a very significant moment in our development. Our Sixth Form is now thriving and offering a wide range of courses, mainly A levels, we are renewing our curriculum, our approach to learning and teaching and, most importantly of all, our culture. We serve a catchment area that is fully representative of Salford and next year we will be full in all year groups from 7 to 13. Our vision and mission are clear. Nine words: Faith in You, Love in Learning, Hope in Better. Our mission statement encapsulates what we want for our pupils and our staff (http://www.stambrosebarlowswinton.org/eleven-to-sixteen/our-school) If you read it and can see yourself in those words then start writing an application now.
If you would like to be part of our journey we would love to hear from you.
