North Huddersfield Trust School is recognised by Ofsted as a 'Good' school which is outstanding in its work around students' personal development, well-being, safety and security. We continually drive forward standards and are passionate about maximising the potential in all. Our caring and nurturing approach to education within and beyond the classroom contribute to what makes our school a special place both to work and to learn.
We place great value on the fulfilment and well-being of our colleagues; our successes to date are in no small part down to their hard work, commitment and determination and as a relatively new school, our growing student roll enables us to provide opportunities for both personal and career development.
We are seeking to appoint a talented individual with a flair for leadership and innovation, as well as a clear commitment to driving progress and raising attainment in English. The successful candidate will demonstrate exemplary subject knowledge and curriculum awareness, a robust understanding of data and its application to bridge gaps in performance as well as a passion for English and a desire to make it accessible to all students. It is essential that you are an outstanding classroom practitioner and an enthusiastic educationalist capable of providing inspirational leadership.
