The successful candidate will need experience at assistant, deputy or Head Teacher level and be able to take up the post of Executive Head Teacher at Ryton Infant and Junior Schools as of September 2018.

The Governing Body is looking for a candidate who can commit to the long-term future of our schools, using their knowledge and experience to continue the excellent work of our previous Executive Head in bringing together the Infant and Junior schools to drive forward the Federation.

Applicants for the post should be highly motivated, well-qualified and possess outstanding interpersonal skills.

  • Be resilient, creative and committed to maintaining the federation’s place at the heart of the community.
  • Understand what it takes to preserve the unique features and caring ethos of each school while continuing the work to bring them closer together to benefit all children.

The Federation schools are at the heart of a busy, thriving village with a strong community spirit. The schools are on a shared campus.
