EXECUTIVE HEADTEACHER Required for September 2018

Salary: c. £100k plus relocation package where necessary

The Board of Trust in Learning (Academies) are looking to appoint an outstanding school leader to be Executive Headteacher at Bridge Learning Campus. We are seeking a person with vision and one who can inspire young people and staff to deliver their very best. Bridge Learning Campus is a mixed 3 to 16 all-through campus in the south of Bristol with 1000 students on roll and growing. The school was judged good by Ofsted in 2015, but its outcomes have been mixed since then and need to be improved upon quickly. 

We have reached a point in the Campus’s journey where we need a highly unique individual to enable us to finally reach our goal for the Bridge. The community deserves to have a local school that is outstanding and affords the pupils the best education that teaching can offer. 

You will have a strong track record of improving performance, driving change and raising aspirations as well as standards. You will need to be dedicated, passionate and committed and someone who is able to see the possibilities for success for all students. A key requirement will be your ability to bring about change and improvement and in identifying how the Campus can move quickly to achieve outstanding provision and progress. 

We recognise that if you bring these qualities that you are an outstanding individual, and why our reward package is designed to reflect that. 

This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who has the skill, imagination and tenacity to lead the Campus on its next crucial stage. You will be leading a talented and dedicated team of staff and governors who are supported by the Trust’s Central Team and CEO. The post is ideal for someone who has had previous experience of leading and improving a school but who seeks the challenge of doing the same in an all through setting and who is totally committed to understanding and realising the opportunities for excellence that such an institution provides. 

As you will be a highly experienced leader you will also take on a wider executive leadership role, in support of the CEO, across Trust in Learning (Academies). Initially your prime focus will be with the Campus, however, as your impact leads to success you will bring that talent to our wider group of schools in this vital lead role for the Trust.

Trust in Learning (Academies) is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. All appointments will be subject to a satisfactory enhanced DBS disclosure.

We would encourage potential applicants to visit the school and to arrange a visit please contact Alex McAfee, PA to the Interim Headteacher on 0117 353 4472 Ext 2041 or email amcafee@bridgelearningcampus.com
