Our Vision

As a federation, we have worked closely with all stakeholders to agree our Vision.

Our schools offer a safe, welcoming and nurturing environment for every child. All individuals have the chances they deserve and the opportunity to develop skills for life. The Christian ethos of the schools is underpinned by the Christian values of friendship, honesty, responsibility, respect, perseverance and forgiveness. We all work together to ensure that our schools are a happy and exciting place in which to learn and to inspire a sense of awe and wonder. Children leave us with the potential to become respected, independent and tolerant members of society.

Our schools are looking for someone who can provide visionary and creative leadership providing opportunities for progression towards excellent outcomes through effective use of resources and working as part of a larger team, with shared goals.

We look forward to meeting candidates who can:

  • provide leadership experience, as a head or deputy in past roles
  • create and maintain a productive learning environment which is engaging and fulfilling for all members of the school community
  • foster the continuous improvement and quality of education offered by each school
  • preserve and develop the Christian ethos for both schools.

You will be offered a comprehensive three year induction package.
