Two schools, one Federation – and an exciting opportunity

Two successful schools with strong identities, Bushey and Oxhey Infant School and Bushey Manor Junior School, are looking to appoint an exceptional Executive Head Teacher who can build on the achievements of the inaugural Executive Head, who is leaving to take up a second Executive Headship in a federation in North West London.

We are looking for a talented and values-driven educationalist, and a proven school leader, who will work with our Heads of School and staff body, and with an engaged Board of Governors and parent body, to provide overall strategic leadership for our two recently federated schools and drive our shared ambition for outstanding provision, progress and attainment. We believe that federation and collaboration is likely to rapidly become the norm in the primary phase, and we want a leader ready to embrace the opportunities that this may offer.

Based a short walk apart in the same thriving and supportive community, our two-form entry schools have both been rated as “Good” by Ofsted in the past year. Each school is situated in attractive, well-maintained grounds, and resourced to provide a full range of learning opportunities.

Bushey and Oxhey Infant School (roll: 180) prides itself on its nurturing environment, providing children with the opportunity to succeed both academically and socially, and its positive relationships between home and school.

Children typically transition to Bushey Manor Junior School (roll: 248) where high expectations continue and a vibrant curriculum is offered both inside and outside the classroom by a talented and dedicated staff.

Your task will be to deliver our vision of excellence through collaboration, one that takes both schools from ‘good’ to ‘outstanding’ and gives the children in our care the opportunity to achieve and develop as confident, informed, and well-rounded individuals, ready for a future as yet unimagined, and for the next stage of their personal, developmental and educational journey.

For an initial and informal discussion about the post, please contact Dr. Tony Breslin (Chair, Board of Governors) by email ( or telephone (07973 885 915).

Email Liz Redman for an information pack.

Apply to Liz Redman, Federation Business Manager at Bushey Primary Education Federation, by 5pm on Monday 24th April. 

The Board of Governors at Bushey Primary Education Federation is committed to equality of opportunity, to the Safer Recruitment Process, and to promoting the welfare of the children and young people in our care and that of their communities. We expect all staff, volunteers and visitors to share these commitments.
