We are looking for an inspiring and exceptional Executive Headteacher to lead our successful special schools, multi academy trust. This is an exciting and genuine opportunity for a new leader to shape the future direction of the Solent Academies Trust, building on our vision and achievements and leading our teams to achieve their very best. We hope that on reading the details the right person will be inspired, to want to lead our successful Trust team. 

We’ve come a long way together over recent years and our current Executive Headteacher, who is retiring, leaves us in a very strong position. All three of our special school academies, Mary Rose, Cliffdale Primary and Redwood Park are achieving excellence and we have a track record proving that we make a positive difference to the lives of the children who learn with us. We also have strong, collaborative relationships across the Trust and our academies work very closely together.

We are very proud of our Teaching School Alliance which has become increasingly successful in contributing to school improvement locally, in training and inducting new teachers and in leading the Portsmouth Challenge Partners Hub.

We are interested to receive applications from Executive Headteachers or Head Teachers who have experience of leading more than one school. Your application must include a supporting statement that details why you are a suitable candidate to take the Trust forward.

We will offer the successful candidate a competitive salary depending on experience and where appropriate, relocation expenses of up to £5,000
