You will be expected to work across the schools and act as an ambassador, inspiring and empowering others and developing relationships that lead to growth. It is expected that you will improve the Federation, developing skills which will enable support to be commissioned by other schools and organisations.

The role will suit a senior leader who likes to have a balance of being hands on, shaping and setting the direction, but also spending time in each school working closely with each Associate Headteacher and Leadership Team. Educated to at least degree level, you will be bringing senior leadership experience from your current post. 

If you are an inspirational leader who will share our vision and can bring people along with you, then please contact us further to find out more about this exciting opportunity. Interested candidates are strongly encouraged to visit the school. Please telephone the school office on 01257 253559 and make arrangements with the Assistant to the Governing Body,  Miss Chris Edwards, who will also arrange for you to have a conversation with the Chair of Governors.
