We are looking for someone who is ambitious and inspirational to lead our dedicated and talented English department.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a talented Second in English who is ready for promotion, or a current HOD looking to broaden their experience.

We are an ambitious school, full of sparky, creative and intelligent students, and supportive and vibrant staff. This is an exciting time to join the Trust. Everything is post merger and age range change. Everything is now in place to start us on the journey to make us the outstanding school that the hardworking town of Wigston deserves. This is a Trust that believes in children and if you want to work somewhere that puts them first and respects their creativity and character, then this is the place for you. There are areas where we are outstanding already – our music dance and drama productions are legendary in the county and our Excel unit for pupils with Autism has a national reputation. Our A Level English results are also some of the best in the country.

Reporting directly to the Headteacher and Executive Headteacher, you will have access to high quality CPD, and support to develop as a leader. You will have the drive to lead and develop the curriculum and quality of teaching, and the ability to ensure our students reach their full potential. 

We have one non-negotiable: you must be passionate about the care, happiness and learning of the children you’ll work with.
