If you are an outstanding leader, inspirational with strategic vision, then this is an exciting opportunity for you to be part of our school. We are located in a pleasant residential area and enjoy views of the South Downs.

The Governors and Headteacher of The Cavendish School Academy Trust invite applications for the leadership of the Primary phase of this popular and successful school. We are a co-educational comprehensive school of currently 760 Secondary Phase pupils. In September 2015 the School opened the Primary phase with a two form entry Reception to become an All-Through school in existing school buildings. In September 2016, we opened our new Primary Phase building which also incorporated a Pre-School. The primary phase has currently 270 pupils from Reception age to Year 4.

The Primary phase has been highly oversubscribed for the past two years.  Parents cite academic focus, academic results, the dedication of staff and the modern, purpose-built environment, as reasons for choosing the school for their children. The school has a strong ethos and pupils are eager to learn.

As the Head of Primary Phase at Cavendish, you would have access to a number of resources offered by us as all-through school, such as whole school professional development, data processing, an attendance office, and excellent outdoor and sporting facilities

The successful candidate, a committed professional, will be:

• A passionate educator

• Able to work collaboratively with the Headteacher in shaping the development of the Primary Phase.

• An inspirational leader with the ability to mobilise a team

• Able to motivate and raise pupil achievement

• Actively promoting the school in the wider community

• Continue developing a happy and secure environment for pupils and staff
