Join an exceptional multi-academy trust.
High performing academies across Bradford and Leeds.
We are looking for an exceptional Head of School to lead Dixons Kings Academy into the next stage of its development. The current Principal will be supporting a new school joining the Dixons Academies Trust; therefore, a Head of School is required to take operational control of the school on a daily basis.
At Dixons Kings Academy, our mission is to ensure everyone receives the support and care needed to become successful and lead a purposeful and happy life. To achieve this goal, we believe that everyone must uphold the three values of integrity, diligence and civility. Our behaviour systems ensure teachers can teach and students can learn. Living by this mission meant that last year 58% of students achieved Basics at 5+ and 48% achieved the EBacc.
Working for the Dixons Academies Trust, you will fully align to our vision and values and have a strong commitment to doing whatever it takes to secure the best possible outcomes for our students. This is an incredibly exciting opportunity to join a forward thinking trust with an utter moral drive to make a difference to the lives of young people.
Our family of schools includes both primary and secondary, both new start-ups and sponsored academies. Our diversity is a real strength of our model, balancing strong collaboration with the individual freedom to innovate. We have a solid platform from which we continue to build; our trust will continue to expand, from 4,900 students now to over 8,000 by 2018.
This is an ideal opportunity and a unique environment for an ambitious Vice Principal or equivalent to gain outstanding, supported training to work towards becoming a future Principal. The successful candidate will be:
· able to motivate and inspire students and staff to achieve exceptional outcomes
· focused on building strong professional relationships across the academy
· committed to our unrelenting expectations
· aligned to a can-do culture
· committed to the happiness, wellbeing, self-esteem and progress of everyone at the school
Applicants are strongly advised to visit the academy; as such, please make an appointment with the Principal's PA on 01274 449706.
Please apply using the Dixons Academies Trust’s application form and include a formal letter which addresses the person specification, with particular emphasis on measurable impact.
We positively welcome applications from all sections of the community. The academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Successful applicants will need to provide a current DBS certificate via the Update Service or undertake a DBS enhanced clearance for the academy.
