An exciting opportunity to lead the next stage of our innovative journey.

CMAS Gloucestershire is a unique independent school specialising in meeting the SEMH needs of children, all of whom have EHCPs. Our main school site is located in Whaddon in Gloucestershire, where we use small groups and one to one work to support academic, social and personal learning.  We currently cater for year 9 -11 students who have found traditional, formal education difficult.

We are looking for a new Head of School to lead a diverse and multi-experienced group of teaching and mentoring staff. You will be supported and challenged by the Executive Headteacher to ensure all children at the school receive the best possible standard of education, achieving their full potential across the breadth of the curriculum.

You will provide inspiring professional leadership, be responsible for the day -to-day efficient management of CMAS school Gloucestershire, lead the school to become a centre of excellence for pupils with SEMH needs, act as the public face and main advocate of the school effectively representing its interests and those of the children in our care.

You need to be a visible, dynamic, resilient, collaborative, and inclusive minded; a role model leader with a focus on achieving the best outcomes for our pupils. You will inspire, motivate, and encourage pupils, families and staff.

We will give you the support and opportunity to provide successful, strategic and creative leadership to shape and influence the outcomes for an exceptional group of children in a happy, growing, school.
