Contract term: Permanent

The role of Head of School at St Mary’s Catholic Voluntary Academy is a career defining opportunity to join a successful and ambitious school at the heart of the local community.

As part of the St Thérèse of Lisieux Catholic Multi Academy Trust, you’ll join a unique organisation made up of sixteen schools (two secondary and fourteen primary) with an inclusive vision that brings together over 4,300 pupils across Lincolnshire & Rutland through faith, discipleship and God’s love.

St Mary’s is a good school with just over 200 pupils and a growing number of EAL children, reflecting our increasingly diverse community.  Our mission statement ‘Every Child is a gift from God; gifts we nurture to fulfilment’ reflects our ethos and commitment to ensure all children, irrespective of background, reach their God-given potential through high quality Catholic education.

We have strengths in governance and pupil behaviour but are not complacent and recognise there is more to do.  Working in partnership with the Executive Headteacher who’ll offer guidance and support, you will provide strong leadership to enable sustainable improvements in the quality of provision we deliver - guiding all pupils to achieve exceptional outcomes, regardless of their starting point.  With the support of our committed governing body and the St Thérèse of Lisieux CMAT, you’ll have the opportunity to shape a curriculum that ensures all learners at St Mary’s have access to a truly outstanding Catholic education.

Whilst there is no fixed blueprint for where our new leader will come from, you will be a practising Catholic and bring credible senior school leadership experience.  What’s most important is that you share our ambition to ensure all children, irrespective of background or prior attainment, fulfil their potential through the provision of a high quality, inclusive and authentically Catholic education.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a committed team who are already delivering great results.  With your leadership we know we can be even better.

If you share our passion, drive and ambition, we’d love to hear from you.

The St Thérèse of Lisieux Catholic Multi Academy Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and we expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  The successful candidate will undergo an enhanced DBS check, prior to employment.  There is a genuine occupational requirement for the successful candidate to be a practising Catholic. Please refer to the diocesan definition of practising Catholic.
