Help shape our future.

We are seeking a Head of School to help lead our highly successful college in a tremendously exciting chapter of our history. 

The college in 2016 was the highest performing school in Leicester and in the top 7% of schools nationally. In 2017, again we celebrated record outcomes and are seeking to sustain high academic performance as we work with the Leicester City Council in expanding the school from 1000 to 1500 over the next 5 years. It is for this reason that a range of leadership roles have arisen at the College. 

You may also be interested in our other Leadership roles: Principal and Deputy Principal, details of which you can also find in our recruitment pack.

As a college, we passionately believe in transforming the lives of young people from one of the most deprived communities in the UK. With over 50% of our students from disadvantaged backgrounds, we know that our success is genuinely doing this.

​​​​​​The day-to-day challenge of leading Fullhurst cannot be underestimated. Fullhurst needs highly performing leaders who can command the respect of our diverse community, inspire our talented leaders, teachers and support staff, and work enterprisingly within a complex business environment.

In return we will give you every professional opportunity and support to succeed.   A letter (maximum 2 sides of A4) detailing why you are a suitable candidate, for the position you are applying for, should accompany your completed application form. 

Closing date: Friday 20th October at 9am

Interview date: TBC

Start date: September 2018 or sooner  

Fullhurst Community College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children and young people. Please note that an Enhanced DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) statement will be obtained for the successful applicant.
