Head of VIth Form

Lammas School and Sixth FormWaltham Forest

Lammas School is recruiting for a Head of VIth Form. We would like to hear from you if you have the vision, networks and track record to deliver unrivalled provision for our students so they thrive as young adults and access the best universities and career opportunities wherever their futures may take them. Our senior students achieve well and are ready for their ambitions to be challenged further and their contribution to the community strengthened.

As a school, we are forging our path to “great” built on proud traditions, wide horizons and high achievement. Lammas School and VIth Form is a vibrant and exciting place to be with a positive culture that enables staff and students to develop and use their talents. As a leader in a Griffin School, you will also have the opportunity to work more widely across the Trust and to benefit from the GST leadership programme.

At our school we are passionate about educating young people through rich extra-curriculum, expertly taught.  As proud members of the Griffin Schools Trust, we base our philosophy on the shared pillars of Proud Traditions, Wide Horizons and High Achievement. We are committed to challenging educational and social disadvantage and aim to instil our students the ability to think critically and creatively. The Griffin Schools Trust is also committed to supporting colleagues to achieve swift career progression offering a range of opportunities and experiences across the thirteen Trust schools.

This role would suit an expert in their field, with the capacity for creativity and the belief that regardless of background, every child can achieve at least national norms. 

Lammas School is a thriving and highly regarded community school with Sixth Form provision, located within walking distance of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, and set on the edge of Hackney Marshes. We are closely partnered with two outstanding Primary Schools, Willow Brook and Riverley. The staff team is supportive and balanced with well-established colleagues working alongside Teach First trainees, NQTs and those at all stages of their careers. 

Our curriculum offer is broad, and we are intently focused not only on achieving academic excellence, but also widening the horizons of the community we serve via the arts, sports and an enviable co-curricular offer. 

We engage in a wide variety of Proud Traditions and experiences that serve to enthuse and energise our educational offer. These include the yearly Griffin Science Symposium, The Griffin Sports Festival, The Griffin Arts Festival and Founders Day, all opportunities to engage in higher level experiences and strengthen community. 

To apply for this position include a full CV with the names and contact details of two referees and send it along with your supporting statement of no more than two sides of A4 and addressed to Mark Bland at telling us what you have achieved so far in your career and how you will make the Lammas provision a great VIth Form centre. 

The deadline for applications is 12noon on Monday 27 September 2021.

We warmly welcome applicants who wish to visit us in advance of making an application. Please contact Joy Ahmet (PA to Head).
