Hello. We are looking for someone like you.

Set in beautiful village surroundings with great facilities, a proactive PTA and motivated Governors, we are a school that is very proud of both our results and our enthusiastic and happy children.

You will have exemplary communication skills and the ability to create a relationship with parents that is inclusive and proactive.

You will be firmly committed to the highest standards and the belief that all pupils can achieve great things, and together we will strive to break down barriers to achievement and create exciting opportunities for the pupils in our community. The successful candidate will work closely with the staff and members of the governing body to achieve our shared vision.

If you are motivated and continuously strive for excellence, and want to be a part of an enthusiastic, dedicated and well-resourced team, committed to ensuring that all students make the best possible progress in an ambitious school with the desire to continue to be ‘outstanding’, we would be pleased to receive an application from you.
