Start date: September 2020
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: £Competitive to attract the right application + Relocation Support
Contract term: Permanent

St Mary’s Hare Park is a one-form entry independent Catholic primary school and nursery. We are ambitious for our pupils both in terms of educational achievement, but just as importantly, in helping them develop into compassionate, responsible young people who use their talents for the good of others.

Our recent Ofsted Inspection in June 2018, under the new framework, achieved a solidly Good judgement - offering our next Headteacher a strong platform for the future.

Following the decision of the existing post-holder to retire at the end of this academic year, we are seeking a new Headteacher with vision and ability to lead, manage and inspire our school community as a centre of excellence with a distinctive Catholic ethos.

You will be joining a vibrant and welcoming school - an exciting place to work with happy, friendly children from a culturally diverse range of backgrounds who are eager to learn; and well-motivated, compassionate staff who work hard to deliver a first-class education. The school is ably supported by dedicated Trustees who are committed to bringing positivity and support to the new Headteacher as the school embarks on a new chapter on its journey.

If, as an existing Head, or indeed a Deputy/exceptional Assistant Head looking for their first step into Headship (and with a background in either the Voluntary Aided and/or Independent sector), you believe you offer the leadership which inspires and motivates others towards excellence, then we would love to hear from you.

A requirement of the post is that applicants must be practising catholics.

Closing date: Monday 20 January at 12 Noon

Shortlisting: Tuesday 21 January

Interviews: Tuesday 28 January (One Day)

We warmly encourage you to visit the school to see the children and staff at work. We are confident that you will quickly sense the palpable warmth, welcome and friendliness of the whole school community, for we believe it is this that makes St Mary’s Hare Park School such an exciting place to lead.

For an initial informal chat (in complete confidence) and Application Pack please call Liam Dowds, our Emmaus Advising Consultant, on 01737 652 043 or email him at ldowds@emmausleadership.me.


Our school is an equal opportunities employer and committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. DBS check required.
