St Andrew the Apostle is an inclusive, friendly and welcoming 11-18 faith school located in Barnet serving students from a range of London boroughs.  

We opened in 2013 as the UK’s first state-funded Greek Orthodox school with just Year 7, built on a successful partnership forged between the Greek Orthodox Church, the Classical Education Trust and our academy sponsor, Russell Education Trust (RET). The school is a diverse environment and serves students of all faiths and beliefs, with half of the places reserved for Greek Orthodox students.

St Andrew the Apostle is a wonderful place to work, characterised not only by high academic standards but also by the strength of the leadership team and the staff.  We have an enviably high level of subject expertise among our staff. They have helped shape and deliver our broad and balanced, traditional but contemporary curriculum that aims to develop our students intellectually, socially, culturally, spiritually and morally. With a focus on English, maths and science, the school also offers classical subjects such as Classics, Latin and Greek as well as a wide range of extra-curricular activities. Leaders within the school develop and care for staff and students alike. Governors play an active role in school life and they support and challenge both the senior leaders and the Trust.

We are looking for a dedicated and inspiring professional to lead St Andrew the Apostle School through the next phase of its development. You will have with an exceptional track record of school leadership, a commitment to the academic success of every student, and the determination and resilience needed to fulfil the demands of this role. You will support the inclusive and Christian ethos of the school and be receptive to the strong bonds between the Greek Orthodox Church, the School, and the wider community.

The successful candidate will also be able to deliver on moving the school from its current temporary split site to its permanent purpose-built new home which is part of a scheme for the wider residential development of the North London Business Park. With the technical project management in place through the Trust, this is a unique and exciting opportunity for our new Head to influence the design and deliver an outstanding educational vision.
