Are you a remarkable leader that wants more? 

More opportunity to inspire our children to choose a REMARKABLE LIFE.

NOR: 283

Age range: 3-11

St Helen’s Primary Academy is part of a family of schools brought together by one common vision and passionate belief that each and every child can lead a remarkable life. An excellent education transforms lives and every pupil who attends one of our schools is given the support, care and opportunity they need to flourish. Which is where you come in.

Situated in a diverse community in Barnsley, the school is a one form entry and has a nursery provision.

Our academy is continuing on its journey.  Under its current leadership the academy has moved forward and green shoots are starting to show but there is still work to do. 

We are looking for an experienced leader who can build on the good work completed so far. You will have a passion for school improvement and a proven track record in raising standards.  You will demonstrate a clear commitment to the school and its community. You will model outstanding leadership and set high expectations for students and staff. If you are driven, resilient and relish a challenge this is the right opportunity for you.

This is an excellent opportunity for a leader looking to combine the experience of running a school with the benefit of working as part of a national trust. You will be joining the leading inclusive educational trust in the country - one where you have more opportunities to forge your own path, where your work is truly valued and where you will receive the recognition and rewards to motivate you to build on your achievements. 

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak we will not be conducting tours during this recruitment campaign.   As an alternative we can arrange an opportunity for you to speak to the current Headteacher to gain their insight into the school.   Please contact Tanya Bentham, Head of Talent to find out more on 0203 947 5689 or email: recruitment@academiesenterprisetrust.org.

Join us to be part of something special and inspire their remarkable.
