Inspire their remarkable with us

Inspirational leadership is a remarkable thing, and that is exactly what we need here at Broadlands.  There are a number of strengths to build on at the Academy, but we also need to raise standards and improve the quality of provision rapidly.  You will be a key driver for that.  Broadlands is a small, mixed and fully inclusive comprehensive school. We are situated in extensive grounds and ideally located between Bath and Bristol. 

We offer a unique provision which includes a Nursery, Hospital Education and primary PRU facility. Broadlands is a school rooted in the local community and is on a journey of school improvement. 

Of course you won’t be expected to do it all on your own, but your drive and determination, and experience of managing change, will enable you to set a very clear vision for our future – one that maintains our community ethos whilst driving rapid improvement and raising academic standards.

Within this role, you must be ambitious and able to:

  • Provide dynamic and effective leadership, while also securing high standards and ongoing rapid improvement
  • Promote good and outstanding teaching that secures progress over time and enables students to achieve strong outcomes
  • Develop leadership across all levels
  • Be brave, discover what’s possible, push the limits and be big-hearted
  • Commit to each and every child being inspired to have a remarkable life.

Broadlands Academy is part of Academies Enterprise Trust (AET) national network of 58 primary, secondary and special academies.

We passionately believe that every child can discover their own remarkable life. It is what motivates us. We know this vision requires something extra. Which is why at AET, you’ll find more. More opportunities, so you can forge your own path. More care and support, so you can prioritise what matters most. More purpose, for you and for the children we are inspiring. 

Our new Headteacher will enjoy the autonomy of leadership rooted in the local community, whilst working in partnership with the regional cluster of academies, AET’s Director of Secondary Schools, David Hatchett, and from a committed and professional local governing board. 

Closing date: Monday 18 November 2019
