This is an exciting opportunity to build on the strengths of our school and to guide the next stage of our school’s life.

Do you have what it takes to lead our school?

Can you inspire our children and our highly motivated staff?

Following the retirement of our current Headteacher, this is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious school leader to build on what has been achieved at Livingstone Primary School.  The school was judged by Ofsted in March 2017 to be ‘good’ and can be located on the northern edge of Bedford. 

We are a thriving two form entry school, currently with 400 children in roll speaking 40 different languages. The school is split over two buildings and there is extensive and attractive grounds around the school. 

The foundation of our school is ‘opportunity for all to succeed’ and we are proud to be an inclusive school which provides a high quality, creative and challenging education. We value and welcome all children and aim to meet their individual needs so that all can achieve their potential. The school staff are hard-working, friendly and dedicated. 

Governors are looking for a dynamic, modern and forward-thinking leader who will inspire and motivate our dedicated and talented staff to work with us on the next stage of our journey and to provide the best possible education to all.

Further information and an application pack is available on our website. 

Tours of our school are warmly welcomed. To book a tour, please email Linda Large, Office Manager, at schooloffice@livingstone.bedssch.co.uk.
