Due to the retirement of the current post-holder, Wycombe High School Academies Trust (WHSAT) is looking to appoint a Headteacher to lead Bourne End Academy. You will be an inspiring, driven and effective practitioner, with the energy and commitment to lead the school on our journey to ‘Outstanding’.

The successful candidate will have a track record of raising standards and improving outcomes and will be somebody with a passion for improving social mobility. The expectation is for the successful candidate to contribute towards the development of the Trust and Trust priorities.
