Our School Vision Statement
Sandhurst School challenges, supports and inspires every individual to achieve their best; a sense of belonging is encouraged, responsibility is shared and everyone is valued.
This exciting opportunity is being offered by the Trustees of Corvus Learning Trust and the Governors of Sandhurst School who are seeking to appoint a new dynamic and enthusiastic Headteacher to lead this school. This appointment will follow the retirement of the current Headteacher who has given thirty-seven years of outstanding school service, including ten in the role of Headteacher.
The school is located in the town of Sandhurst, Berkshire, and is a popular 11-18 mixed comprehensive which has 1,100 students, including a sixth form. Sandhurst School was judged as “Good” by Ofsted in November 2017 who specifically highlighted the school leaders’ commitment to improving pupils’ life chances. Known as a caring and inclusive school, Sandhurst provides a positive and purposeful climate for learning and offers all students an opportunity to succeed. The culture, curriculum, teaching and leadership at all levels enables students of all abilities, to thrive and achieve their very best.
We are looking to recruit a strategic, committed, inspirational and compassionate leader who possesses the leadership skills, drive and determination to ensure the school offers all students an educational experience of the highest quality. Their vision should include an 11-18 curriculum that engages all students whilst creating an environment where students and staff feel safe, cared for and motivated to succeed, and where achievements are celebrated.
Professional, approachable and with an ability to lead and inspire will be key qualities along with an ability to build strong collaborative relationships at both school and Trust level, including the local community. At Trust level purposeful engagement and shared work with those within CLT is required to support the Trust’s Vision to “deliver an exceptional education to all of our young people”.
Visits to the school are warmly welcomed and encouraged, please contact Claire Read, Clerk to Governors on 01344-775 678 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a time to come and meet us before interview.
