We are looking for a candidate who can build on our solid foundations and lead the school through all the challenges ahead.

  • A passion and enthusiasm for each individual child’s learning and determination to see that each child maximises their full potential. 
  • A clear, consistent focus on Teaching and Learning

  • A track record of supporting and developing outstanding teaching
  • A vision for leading our school to outstanding performance in all aspects of the Catholic life of the school
