The Board of Governors is looking for an exceptional leader to continue the development of our outstanding practice. Our new Headteacher should have a proven track record of effective leadership in raising standards and successful school improvement, promoting excellence, equality and high expectations for all with the forthcoming retirement of our long standing Headteacher.

Our Mission Statement, "Where confidence grows so potential becomes reality" is centred around delivering a balanced curriculum to enthusiastic and motivated children as well as offering pupils a breadth of extra-curricular activities such as art, music, languages, sport and outdoor learning.

Holly Trees embraces multicultural and environmental principles, as evidenced by our Fairtrade mark, Green Flag award, and Forest School status.

We would like to take this opportunity to invite you by appointment to visit Holly Trees Primary School, and we hope that the opportunities, children and challenge that you encounter will encourage you to apply.

  • Promote the ‘Holly Trees ethos’ that fosters self-esteem in our diverse intake of pupils
  • Be able to analyse a full range of academic and financial information
  • Recognise the strengths of our teaching and support staff in their individual development
  • Assess the impact of programmes designed for disadvantaged/Pupil Premium children
  • Explore opportunities for expanding the curriculum further

Holly Trees can offer you:

  • Highly skilled staff who are committed to our holistic view of child development
  • Strong and effective safeguarding and pastoral care
  • Pupils with outstanding behaviour who want to learn
  • A two-form entry school with a ‘small’ school feel – senior staff know the name of every pupil
  • An active and engaged Governing Board intent on building on what has been achieved
  • A commitment to supporting professional development
