The school requires an experienced leader who can work well with the Senior Leadership team and the Governing body to provide the insight to meet the current challenges facing schools; to provide the strategy to develop the school, its assets, its teachers and all other staff, whilst still providing the good education our parents expect and currently get for their children.
