When you walk through the doors of Gosbecks Primary School, the experience is something special, a vibrant and stimulating environment that inspires our pupils to be the best they can be. It is this ethos which is part of the DNA of this amazing school and was recognised by OFSTED when they awarded us a Good rating at our last inspection.

Following the retirement of our current Headteacher next summer, we need to plan for the next stage of our improvement journey and appoint a new Headteacher who will build on the successes of the past few years. This could include school expansion and being part of a multi-academy trust of local primary schools, all of whom are determined to ensure education in this part of Colchester is of the highest standard.

We are therefore looking for an ambitious and passionate leader who can lead change, inspire a workforce, engage with stakeholders, parents and pupils alike to deliver an amazing experience for all.

If you think you are up to the challenge, why not come and see for yourself. Visits to the school are warmly welcomed and encouraged, please contact the school office on 01206 575407 to make an appointment.
