Our School

Brooklands is an outstanding single entry Primary School. We are looking for a new Headteacher with the mind-set for growth, development and new opportunities.

  • An individual with high expectations of all stakeholders.

  • A personality that is enthusiastic, fun, reflective and open minded.

  • Someone committed to the in-depth partnership and collaboration practices of Maritime, working transparently and supportively with other schools in the Trust.

What we offer:

  • A welcoming, friendly environment.

  • Dedicated, hard-working and professional staff committed to enabling all children to reach their full potential.

  • Happy and enthusiastic children who care for the school and each other.

  • Support and collaboration from being part of a Multi Academy Trust.

  • An excellent differentiated professional development programme.
