Falconer School is a special school for boys aged 11 – 16 that specialises in working with boys who have social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. It is situated in Bushey, near Watford in Hertfordshire with excellent transport links to central London. There are 90 pupils on the school roll including 8 full time residential pupils.
The Governors at Falconer School are proud to be part of a ‘Good’ school with an ‘Outstanding’ residential unit. We believe that a key part of this success is the strong links and relationships that have been developed between staff, pupils, parents and the broader school community.
We are seeking a new Headteacher with the skills and vision to build on Falconers successes and achievements: someone who will shape and share our vision and ethos, and our aspirations for our pupils.
You will be confident, resilient and positive, with strong leadership skills and the ability to build relationships with a wide variety of external partners. Above all, you will share our passion and belief that children, their learning and the development of their potential must be at the heart of all school decisions. You will get professional enjoyment and satisfaction from leading a highly experienced team and a vibrant school community.
The post is open to individuals with experience working in an SEN environment, who have the proven leadership skills and the ability to manage a diverse team and a pupil population with a range of complex needs.
In return we will offer you the full support of the Governors in your work to further develop Falconer; a dedicated and committed team; great pupils and a friendly and happy learning environment. You will also have the opportunity to play a key strategic role in driving the school forward and to continue your own professional development.
By working together, we want to ensure that Falconer School maintains its wonderful learning environment for every pupil and proactively prepares to thrive in an uncertain future.
If you would like to find out more about this role we would be delighted to show you around our school. Please contact Sue English, PA to Headteacher on 0208 950 2505 to arrange an appointment
