St Clement Danes is a mixed, state secondary school with an outstanding reputation. It is consistently named in lists of the top comprehensive schools in the country with exceptional academic results, alongside outstanding achievements in sport, music and the arts. Its approach to teaching and learning values education in its widest sense. This enables its young people to flourish and develop the skills and expertise to become happy, twenty-first century global citizens.
It is the founding school of the Danes Education Trust which opens its second school in September 2017. The development of the Trust has led to its Headteacher moving into an Executive Headteacher role, where she will provide strategic leadership across the two schools and work across the Trust more broadly. As a result, the Trustees wish to appoint an exceptional school leader as Headteacher for St Clement Danes, to lead a talented group of staff and students to further success.
Whether you are a Deputy aspiring to such a role, or an existing Headteacher, you will be ambitious and student focused with a track record of successfully leading significant areas of your school to secure the highest possible outcomes for students. You will believe in the power and moral purpose of education and insist on the highest of standards for all staff and students – this will have shaped your career to date.
Your natural approach will be to work with others – this is not a role which will require you to work in isolation. The school is at the heart of system leadership, regionally and nationally, and its reputation is built on partnership. It is the lead school within the Herts and Bucks Teaching School Alliance, the Hertfordshire Challenge Partners hub and the local Science Learning Partnership.
This is a real opportunity to lead one of the country's top state schools, and to join the Trust as it moves into an exciting phase of development.
