An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced Headteacher seeking a new challenge to lead two ‘Outstanding’ schools.

The Local Committee of the Highfield Schools in partnership with the Trustees of the Nexus Education Schools Trust, invite applications for the post of Headteacher for Highfield Infants’ and Highfield Junior Schools.

The schools are high achieving and outward looking, with a very strong ethos focussing on the development of the whole child through an exciting curriculum.

An experienced Headteacher with:

· Excellent leadership skills, the ability to motivate all stakeholders and to foster a culture of enthusiasm and positivity.

· The ability to manage split sites and foster close working practices between the schools.

· A track record of driving school improvement forward through high quality teaching and learning.

· The will to develop the whole child through outstanding achievement in all curricular and extra-curricular activities.

· Motivation to work in partnership with NEST and its partner schools.

What can we offer?

· Enthusiastic, engaged and hardworking pupils who enjoy learning, have positive attitudes and who are proud of their schools.

· A dedicated, motivated and highly skilled team of leaders, teachers, support staff, local committee members and parents.

· Professional, diligent and committed trustees.

· The support of the NEST Multi Academy Trust and its partner schools.

· Wider opportunities for staff, pupils and communities within the MAT. 

· A unique learning environment with excellent sporting and music provision in our Infant and Junior schools.
