Greenmount Community Primary School is a “Good” school (Ofsted 2016) located in Ryde, the largest town on the Isle of Wight. Greenmount is a two-form entry school with 411 pupils on roll a governor led pre-school and a resourced provision for pupils with ASD. Both Ryde and the school benefit from close proximity to the mainland, just twenty minutes away by ferries or hovercraft, while benefiting from the manifest advantages of Island life.

Our highly respected Headteacher is retiring in August 2019 after 20 years, creating the opportunity for a proven school leader to make their own mark in a characterful and inclusive environment where children’s learning is central to a broad and balanced curriculum.

  • Is a skilled communicator, able to effectively share their vision for the school with children, parents & carers, governors and the wider community;

  • Is ambitious for the school, will value pupils as individuals and will take pride in their achievements; and

  • Has a clear vision of how their leadership will positively impact the education of all the children that will be in their care.

In return, Greenmount offers:

  • A dedicated staff and a supportive, challenging governing body who are passionate about delivering the best outcomes for each and every pupil.

  • An energetic & hardworking school community who make a significant contribution to the fabric of school life.

  • A strong and focused senior leadership team.
