Instilling a lifelong love of learning

Fortismere continues to be a school of both great outcomes and even greater potential. Ambitious and inclusive; caring while demanding; collaborative, visionary and inspirational are all the words that would describe our school, and should describe our new leader.

We have all the right ingredients to make an even greater success of this fantastic school, which is recognised for providing an outstanding education whilst valuing the whole person. We have the highest expectations of every student, who in turn receive an excellent education that transforms their life chances.

Fortismere is a high-attaining, mixed foundation secondary school in the heart of Muswell Hill, North London with a strong tradition of excellence. But we are facing new challenges, and are looking for a new Headteacher who will maintain our high standards and liberal, inclusive ethos; motivate and retain talented staff; inspire a unique and diverse intake; successfully manage a diminishing budget, and oversee the redevelopment of the Sixth Form.

The right person will provide the strategic leadership that will engage all our stakeholders in the next chapter of our journey. Someone who is visible, talented, aspirational, inclusive and motivational, with a ‘can-do’ approach that has achievement and outcomes as a priority, will be very successful here. If this sounds like you, and if like us you are committed to comprehensive state education, and have an exceptional track record in senior leadership of a large secondary school then we would like to hear from you.
