Focus Learning School Newtown

Salary : Negotiable / Competitive 

Closing date: Friday 1st December

Due to the retirement of the current post holder, the Trustees are looking to appoint an outstanding Headteacher to lead our Newtown campus from September 2018. We are a small, successful Y3-13 mixed independent school with a strong Christian ethos located in the small town of Newtown in Powys, just across the English border.

The school has undergone a rapid and sustained transformation in recent times and is a strong member of the OneSchool organisation (the largest body of independent schools in the world). The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate capacity to take us even further. Self-Directed Learning and the emotional intelligence of students are now critical next steps for a talented leader.

The school was judged to be “Good with Excellent features in Estyn’s 2016 inspection. 

We are looking to appoint an exceptional leader who has the vision and dedication to build upon the strong foundations already in place. The school benefits from extremely engaged students, a conducive teaching and learning environment and a talented and committed staff. 

Visits to the school are actively encouraged.

To find out more about the school and the role, to request an application pack and to book a visit, please contact Tim Bamber at Focus Learning Trust on 07384 240630 or at

Focus Learning Trust is committed to the welfare and safeguarding of children, and as such the post is subject to an enhanced DBS check.
