If you have the vision, the drive and the ambition we can offer an unparalleled opportunity to lead our school on its rapid journey of improvement.
St. John Fisher Catholic Academy is an 11-19 school with 1200 students on roll, we are part of the Blessed Peter Snow Catholic Academy Trust. This is a very exciting time for our Trust as we prepare to grow, becoming a trust of 16 Schools in 2020.
We are a Catholic community and strive to uphold strong spiritual and moral values, both in and outside the classroom. The School’s work is guided by the highest principles. It is our intention that the Catholicity of the school will be seen in our work with all who come into contact with it.
Life in the school is not without its challenges. In recent years there have been changes in leadership and an inspection in May 2019 indicated that the school needed to improve. This has provided powerful stimulus to the school community and we have acted strongly in response to the inspection. There have been significant changes in leadership, professional practice and in the culture of the school. We are now confident of our future as we work to create a good and eventually an outstanding school.
The Directors are seeking to appoint a Headteacher who:
- is a practising Catholic
- is an inspirational leader with a clear vision for the future of the school, building on its current capacity
- will lead by example, with a ‘can-do’ attitude that can inspire commitment from students, staff and the local community
- Who will work collaboratively with the other Trust schools as we expand
- has a proven track record of implementing changes and raising standards in teaching and learning, within a consistent, caring, accountable ethos
