We are looking for an ambitious leader to take the school forward on its journey. Our school is located in the county town of Taunton and was rated Good by Ofsted in December 2018. We have the advantage of a generous site in a pleasant community location, with over 450 children including our Nursery. We are passionate about CPD for our staff, as we strive to support everyone’s progression. The school was a founding member of the Bath & Wells Multi Academy Trust in 2013.

Our children are highly motivated, passionate about learning and continue to benefit from the enrichment of a multi-cultural environment. Their attitude to learning is excellent and the teacher/child relationship has played an essential part in taking the school forward.

You will be an inspirational leader with strong interpersonal skills, who can motivate both staff and children. Effective communication with parents and the wider community is essential, as is collaboration with other schools within and outside the Multi Academy Trust.

The Bath & Wells Multi Academy Trust offers a supportive network of professionals, collaborative working, excellent professional development opportunities, enhanced employee benefits and a people offer centred on our visions and values.
