An exciting opportunity has arisen for an energetic and inspiring new Headteacher to lead our Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ Junior School. The current Head is retiring after 18 years and we are seeking a successor who will build on the School’s existing high standards while bringing to the role their own leadership experience, skills, ideas and commitment to excellence.

Honeywell Junior School is a three-form entry school situated between Wandsworth and Clapham Commons in South London. The School has a distinct identity but works closely with the Infant School through a joint Governing Body, a shared vision and active collaboration between the Heads.

Honeywell Junior School has a fantastic reputation and benefits from a valued and motivated teaching staff, a strong leadership team, committed pupils, a supportive Parents, Teachers and Friends Association (which provides many additional resources) and long-standing links to the community.  The School is proud to provide an enriching and positive learning environment for all its pupils.

Our Next Headteacher will:

  • Provide strategic leadership with a view to developing and improving an already outstanding school which places the rights of the child at its core
  • Lead by example and model best practice regarding professional conduct, workload and personal development
  • Work collaboratively to formulate the aims and objectives of the School and steer the School to achieve them
