The Trustees of the Athelstan Trust wish to appoint an excellent teacher and school leader to the post of Headteacher at Bradon Forest School from September 2019.

The Athelstan Trust is a Multi-Academy Trust formed in 2015 consisting of three secondary Schools (Malmesbury School, Bradon Forest School and The Dean Academy) in Wiltshire and Gloucestershire.

Bradon Forest is a successful and popular 11-16 school with approximately 1,000 students on roll in the rural village of Purton, surrounded by stunning Wiltshire countryside with easy access to the M4.  Bradon Forest School was inspected in April 2016 and judged Good in all areas. All the schools share a deep commitment to delivering an excellent comprehensive education to all the students in the Trust.

At Bradon Forest, we continue to update and develop our attractive site following the construction of our new state of the art sports hall in 2016, adding a new food and textiles block in the spring of 2018. Our mix of modern and traditional learning environments gives our school a unique, individual feel that is welcomed by students and parents alike. We provide a friendly, caring, creative and purposeful environment. Students are encouraged to take every opportunity given to them both academically and in extra-curricular activities. We strive to develop confident young adults who show both respect and resilience and who have high aspirations for their futures.

This is a very exciting time to be joining the Trust where we all work together to raise standards in all our schools.  This post offers a talented and ambitious school leader a wonderful opportunity to work in a supportive Trust that is committed to high quality Professional Development for its staff.  We are in the early stages of developing a new joint sixth form with Malmesbury School.

Closing Date: 12 noon on Monday 7th January 2019

Interviews on 17th and 18th January 2019.
