Are you a talented leader looking for a new challenge?  

If you are a current or aspiring Head Teacher, with the passion and commitment to lead our school through ongoing change and take it to the next level of successful performance, we would like to hear from you.  

Sir Thomas Wharton Academy joined the Maltby Learning Trust in April 2017 and has embarked on a journey of rapid improvement. The students are positive in their outlook, willing and ready to learn and their parents greatly value their children’s education and the work of the school. We are working hard to secure a consistency of approach and high standards in everything we do and are establishing strong links with the other secondary Academy in the Trust. Many staff work collaboratively across the Trust, sharing planning and resources and engaging in professional learning and development.  

We are looking for a forward thinking leader who will embrace all these opportunities, implement an agreed framework for school improvement and take the Academy to the next level of educational excellence. The person appointed will be a natural leader, with the ability to work collaboratively with colleagues at a strategic level within the Trust. It is crucial that you have a sound understanding of the new progress measures and how to achieve success within these parameters. Equally as important, is that you understand and are committed to working with local partners as part of a broader community transformation agenda.
