The Trust and Governing Body of Tudor Grange Samworth Academy are seeking to appoint an outstanding leader to be our next Principal.

Tudor Grange Samworth Academy is a mixed “all-through school” for children from 3 to 16 years of age.  As a Church of England school, Tudor Grange Samworth Academy is guided by a caring Christian ethos and maintains its close links with St Christopher’s Church.

On 1st January 2016, the school became a member of the Tudor Grange Academies Trust.  Historical difficulties meant that the school needed expertise and help to remove it from the category of “special measures”.  The school sought a partnership that would enable it to develop excellence in all areas and enable all to flourish.

The Academy now requires a leader who can build on this vision and continue to drive change and improvement.  The successful applicant will be an exceptional person with inspirational leadership skills and the expertise to manage and lead the Academy’s future development.  They will be well supported by the Trust.  We welcome applicants interested in progressing to executive leadership posts.

Safeguarding and welfare of children and young people with all staff collaborating in this commitment is at the core of the Trust.  The successful applicant will be required to have an Enhanced DBS check in line with the government’s safer recruitment guidelines.

The Trust values the diversity of our workforce and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
