The Eastern Multi-Academy Trust is seeking to appoint an exceptional Principal to lead King Edward VII Academy on the next stage of its journey. 2018 results were the best since it became an Academy in 2014, but there is still work to be done. As a strong candidate, you will feel passionate about leading learning in a large school with a long history.

King Edward VII Academy is the largest Academy within the Eastern Multi-Academy Trust. It is an 11-18 secondary Academy with a maximum student body of 1100 for years 7-11 and 300 for its Sixth Form. Formerly a grammar school, it is housed in historic Grade 2 Listed buildings with extensive grounds which are a landmark in King’s Lynn. 

We are looking for an experienced Principal or an ambitious, driven Deputy to reinvigorate this Academy to maximise its unique character and build on the improvements to academic achievements already made. Our new Principal will be committed to providing students with an excellent education, ensuring high aspirations for all. You will need to be a good communicator, with a clear vision and a desire to motivate and enthuse both staff and students.

The successful candidate will have a high profile in the community, representing the Trust and Academy with integrity and pride. You will be wholly supportive of our mission which is to “transform lives and communities,” and our values which are empower, motivate, aspire and transform.
