Humberston Academy is a high-achieving, successful academy which provides a world-class education. In 2017, 81% of our students achieved the new GCSE standard of 9-4 in English and 78% of our students achieved the same measure in GCSE Maths. This puts Humberston Academy in the top 15% of schools nationally for progress on this measure and in the top 10% for progress overall, and we continue to exceed and excel.

We are an outstanding Academy and proud of our exceptionally high standards; but it’s not all about academic achievement. A growing, consistently oversubscribed, hard-working Academy, we have a distinctive, positive, business-like and purposeful atmosphere where students can develop and broaden their horizons. We have extensive playing fields, plus a comprehensive range of fully-equipped specialist teaching rooms, and six computer suites.

Our new Principal will be building on a long period of sustained achievement, and we will be looking for a compelling blend of experience, innovation, and ambition for the school. You will bring a visible, whole-school leadership profile, and the ability to maximise the effectiveness of a high-performing and motivated staff group. We’re particularly interested in your vision for maintaining and extending overall achievement for students; the strongest candidates will also demonstrate the potential to make a system-level contribution across the Trust.
