Are you an exceptional leader?

The Governing Body of Plymouth Studio School is looking to appoint an ambitious and inspirational leader with a proven track record of successful educational leadership to join the school in April 2017.

Sponsored by City College Plymouth and the University of St Mark & St John, Plymouth Studio School provides a new and innovative approach to learning for 14 to 19 year olds, offering a unique way to combine academic and sporting excellence with skills for future careers.

The School offers a combination of GCSEs, A levels and BTEC qualifications combined with specialist pathways in Sports Performance, Sports Development & Coaching and Sports Management, alongside work placement and mentoring opportunities. The School works with Olympic and Commonwealth level coaches and has access to world-class sports performance facilities.

With a maximum of 300 student places, Plymouth Studio School provides small class sizes, focussing on personalised, tailored learning, allowing each student to reach their full potential - giving them a chance to combine their sporting achievements and training with academic excellence and a variety of career paths.

For non-sports students, a Professional route allows students to study for their traditional academic qualifications in a motivating and stimulating environment.

You may be an existing Principal or Head Teacher, or someone looking to make their first move into a role such as this, leading the school in its brand new, £4m accommodation.

Closing Date: Noon, Wednesday 30 November 2016.
Interviews will take place during week commencing 05 December 2016.
