Sheffield Park Academy is located on modern £30m campus in Sheffield, close to major transport arteries and with commuting potential from much of South Yorkshire and the North West including Leeds, Bradford, York, Pontefract and Wakefield.

Sheffield Park Academy is part of United Learning, with a mission to bring out ‘the best in everyone’ and improve the life chances of the children and young people in their care.

As a member of our Yorkshire cluster, the academy has achieved sustained academic success and was pleased to be identified as one of the ‘top 25 schools in the country for pupil progress’ by the New Schools Network in 2017.  Whilst rightly proud of our achievements, following the internal promotion of the existing Principal, we are now looking for an experienced and inspirational leader to shape the next phase of our development.

This is a unique opportunity – the scale of the role, together with the support and development opportunities afforded by United Learning will ensure a richly rewarding role for the successful applicant.

The role may attract a candidate with Headship / Head of School experience within a smaller school or 11 to 16 environment or an ambitious Headteacher or (significantly experienced) Deputy Headteacher in a similar school who is looking to move onto the next phase of their career.  Regardless, you must be someone who will make a profound and lasting positive difference to our wonderful pupils and community.

Further details and a full application pack are available from our advisers ASDTi by visiting and downloading from by e-mailing or by calling 01457 851407. Please do not apply directly to United Learning or the academy for this vacancy.

Potential candidates are welcome to contact our advisers ASDTi on 01457 851407 or 07736 775776 to arrange a visit to the academy. ASDTi are available during the school day, in the evenings and at weekends to answer your questions and arrange visits.

Closing date for applications: Monday 5th February 2018 at 11.00pm.
Interviews will be held on 8th and 9th March 2018.
