Park House School is working in partnership with Transform Learning Trust, as they seek to appoint a Principal to lead this thriving secondary school in its next exciting stage of development.

Park House School is a growing 11-18 secondary school with 1208 students on roll including the Sixth Form. As a former Sports College, the school provides outreach provision to 57 primary schools, and excels in performing arts and IT. In 2019, the school was identified as one of 30 hubs representing the ‘National Centre for Computing Education’ (NCCE) supporting schools across the South-Central region.

There is an exciting new building project about to commence to create a new school library resource centre, three classrooms and a meeting room. This is due for completion in summer 2022 and you will have the opportunity to have an input throughout the build.

We are looking for an experienced Principal or Head Teacher determined to take on a new challenge, who would like to join a ‘Good’ school with huge potential for future growth and development, and who is able to support the school to provide an outstanding education for its students. You will need to be an inspiring and transformational leader who is looking to make a real difference, by embedding a culture of continuous improvement. In exchange, we offer a great place for staff and students to work and learn.

Transform Learning Trust was established in September 2018, with Park House school as its first school, and we are now looking to expand and take on new schools. The Principal will be instrumental in supporting the Trust with its plans for growth.

We are looking for a Principal who has:

  • the ability to lead and inspire the school and trust community, with excellent interpersonal skills and a track record of successfully managing teams
  • passion and enthusiasm to lead this thriving school to deliver an outstanding education to its students
  • excitement at the prospect of supporting a newly established trust with its expansion plans.

We would welcome the opportunity to meet you. If you would like to discuss the post further, or would like to visit the school, we would be pleased to speak to you. Please email to make further arrangements.
