Balby Carr Community College, currently going through an exciting period of development and soon to join the Astrea Academy Trust, is seeking a talented Vice Principal to join their Senior Leadership Team. Balby Carr is a vibrant and rapidly improving 11-18 Community Academy with over 1300 students, state of the art sporting facilities and a thriving Sixth Form.

The Astrea Academy Trust is a multi-academy trust which is committed to inspiring beyond measure. Our Academies – primary, secondary and all-through – do not subscribe to the ‘schooling’ stance of a results-driven philosophy but rather state emphatically that education is about much more than just attainment. The Trust is committed to high quality professional development and career opportunities for all staff, we are also passionate about cultivating our own talented workforce.

With an over-arching focus on their students, through delivering higher standards of teaching and learning, the staff at Balby Carr Community College encourage pupils to achieve their best every day to enable them to go on to fulfil their hopes and dreams. Named as a Specialist Sports and Science College, it is home to several sporting Academies, including Football, Golf and Sports Medicine. It also has a thriving Music and Drama department and a fantastic sixth form centre which incorporates an Internet Café and Media Studio.

We are seeking an enthusiastic leader with drive, vision and a commitment to improving Achievement. The Vice Principal will lead the development of Achievement and Curriculum at the Academy to ensure continued, rapid improvements in educational outcomes. This exciting role will see the Vice Principal ensuring a realistic, consistent and continuous academy-wide focus on student achievement as well as celebrating the achievements of colleagues and students alike. You will need the ability to communicate a vision that inspires, motivates and enthuses staff, children and the community as a whole.

Candidates will need to demonstrate:

· Excellent interpersonal skills to lead, motivate and inspire staff and students to reach the highest levels of achievement

· Outstanding classroom teaching

· The ability to operate at a strategic level including effective use of data

· A track record of successful outcomes

With twenty academies within the group across South Yorkshire and Cambridgeshire, plus the purpose built, all-though Astrea Academy Sheffield due to open in September 2018, the Trust continues to grow and inspire beyond measure. To complement the intrinsic rewards which we award to our teachers and to demonstrate our commitment to them, in September 2017 the Astrea Academy Trust awarded all teaching staff a 2% pay increase which was above the recommended increase of 1% from the School Teachers Review Body.

If you are motivated by contributing to a culture of constant improvement, and if you are seeking to improve outcomes for young people, then we would love to hear from you. We welcome all applicants who meet the criteria in the accompanying recruitment pack to apply for this exciting role via the application process.
