Vice Principal (Outcomes)

The John Roan SchoolGreenwich

The John Roan School is part of United Learning, a large, and growing, group of schools aiming to offer a life changing education to children and young people across England.

Our schools work as a team and achieve more by sharing than any single school could. Our subject specialists, our Group-wide intranet, our own curriculum, and our online learning portal all help us share knowledge and resource, helping to simplify work processes and manage workloads for an improved work-life balance.

As a Group, we can reward our staff better: with good career opportunities, better pay, benefits, and ultimately, the satisfaction of helping children to succeed. We invest in our staff wellbeing. Our academies each have at least eight INSET days per year (with three of those solely dedicated to planning), and an ongoing group-wide wellbeing programme. It's an ethos we call ‘the best in everyone’.

The role

This is an exciting leadership position which would suit a highly motivated Assistant Principal looking to join a thriving school at a critical stage in its improvement.

The Vice Principal will lead, motivate and inspire students, staff, parents and the wider community, to ensure every student achieves ambitiously and gains the knowledge and qualifications to succeed in life and at work. 

It is an exciting opportunity for a candidate with the vision, experience and energy to shape a forward-thinking approach to assessment and standards that will secure rapid improvement for all students. 

We have ambitious plans for the future of The John Roan School and creating a rigorous academic ethos is at the centre of this. We believe that our children deserve only the best quality staff and so we recruit carefully and invest in training to ensure continuous improvement and an excellent quality of education.
