As a result of the continuing expansion of our curriculum and market share in the Southwest Sixth Form sector, we are seeking an experienced Vice Principal to join us on our growth journey assisting us to align our student experience in partnership with our extensive curriculum.

This is a key leadership role in our Catholic College, and as such, is identified strictly as a Reserved Post for a practising Catholic*. If this is you, we would love you to join us to further support the integration of our Christian ethos and mission across all we do.
