Assistant Head Teacher job summary

If you're the one we're looking for, you're probably not looking for us. You are a star in your school, a ‘4 o clock guru’ to whom the other teachers turn for wisdom. Your headteacher values you, the families love you and all is rosy in your garden. You are on the recruitment page in a moment of idle curiosity before resuming your Olympic-level feats of pedagogy. You are perusing the adverts for the makings of an idea and the off-chance that something might tickle your fancy. We want to be your off-chance.

We have a group of highly motivated sparky, sparkly professionals who are already on the surge in their practice in our ASD department. They need a leader who has a soft hand on the reins, a guider, not a teller, a listener who makes their words count. This gang will storm the bastions for a lucky leader with a light touch, a right touch. Their new leader will know when to innovate and when to consolidate, when to reflect, when to deflect, a rock in a crisis and a wisp in a tailwind, will be of them and not above them.

When we offer you this plum job, it will be because of your passion for working with amazing learners, for your premium dream of best learning, for the joy you take from learners learning and teachers learning. In return for your fantastic-ness we will offer you free tea and coffee, a place in our car park (almost every day) a tasty but not over-filling salary, and a berth on the bridge of a super school.

Your know-how and our can-do will be a match made in Heaven.
