Teaching is the most rewarding job in the world. We have the opportunity to change students’ lives for the better and you could make a positive impact at Woolwich Polytechnic for Girls as Assistant Headteacher.

We are looking for a motivated and inspirational leader who is committed to improving the academic outcomes for every single one of our students. Our school’s vision is ‘Success for Everyone’ and our Key Stage 4 Raising Standards Leader will play a pivotal role in ensuring that this is achieved.

Here at Woolwich Polytechnic School for Girls, we place significant value on our professional working relationships with others and, therefore, we are looking for an individual who not only has excellent inter-personal skills but also has a track record of forming strong working relationships with a range of stakeholders to achieve a shared vision and goal.
