You must be able to demonstrate the capacity to offer exceptional leadership and managerial skills.

The successful candidate will join a team of 2 STLAs.

This role is full time to allow for whole academy leadership development across the other sites. You will have proven success in leading a team in delivering a personalised curriculum to pupils with a broad range of needs including challenging behaviour and communication difficulties in either mainstream, Special or AP provisions. You will have experience of building excellent relationships with pupil, staff, parents, governors, other schools and officers in a multi-academy trust and the local community.

The Assistant Headteacher role will require the successful candidate to be child centred, solution focused and approach leadership through policies, systems and processes.
