What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic, inspirational and talented Leader to join our Senior Leadership Team.

This is a rare opportunity for an ambitious and visionary candidate to provide the strategic lead for safeguarding, attendance and student well-being and who is willing to take a shared responsibility for the strategic direction and development of the leadership role of Assistant Headteacher in respect of:

  • the school’s continued drive for excellence
  • the raising of attainment and achievement
  • the development of approaches to safeguarding and well-being
  • the strategic leadership for attendance and absence

What the school offers its staff

St Benedict’s is an 11-19 Catholic High School that serves a wide catchment area in West Cumbria. We are a true comprehensive with students of all abilities and diverse backgrounds.

Rated ‘Good with outstanding features’ by Ofsted, we are a larger than average school, housed in modern accommodation with extensive grounds.

Our school is situated on the Cumbrian coast on the edge of the Lake District National Park and not as remote as you might imagine! It is an easy drive or rail journey to work along some of the most scenic routes in the UK and living in Cumbria might be just the lifestyle change to suit you, with relatively low house prices. It really doesn’t rain all the time!

In January 2019 we moved to our new £33m school, which was individually designed (not an ‘off-the-shelf’ model!) and we have state of the art facilities including a full size, floodlit 4G astroturf pitch, sportshall, activity studio, pool, new grass pitches and tennis courts.

Commitment to safeguarding

St Benedict’s School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of its students. All applicants are subject to the requirements of the Safeguarding Children and Safer Recruitment in Education guidelines. This will include checks with past employers and the need for the successful applicant to hold or undergo a suitable enhanced DBS disclosure.
