We require an inspiring and aspirational Assistant Headteacher to join our already successful and strong Senior Leadership Team, working with them to help steward, develop and lead our school into the future. You will need to be someone who can demonstrate: impact in role, over a minimum of 3 years in a middle-leadership role, or SLT, bringing about developments in teaching and learning, pastoral and/ or curriculum improvement. You will have experience in more than one school and have the requisite personal resilience, emotional stability and intelligence, commitment and stamina to be a school leader. You must be committed and able to inspire, lead and develop staff and students to be the best they can be.
Working at St. Mary’s is an extraordinary opportunity. We are passionately committed to developing staff and managing workload to ensure that colleagues enjoy their work and recognise St. Mary’s as an almost-uniquely positive place to teach and enjoy their careers.
Our previous OFSTED inspection judged us as Outstanding in every category, and our most recent S48 Inspection (2018) also judged us as Outstanding in every area. KS4 performance is strong, with well above average P8 figures. At A Level we have a high proportion of A*-B Grades with students enrolling at Russell Group Universities, including Oxbridge, and a range of high-quality degree apprenticeships.
The school is in very strong shape, educationally, financially and in our Catholic Life: Our Academic performance figures are consistently strong; our school has enjoyed a £7m refurbishment programme over the last few years (completed April 2022), the school has expanded to 6FE (with one year group at 7FE), and demand for school places has never been higher; our Section 48 report gives you a true flavour of the school – students enjoy coming to school and there are deep foundations with a strong Catholic ethos running through the entire school.
We can offer you a dedicated and supportive Governing Body, highly supportive parents, motivated staff and students, and a fantastic environment in which to work.
You will find more information in the Assistant Headteacher Recruitment Information pack, and if you are supportive of the aims and objectives of our Catholic ethos have the commitment, professional and personal skills to help lead our school, then we look forward to hearing from you.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. A DBS disclosure is required for all successful applicants. St Mary’s is committed to the equality of opportunity for all applicants.
St. Mary’s is committed to keeping children safe and upholding their safeguarding responsibility.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Miss Deirdre McHugh, Deputy Headteacher
