Lymm High School is also a lovely place in which to work; in addition to our good fortune with our physical surroundings, staff are exceptionally positive, committed and supportive. The potential here is immense and the successful applicant will have a key role in our continued development at a crucial time.

Following the appointment of the previous postholder to deputy headship, we are looking to appoint an assistant headteacher who has:

· A thorough understanding of what excellent teaching entails and how best to support colleagues in improving their practice

· A similarly sound understanding of how to build a rich and appropriately challenging curriculum across a school

· A secure track record of delivering excellent levels of achievement (most likely as a head of department)

· The energy, drive and resilience to make a tangible difference as an assistant head in a large and ambitious school

· The integrity, moral purpose, presence and emotional intelligence necessary to inspire confidence from staff, students and parents

The specific responsibilities will be decided according to the particular strengths of the successful candidate, but the primary focus will be on developing the quality of teaching and the curriculum across the school.

Headteacher. If, prior to submitting an application, you would like to see for yourself why we believe this is such a fabulous school in which to work and why the post itself is so exciting, then do not hesitate to contact us to arrange a (socially distanced) visit.

This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this legal requirement. The successful applicant's appointment will be subject to satisfactory pre-employment clearances including a Disclosure and Barring Service check.
