We are looking for an inspirational school leader, with a clear strategic vision and the ability to support and develop staff and students alike. Alongside having strong leadership skills and the ability to inspire and motivate a team, you will be an outstanding practitioner with a strong and consistent record of success, who will be committed to raising the achievement of all learners.

This position would suit an experienced Middle Leader or a current Assistant, who is looking to increase their leadership skills and impact. The post holder will be a member of the School Leadership Team and as such will have additional areas of whole school responsibility.
