What skills and experience we're looking for

Chorus Education Trust in Sheffield is seeking Assistant Headteachers to join the Senior Leadership Team at Westfield School. This role would suit experienced Assistant Heads seeking a new challenge, or middle leaders ambitious for the next stage in their career.

Owing to colleagues from Westfield’s Senior Leadership Team gaining promotions and taking on Trust-wide roles, we are excited to be able to recruit three Assistant Headteachers to three important areas of responsibility:

  • Assistant Headteacher leading Culture of Success
  • Assistant Headteacher leading Behaviour & Engagement
  • Assistant Headteacher leading Success for Vulnerable Students

Candidates should have a strong record of senior or middle leadership, working proactively and constructively with students, colleagues, and parents. It is essential that you can inspire and lead staff, and be a team player, supporting and coaching middle leaders and working in partnership with SLT colleagues. We are looking for people who are ambitious for our students and for themselves, with a strong commitment to their own professional learning. In return we can offer very strong opportunities for career development, and the opportunity to work within a positive, reflective, strategic and student-focused team.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a school on an exciting journey of improvement, but also a Trust that is committed to providing the very best opportunities for both staff and students. Chorus Education Trust is at an exciting time of growth and seeks to work in partnership with both primary and secondary schools across South Yorkshire and Derbyshire. Members of our schools’ Senior Leadership Teams will have the opportunity to work with their equivalent colleagues on developing cross-Trust strategies.

Westfield School is part of Chorus Education Trust, and as such all appointees may be required to work at any Trust site in the future.

What the school offers its staff

Benefits include:

  • CPD support from one of the largest Teaching Schools, the Sheffield Teaching School Alliance, throughout your career.
  • Opportunities to develop skills and experience as part of a growing, local Trust.
  • Our modern building has the full range of educational resources, as well as a gym and indoor pool (available free to staff).
