Assistant Headteacher job summary

Due to our continued growth, we are now seeking to appoint an exceptional Assistant Headteacher to join our school and to work within our dedicated and enthusiastic team.

Wixams is one of the most rapidly growing developments in the southern region, straddling the boundary of Central Bedfordshire and Bedford Borough, and is characterised by beautiful open countryside, lakes, and an aspirational and vibrant close-knit community. Sitting just south of Bedford it has grown rapidly over the last 10 years.

At full capacity by 2030, Wixams Academy will be a Year 7-13 secondary school and sixth form, for 1750 students. We currently have pupils from Year 7-13 and we are adding forms of entry each year to meet local demand. The Academy building provides the community with excellent state-of-the-art facilities throughout with significant extensions and additional sports facilities opening in September 2024.

We work closely with local primary schools including Lakeview, Wilstead and Wixams Tree Primary. Our collective aim is to create an outstanding educational offer for local families.

We are currently in the process of a voluntary merger with Knowledge Schools Trust and Wixams Academy and Wixams Tree Primary will join this larger Multi-Academy Trust in the Spring to create a hub in the region. This will not only create better career opportunities for our staff but will also enable us to work with other schools to share best-practice and innovation.

The full details of this role can be found in the attached applicant pack.

Visits to our school are warmly welcomed.
