Jane Austen College
Be part of the Jane Austen College story! We are seeking to appoint an Assistant Principal at our thriving academic and inclusive school situated in the heart of Norwich. This is an opportunity to be part of a collaborative community who are dedicated to ensuring students develop the knowledge and character needed to lead great lives.
Teachers flourish in the supportive but intellectually challenging environment at Jane Austen College and being part of the Inspiration Trust provides excellent opportunities to continue your professional development amongst experts in the field. We place a high value on subject expertise and support teachers through centralised behaviour systems which ensure classrooms are joyful and productive. We believe that all students have the right to access a rich, academic curriculum, whilst also being given the opportunity to pursue a variety of cultural, artistic and sporting pursuits, regardless of background or disadvantage.
As an English and Humanities specialist school with a history of excellent results at both GCSE and A-Level, including STEM A-Levels as part of our unique collaboration with Sir Isaac Newton Sixth Form, it is true to say that our staff write a narrative of success for all our students; ensuring that they all have access to powerful knowledge and transformative extracurricular experiences.
To achieve these aspirational goals, we must have excellent standards of attendance and inclusion. We are looking for a leader who shares that belief to join our Senior Leadership Team as an Assistant Principal responsible for attendance. This Assistant Principal should also be a Maths specialist, as we are keen to grow our subject expertise in this area and value the insights that a Mathematician would bring to the senior team.
The successful candidate will be passionate about our vision of creating a truly academic and inclusive school, and embrace our school values: be kind, work hard, take responsibility. They will understand the importance of exceptionally high attendance and the value of working closely with staff, students and families to help every child attend every day; experiencing success and joy in their school life. They will be committed to implementing strategies on the ground as well as contributing to the strategic development of attendance, inclusion and Maths.
This is a unique opportunity for the right candidate to shape our ongoing story and contribute to exceptional standards of behaviour, attendance and character development.
