We require for Easter 2023 a dynamic, hardworking and committed teacher to join our Leadership Team as Assistant Principal - Teaching and Learning. Any subject area can be considered. This is a rare opportunity to cover for a colleague going on maternity leave, with the security that the role is available as a fixed term contract for one year.

This is an exciting opportunity to join our Academy to work at a senior level working with highly motivated staff, enthusiastic students, supportive parents and knowledgeable and effective Local Governing Body. We are a hardworking, dedicated and supportive learning community, we truly believe that Lord Grey Can.

The core purpose of the role is to ensure standards of teaching and learning are consistently high in line with Academy values and to be responsible for the developing and enhancing our shared pedagogical approach to teaching and learning across our faculties. Teaching and learning is a huge strength at Lord Grey but there are some key areas that we are hoping to consolidate and push on even further. Are you the person who will help us get there?
