What skills and experience we're looking for

We seek an enthusiastic, dedicated and outstanding Assistant Progress Leader, who is ready for a leadership position in a highly ambitious school.

You will need to be a practitioner who consistently delivers high quality teaching to both key stages with the ability to inspire, engage and motivate students. You will also need to have excellent communication skills, demonstrate initiative and be a strong team player. If appointed you would be joining a science leadership team that already has a Progress Leader and Assistant Progress Leader. The appointment would therefore increase the level of capacity in driving forward science outcomes.

What the school offers its staff

Up Holland High School is a happy and harmonious place to be where students are highly-motivated and have the opportunity to be inspired and succeed. We were recognised in May 2023 by Ofsted as ‘Good’ in all areas of school, but with the capacity to improve still further. We believe that our strong collaboration with students, staff, parent/carers and governors continues to contribute towards the success of the school. This is the third successive ‘Good’ judgment the school has secured. The school aspires to move from ‘Good’ to ‘Great’ and we are seeking a professional that shares that level of ambition, a professional that can model our Dedication to Excellence in all that they do.

If appointed you can expect full-support and continuing professional development, as we promote a model of leadership at all levels and a bespoke and tailored CPD programme. We offer a professionally stimulating working environment where teachers have the opportunity to progress and most critically to positively impact on the lives of our students.

Commitment to safeguarding

Up Holland High School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Successful applicants will need to undertake a DBS enhanced clearance, including checks with past employers. Please note that in line with Keeping Children Safe in Education online searches will be carried out as part of our due diligence on shortlisted candidates.
