Job summary

We are seeking to appoint an Assistant Vice Principal/Head of House (with responsibility for Character Development) who fits with the ethos of our school and is passionate about pastoral care and high standards. The successful candidate will work in collaboration with the Senior Leadership Team to ensure outstanding leadership and management within the academy and will also lead our agenda to develop ‘character’ through our INSIGHT programme by evidencing the organisation and impact of the Academy’s personal development offer.

Our pastoral system is based around four Houses, each of which is organised into mentor groups in years 7-13. Houses each have an identity and compete in sport and other activities. The Head of House builds team spirit, strives to know every child and their family, sets out the standards for behaviour and achievement and ensures that students develop in a comfortable and safe environment. Each Head of House is supported by a Deputy Head of House. There is a designated area in the school building which houses all the pastoral team.

This post has arisen due to the promotion of the existing post holder.
