What skills and experience we're looking for

Required from Tuesday 27 August 2024, a colleague with a proven track record of fostering high standards and excellence, to join our senior leadership team. The successful candidate will be expected to lead the Mathematics, Business and Computing Faculty, but will also be rewarded for such a key responsibility by becoming part of the senior leadership team. This is an exciting time as the faculty has recently expanded to incorporate new subjects and results reached an all-time high last year.

The successful candidate will probably take a lead on an aspect of school performance data collection, analysis, tracking and intervention. This will be alongside their effective leadership of a team of individuals who may be teaching a combination of the faculty subjects. They might have new ideas about curriculum design and will definitely be interested in maintaining the already high levels of interest, joy and motivation in the subjects offered.
