Job summary

Ashby School sits at the threshold of something amazing!
In August 2022 we welcome our first ever Year 7 students to grow through to our existing 14-18 provision.
We’d love for you to be part of this story!

The newly appointed Headteacher of Ashby School is seeking to appoint a Deputy Headteacher with responsibility for our Curriculum vision and the relentless pursuit of progress for our students. This post will sit alongside our current Deputy Headteacher for Student Experience and will work closely with our four Assistant Headteachers and members of our extended leadership team. The successful applicant will also work with our amazing students to grow their broad experience of school, support them to love learning and equip them for a successful future regardless of ability or challenges.
Ashby is a school that has faced recent challenges. However, it is also a school with a proud history and a strong reputation in its local community. From these deep roots it has spread branches of collaboration within and beyond the LiFE multi-academy trust and is now ready to flourish in the next step of its growth though its revitalised leadership.
This role offers a unique experience to help shape a Key Stage 3 provision that echoes the strengths of our existing Key Stage 4 & 5 provision and yet is uniquely developed to grow successful future students in the broadest sense. Ashby School is the last Leicestershire upper school to change age-range and is incredibly fortunate to be doing so in conjunction with its feeder high schools of Ibstock & Ivanhoe under the umbrella of the LiFE multi-academy trust.
We very much hope that this is an opportunity that excites you. We are looking for an experienced leader with an appetite for innovation; a collaborator with a natural talent to lead others; a visionary with strategic skills to realise aims and an optimist who is not afraid of hard work. We look forward to receiving your application!
Further details and application information is available on the school website:

Closing date for applications is Monday 11 October 2021 at 9.00am

Interviews will take place on Tuesday 26 & Wednesday 27 October

Ashby School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all of its students and expects all staff to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be subject to enhanced clearance by the Disclosure and Barring Service and pre-employment checks.
