A rare opportunity has arisen to join our successful, happy and forward-thinking school as a Deputy Headteacher.
We are seeking an inspirational and experienced senior leader with the skills, enthusiasm, commitment and drive to make a significant contribution to the further development of our school in every area of our work. We will expect a lot of you; but in return you will have the opportunity to work with a fantastic staff and an amazing group of students and to make a real difference.
Whether you are currently a Deputy Headteacher looking to broaden your experience in a different context, or an Assistant Headteacher looking to take the next step in your career, we would very much like to hear from you. It doesn’t matter if you’ve not worked in a selective school before; whatever your journey to date, what matters most to us is that you share the Headteacher and the SLG’s commitment to doing everything we can for the betterment of our students and staff.
Dover Grammar School for Boys is a selective school with a school roll of 800 students. Approximately 200 of these are in the Sixth Form. Girls are admitted to the Sixth Form.
DGSB is on a very exciting journey. Having retained our "Good " OFSTED designation, without condition, in October 2019, we are working hard on every aspect of what we do as we want to become even better. We moved into a £26m new school building in July 2022 and our new accommodation provides us with modern, bright, spacious teaching rooms, and has increased opportunities for students both inside and outside of the taught curriculum.
However, our success both in school – we recorded a fantastic Progress 8 score in 2023 of +0.57 - and within the local community means that we are already looking to expand our site and develop opportunities further.
DGSB is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our students and expect all staff to share in this commitment. Successful candidates will be required to undergo appropriate child protection screening including an enhanced DBS check. An ‘online presence’ check may be carried out before any appointment is confirmed. All appointments are subject to the receipt of satisfactory references.
Non-contributory access to the Benenden Healthcare Scheme is offered to successful candidates.
