L17 to L22 ( £62,570 to £70,745)
The Governors wish to appoint a dynamic and inspirational Deputy Headteacher. We are looking for an exceptional candidate who will be excited to take a leading role and make a significant contribution to our journey as we get back on track and provide the very best for the children who have been entrusted to us.
As the title implies, you will deputise for the Headteacher, and support the wider leadership team, in implementing our very ambitious improvement plans to secure outstanding provision for the young people who have been entrusted into our care by their families.
Whilst the principal responsibility of our current Deputy Headteacher is Pastoral Care, there is sufficient talent and flexibility within the SLT to adapt to embrace the skills and experience of the successful applicant. Additionally, whilst there will be a teaching commitment, there is absolutely no preference with regard to subject specialism, and so please don’t allow that to be a factor when considering your application.
Applying for the job
Application forms and further details are available via the school website, or by contacting the school. Candidates are more than welcome, indeed encouraged, to visit the school prior to application, or, in light of Covid current restrictions, candidates may prefer to call to discuss the opportunity.

About Cardinal Allen Catholic High School, Fleetwood
The school is named after William Allen, a Lancashire man, who was born in 1532 and is known to have lived as a young boy at Rossall near to the site of the school. William Allen founded the English Seminary at Douai and the English College in Rome in order that young Englishmen could be trained as priests during the Reformation and return to England to keep alive the Catholic faith.
Our 800 pupils form a friendly, open school in which discipline is good and where a high value is placed on order, respect for others and endeavour. This means that we can be rightly ambitious for all our pupils and encourage them all to have high expectations. We are once again oversubscribed for September 2021 having received nearly 400 applications for the 166 places available.
Our school is constantly striving to achieve higher standards as reported in our Ofsted Report, and in our Section 48 Denominational Inspection Report which described us as an “Outstanding Catholic School”. We recently enhanced our status as a Fairtrade school by being designated a FairAchiever School, we are one of only twelve Eco Ambassador Schools in the country, we were recently redesignated a Full International School by the British Council. We have held SGQM Centre of Excellence status for several years and we are a strategic partner in the Catholic Teaching Alliance. We are also the current National Eco School of the Year – a magnificent achievement.
