Job summary

Do you have the vision, passion and energy to inspire our students and staff?
This is an exciting time to start your journey at CGA. You will be joining a strong, committed
team who have a real sense of pride in the work they do and who will support and challenge
you. We are looking for two inspiring Deputy Headteachers to lead on either Curriculum and
Assessment or Inclusion and Engagement.
We are an over-subscribed 11-19 academy with a diverse and enthusiastic student body
and highly skilled staff. We have exceptional outcomes at Key Stage 4 and 5 and provide a
welcoming and inclusive learning environment where students are safe, valued and accepted.
If you have the experience and passion to be an inspirational role model for our next
generation of female leaders, then we are keen to see how we can support you in that
pursuit. We particularly welcome applications from candidates from groups who are underrepresented
in school leadership. We recognise that what people bring through their
personal experiences, background and identity significantly enhances our ability to deliver for
our students, staff, parents and wider community.
Visits to the academy and pre-application conversations are welcomed.
Clapton Girls’ Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children
and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The
successful candidate will be DBS checked at an enhanced level before any offer is made.

About Clapton Girls' Academy

Thank you for your interest in the Deputy Headteacher positions at Clapton Girls’ Academy.
I thought it was important to include some information about me, the Deputy Headteacher roles, our existing leadership team and what we are looking for.
Our longstanding deputy is relocating and we are using this as an opportunity to move to a two deputy structure and therefore make two appointments with a focus on Curriculum and Assessment and Inclusion and Engagement. Specific roles and responsibilities will be agreed on appointment, through discussion
with the successful candidates and reflection on existing expertise within our team. Both new postholders will line manage a number of Assistant Headteachers, faculty areas and a year group.
I am moving into my thirteenth year at Clapton Girls’ Academy this September and my fifth year as
Headteacher. I started here as Head of Year 7 and KS2/3 Transition Lead and have held various positions of responsibility across the Leadership Team prior to becoming Headteacher. I am an English teacher and continue to be involved in teaching and/or cover.
Being Headteacher at CGA is a real privilege. Our students are passionate about learning, our staff are fully committed to doing their best for every student and we are really lucky to have a stunning campus feel site in a great Hackney location.
Leading the school through the pandemic has presented its fair share of challenges but staff, students and parents have been incredibly supportive. Our strategic long-term response to the pandemic will be an ongoing focus for our team and the two new post-holders.
As a Leadership Team we are strong and committed. We have a real sense of purpose and take pride in the work we do. It is really important to us that whoever we appoint is fully committed to our values and school culture. We want people that really want to work here and with our students. The last page of this booklet provides links to our website to help you get more of a sense of us and our current priorities.
Applicants who have a genuine interest in working with us and have experience of leading on
curriculum and assessment and/or inclusion and engagement are encouraged to apply. Your lived and professional experiences are very important to us and whilst we don’t necessarily need you to be the finished article, you will need to be able to demonstrate your personal impact and experience in these areas.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, I look forward to receiving your application and to meeting you.
