What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking to appoint an inspirational Deputy Headteacher at Esher Church of England High School. This is an exciting time to be joining the School and the Trust. This post offers an outstanding opportunity to be part of a highly cohesive senior leadership team, giving the successful candidate the chance to lead the school’s culture and inclusion. This post is for candidates who might currently be a Deputy Headteacher looking for your next move or an experienced Assistant Headteacher; what matters most is you bring a clear vision of what a truly exceptional comprehensive school looks like, and you have the drive and ambition to make that a reality.

The right candidate will bring experience leading in a pastoral role, having had significant impact on the culture and climate of their school. This is a new post, adding to the structure to provide strategic leadership of the areas of behaviour and attitudes, safeguarding (including e-safety), personal development, attendance, rewards and house systems.

You will be an inspiring leader, with a natural flair for challenging and empowering others to continuously improve and strive for excellence. This will be supported by an expert knowledge of behaviour and attitudes, personal development and student wellbeing.

You will have the opportunity to work with a talented team of senior leaders, middle leaders and a strong central trust team, all working together to create an environment where every member of the school community can flourish.

If you share our vision based on the unshakeable belief that children learn through all aspects of their daily lives and that their values and knowledge, experiences and habits are as important as their academic qualifications, we would be delighted to hear from you.

What the school offers its staff

A comprehensive induction programme is provided for all new staff. We are committed to continual bespoke professional development opportunities, e.g. access to peer coaching, a 1% improvement culture and personalised training.

Further details about the role

An informal meeting and tour of the school is encouraged.

If you are interested in a preliminary visit, please contact Mrs McLeod, PA to the Headteacher, on:head@esherhigh.surrey.sch.uk.

Commitment to safeguarding

Shortlisted candidates will be asked to complete a self-declaration of their criminal record or information that would make them unsuitable to work with children. This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment. Please refer to the school website for further information regarding our Child Protection & Safeguarding policy. Any successful applicants will be required to undertake an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service.
