Deputy Headteacher - Curriculum, Teaching and Learning job summary

We are looking for a passionate and experienced senior leader to join a newly restructured Senior Leadership Team. Bedale High School is a small but forward-thinking, rural secondary school, with big ambitions for our fantastic students. We are at an exciting stage of our journey following on from our Good Ofsted judgement in January 2019, and our intake for Year 7s for September 2022 has increased by almost 40% following recent years of strong academic outcomes and a concerted effort to become a school that our community can feel proud of.

Our outgoing Deputy Headteacher has played a crucial part in our improvements over recent years, and is a fitting example of how we commit to developing our staff to be the best they can be.

We know that the timeframe is short to recruit for September, but we believe we are an attractive option for any aspiring senior leader who wants to join a team of very committed individuals. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have a group who get on so well together, and share the same work ethic and team ethos that underpins our core values: courage, commitment, compassion.

You would be joining us at an exciting time on the school’s upward journey: our student roll is growing, we have a friendly and dedicated staff team and an incredibly supportive wider community
We can offer you the opportunity to work collaboratively with our primary and secondary partners for the benefit of all students in our community
We are active members of the Yorkshire Teaching School Alliance, which delivers innovative and high-quality practice across the partnership
You will receive extensive CPD opportunities both within school, within the YSA and nationally
We are a friendly, innovative school situated in the centre of the beautiful county of North Yorkshire, bordering the Yorkshire Dales National Park, offering a high quality of life. The school is only a few minutes away from the A1, making it easily accessible from Teesside, York, Leeds and Newcastle.

Over recent years, our community of students, staff, parents and governors have worked tirelessly to transform Bedale High School into a place which all of us are proud to be part of. Now that we are once again a ‘Good’ school (Ofsted Jan 2019) we are committed to ensuring that this positive journey continues.
What really matters to us? We want our students to have hope. We want them to aim high, to have the courage to fail, and the resilience to learn from failure. We want them to appreciate the advantages of growing up in a beautiful rural setting, while making them aware of the opportunities that exist beyond it. We want them to be compassionate individuals who understand the importance of belonging to a community, of respecting and appreciating each other’s differences as they learn about other cultures and traditions. Ultimately, we want them to be able to thrive and lead by example, in whichever corner of the world they finally live.

To make all of this a reality, we are continuing our work to safeguard the future of the school: developing mutually beneficial partnerships, securing high quality training for staff, maximising our opportunities for providing different experiences through local and national business-friends and post-16 providers.
We hope that you come to visit us at school to find out for yourselves what it feels like to be part of our community; a warm welcome awaits you. If you have any specific questions, or would like to arrange a tour, please contact our School Administrator, Dianne Johnson: Tel. 01677 422419, Email. .
