The successful candidate will be an integral part of the school senior leadership team, which will be comprised of 3 Deputy Headteachers, 3 Assistant Headteachers and the Financial Director. As a stand-alone academy with a revenue budget of approximately £8m, and around 1,500 pupils, we continue to be in a healthy financial position with opportunities to invest to ensure the best possible outcomes for the students. Over a number of years we have been successful in bidding for capital funds and these have allowed us to expand and improve our facilities for the benefit of all our pupils. We are especially proud of our purpose built 6th Form Centre named after our former Head Girl and the Batley and Spen MP Jo Cox, a £1.5 million project.
The school is heavily oversubscribed at both admission points of Year 7 and Year 12, with over 1000 students sitting the entrance examination, competing for 210 places and over 600 post 16 students competing for 250 places in year 12. Sixth form places are filled by students from our Year 11 with remaining places filled by high ability external students.
The reputation of the sixth form is very high, and the progress students achieve year on year compares very favourably with local competitors, making it a most popular offer in the area. We deliver an academic diet of purely A level courses, and this has proven to be very successful. Sixth formers integrate well into the school despite having a separate sixth form social space
Systems are in place in the sixth form. However, there is now opportunity for the new appointee to design their own systems and structures.
GCSE outcomes are consistently particularly strong and provide an excellent foundation for further study. A level outcomes are in line with national expectation and are a particular focus for further improvement.
In staff surveys, staff report they are overwhelmingly proud to work at the school and enjoy their job. CPD is a key focus of the school, with regular in house training and opportunities for all staff to follow national training frameworks.
