Wombourne High School are recruiting for a Deputy Headteacher to join the Senior Leadership Team and lead on the Quality of Education.

We are a Multi Academy Trust comprising of six secondary schools and one primary school with over 750 employees and over 5,500 students, based in Dudley, West Midlands.

At Wombourne High School we are driven by our values of hard work, positivity and kindness, and we are looking for a dynamic, determined and forward-thinking Deputy Headteacher who can model these values and play a pivotal role in the future development of our school.

This is a key position within the school and will suit a professional who has a deep knowledge of curriculum development, coupled with a clear vision and a proven track record of raising standards. The successful candidate will be an excellent practitioner, able to lead by example, and will possess a significant background of strong leadership within a school at senior level. The successful candidate will be deeply ambitious for students and staff, with the ability to provide strategic direction which improves student outcomes.

Within the Trust each school retains its own separate identity, but all members are totally committed to working together to ensure that each of our students receive the best possible education. An independent style of education where students are consistently challenged to be the best that they can be.

Wombourne High School has an excellent reputation for staff development and the Trust dimension gives real opportunities for teachers to share ideas and learn. We welcome applications from well-organised and inspirational teachers.

Closing date: 10th October 2023 12noon

We do reserve the right to close this advertisement early if we receive a high volume of suitable applications.

What the school offers its staff

We are an ambitious and supportive school, committed to providing all our students with the best possible education. We are proud of our team of dedicated staff who provide an inspiring, structured and supportive learning environment, in which every student is challenged to realise their full potential and encouraged to be ambitious for their futures. We believe that everyone has potential: our commitment is to help each young person to make the most of their abilities and to achieve their goals.
