What skills and experience we're looking for

We require an outstanding Leader to join the Senior Leadership Team from the 1st September 2024.

As Deputy Headteacher you will provide inspirational leadership to staff and be a role model to students. The role will have specific responsibilities for Behaviour, School Culture and Personal Development.

We are looking for someone who will share our vision of inspiring every student to become the best version of themselves. As a Church Academy the successful candidate will be someone who can embrace and model our Church ethos to lead the whole academy on excellent standards of behaviour, systems and learning culture.

The main purpose of the role will be to strengthen ‘Behaviour, School Culture and Personal Development’, all of which we judge to be at least good within our academy.

Wyvern St Edmund's (WSE) is situated on the eastern outskirts of Salisbury with beautiful views over the Laverstock Downs to the east and Salisbury Cathedral to the southwest. WSE is a founding member of Magna Learning Partnership.

In September 2022 we legally opened as Wyvern St Edmund's Academy, enabling us to take full advantage of the benefits associated with inclusive coeducational learning and social development. Wyvern College and St Edmund's Girls' School were formally two separate schools, just a few yards apart. Over the past 15 years the schools have worked closely together, sharing expertise and staffing resources.

Facilities and teachers are now fully and legally merged to create a large, mixed, setting of approximately 1350 students. We currently have a 'Good' OFSTED rating. Our collective vision of helping each student to develop into the best version of themselves is at the heart of everything we do and motivates us to provide impactful teaching, comprehensive pastoral care and extensive extra-curricular provision. Moreover, our vision is rooted in Christian beliefs and values whereby we expect our students to use their developing gifts, talents and character to serve others in the local community and beyond (1 Peter 4:10).

We have high expectations of student attainment and similarly we expect much from our staff. We are aiming for outstanding provision in all areas and this appointment is a key factor in ensuring that we achieve that ambition.

Our students are delightful; they embrace learning opportunities and respond well to challenge. They appreciate the very positive working relationships they have with their teachers and other staff who support them. In turn, our staff go the extra mile to help students achieve beyond expectations. Our reputation in the local community is soundly based upon the value we add to our students from the point at which they join us until their departure for sixth forms and colleges in the local area.

We have a close and positive relationship with Salisbury Sixth From College (S6C) which is a short drive away from WSE. Our partnership with the college means that there are opportunities to work collaboratively with KS5 students and teachers.
