The Blue Coat School is seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and proactive non teaching Director of Learning to join our experienced team and provide exceptional pastoral care. This is an opportunity to join our outstanding school and the successful candidate will provide leadership and pastoral support to one of our year groups.

We are looking for someone who:

  • Has experience of working with children/young people to improve outcomes.

  • Has the ability to learn quickly, assimilate ideas, generate understanding, be challenged, and be flexible.

If you have a passion for ensuring the best possible provision for our young people and would find fulfilment in supporting with their enjoyment, attendance and progress at school, then we would love to hear from you.

We are very proud of our school, which attracts students from across Greater Manchester and beyond. It first opened in 1834. Our founder, Thomas Henshaw, was a committed Anglican who left a bequest to fund a school which would provide education for the orphaned boys of the parish.

From these humble beginnings, the Blue Coat School has become one of the biggest and most successful schools in the country. The school has a national reputation for high quality teaching and learning, pastoral care, consistently excellent examination results and outstanding progress. Our most recent OFSTED inspection in 2011/2 judged the school to be outstanding in every category. As a result, Blue Coat has been designated a National Teaching School which means that we work with schools nationally and locally to develop the very best educational provision. Blue Coat is grounded in tradition and history, and is evolving and forward looking. Our historic campus has been restored and developed extensively; our students enjoy picnic lunches in front of a Grade II listed building but their learning takes place in superb 21st century classrooms, laboratories and studios.

Blue Coat is dedicated to serving young people, to enable them to become everything they can be and everything that they are meant to be. We are a Church of England school that welcomes members of other Christian denominations, and of other faiths.

Our Anglican beliefs, values and worship are at the core of our life together in school.
