The Head of PSHE and Citizenship has a critical role in responding to the emotional health and well-being of our students. The successful candidate will lead the delivery and regular review of an engaging curriculum which is age-appropriate, safe, and serves the needs of our community.

You will have a crucial role in listening to students' opinions via the Teen Health Group and Diversity Group, both of which have received national and local awards.

We are looking for someone who can be creative, dynamic, and is able to communicate their passion for the subject to the whole range of students and staff. You will need to be a talented and capable classroom practitioner, skilled in managing challenging topics such as relationship education, and be adept at creating a comfortable environment for all to thrive. The successful candidate will also be a team player who can communicate an enthusiasm and depth of subject knowledge, using a student-centred approach.
