Head of School Abbot Alphege Academy, Somerset, Shropshire

Job description

Head of School
(4.5 days per week)
School Group 1
Salary: Leadership Point L4 – L8
Start Date: 20 April 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter

We are seeking to appoint a Head of School to work at Abbot Alphege Academy within the Bath and Mendip Partnership Trust.

Our school is in its third year of operation with 64 pupils on roll and our numbers have now grown sufficiently to require a permanent senior leader post to manage the day to day running of the school. The role will also have a part time teaching commitment to teach the mixed age upper key stage two class. The role is expected to become a full time position once the pupil numbers have increased further.

We are looking for an experienced teacher who ideally has wide or significant experience of senior leadership in a primary school.

The successful applicant will be expected to play a significant role in the development and growth of the primary school to reach its maximum capacity of 210 pupils over the next 4-5 years, as the new housing development reaches its final phase of building.

The post holder will work closely with the senior leadership team of Weston All Saints Primary, who currently share the leadership and running of the school. It is envisaged that this support will continue during the expansion of the school.

The school is part of the Bath and Mendip Partnership Trust and shares the Local Governor Board with WASPS, the lead partner school.

Visits to the school can be arranged by emailing the school office: office@abbot-alphege.org.uk to book an appointment.

Please email all applications forms to applications@thebathandmendippartnershiptrust.com. Please note we are unable to accept CVs.
