Esteem South Academy: Raising the B.A.R.

Esteem South Academy is more than just a school; it's an extraordinary journey of learning and growth. We are a vibrant Alternative Provision Academy within the Esteem Multi Academy Trust, situated in the heart of South Derbyshire.

We don't just deliver education; we create rich and engaging experiences that empower our students to thrive. Right now, we're searching for a visionary Head of School to ignite the potential within our remarkable students and dedicated staff across Key Stages 1, 2, 3 and 4.

This is your chance to make a lasting impact on the lives of our learners, fostering a supportive and successful environment.

As our leader, you'll play a pivotal role in crafting an educational journey that surpasses the ordinary. You'll have the opportunity to shape our curriculum, integrating real-world experiences that will inspire students to reach their full potential. Our brilliant students have an insatiable curiosity, matched only by their boundless energy and independent spirit. They deserve an exceptional leader who can navigate their challenges, nurture their talents, and guide them on their journey to academic greatness.

Under the guidance of the Esteem MAT's Executive Headteacher, you'll find a collaborative and supportive environment. While experience within the AP or Special Educational Needs sector is a plus, it's not essential – we're committed to developing expertise within our team. This position is not suitable for Early Career Teachers (ECTs).

Join us on this exciting adventure, and you'll benefit from a competitive package including the Teachers' Pension Scheme, access to the Westfield Health wellbeing service, and a comprehensive program of professional development.
