  • To provide regular progress updates to the Leadership Team including the governors.

What the school offers its staff

Irrespective of our size we are still able to offer a wide range of courses, activities and experiences for individual students, and as a result, we are able to respond to the pace and direction of individual development. We recognise that our large and active community requires a high degree of organisation to enable us to achieve our aims. Our lastest OFSTED report rated us as GOOD in all areas.

  • To take a lead role in the monitoring and evaluation of standards across each subject area and to be a leading professional actively promoting effective teaching and learning practices across the department.
  • To promote excellent standards of behaviour across the department and across the school.
  • The post will require you to work in partnership with all staff to ensure the continuous improvement of the school
