Job summary

We wish to appoint an outstanding and inspirational Head of Sixth Form due to the promotion of the current post holder. The Post 16 provision at Stanborough is a beacon of excellence at the school with rising numbers of students joining Year 12 each year. The provision is part of the Welwyn-Hatfield consortium which allows students from local schools to access a high number of courses across the 5 sites of the consortium.

Students in the Sixth Form enjoy working with a team of dedicated Post 16 Tutors and a Deputy Head of Sixth Form. The enrichment curriculum for Post 16 students is also well developed with a number of additional qualifications and opportunities on offer to Post 16 students.

This post would equally suit an appropriately experienced teacher looking to expand their leadership responsibilities and would be an ideal position for someone looking to move into a senior leadership position. An excellent induction and support programme will be available to all applicants.

About Stanborough School

Stanborough School

Stanborough School is an 11-18 co-educational Academy that sits on the southern fringe of Welwyn Garden City. The school currently has 1099 students. Due to parental demand for places at the school, from September 2019 the school expanded to 8 form entry. This has required a substantial amount of new premises work to be completed which includes a new teaching block as well as a drama and music block.

We pride ourselves in being a fully inclusive school that serves our local community and on being a school that does its best for each individual student so they can achieve their potential during their time at Stanborough.

Stanborough is proud of its community involvement. We work closely with the four other local Secondary Schools as part of the Welwyn-Hatfield 16-19 Consortium. We also take a leading role in hosting and developing a number of other key community developments such as the Handside Schools Partnership with a local special school and primary school.

The school boasts excellent facilities including our first-rate IT resources, a legacy of our Specialist Computing Status. With a dedicated Art and Technology block, Sports Hall, Sixth Form Centre and recently constructed new teaching block and Music and Drama block the students enjoy some outstanding facilities. Our excellent resources in all curriculum areas also show our commitment to giving students a wide variety of curricular opportunities including technology, the performing arts and computing.

Our greatest asset at the school is our staff. We want the best educators for our students and through exceptional retention we have a stable staff with very low turn-over. A number of staff who started at the school as NQTs now find themselves in senior positions at the school. We have a strong support team and many staff have remained with the school for several years.

With the appointment of a new Headteacher from September 2018, this is an exciting time to join the school and become part of an ambitious and hard-working team dedicated to moving the school forward. We are looking for support staff and teachers who will embody our four principles of High Expectations; Mutual Respect; Quality Learning and Success for All.
