Head of Year
TLR 2b £4,500
Full time, permanent, required September 2022

We wish to appoint an outstanding leader with a proven track record of school improvement. You will be able to give strategic direction to all aspects of the leadership and management of the year group and create a positive and challenging environment that encourages high expectations. You will lead a well-established team of year group tutors and work closely with the Student Support Managers and Assistant Headteacher – Behaviour and Attitudes lead.

This is a crucial role within the school, which will aim to bridge the academic / pastoral divide. As well as the many pastoral aspects to the role, the head of year will also have a key strategic role in leading the year group and will expect tutors and the Key Stage Support Manager to have the main input in day to day operational links with home/parents. The head of year will also liaise with subject leaders and teams, and with parents on the best way to develop and support students’ learning.

We are a heavily oversubscribed 11-18 rural school that was described by OFSTED (June 2017) as a good school where students achieve well and leave the school with results that are above the national average - all judgements were good.
We strongly believe in distributed leadership and are committed to the individual professional development of all staff.
Students are very well behaved and respond positively to our hard-working and highly committed staff.
This is an opportunity to join our pastoral department where our standards are continually improving.
If you have any questions, please contact the headteacher’s PA, Mrs S J Davies, on the email address below.
