What skills and experience we're looking for

We chose to join the East Midlands Education Trust, a successful and thriving partnership of high achieving schools in January 2022. We have high aspirations for everyone in our community whether pupil or staff.

Following on from the very successful leadership of the existing Headteacher, we are looking for an inspirational and highly organised leader with a proven track record of success, who can provide strong, purposeful and strategic leadership to enable all students and staff to excel.

You must be a qualified teacher who will be a strong and confident advocate for the school in order to build upon the already excellent reputation. Previous experience as a Deputy Headteacher, Head of School or Headteacher, and a proven track record of successful whole school improvement are essential.

The College is situated on the Northwest edge of Leicestershire on the Leicestershire, Derbyshire, and Nottinghamshire border and within 30 minutes’ drive of Nottingham, Derby, Leicester, Loughborough and Burton, being close to the M1 and A50.

In January 2019 we received an Ofsted rating of ‘Good’ and we are very proud of our community and the pupils we serve.

On the application form, please focus on a detailed 'supporting statement' taking into account the person specification and indicating why you would be the best person for us to recruit to this position.

If you would like to arrange an informal discussion about this exciting opportunity with Lisa Walton, Deputy CEO, please emaillwalton@emet.uk.comto arrange a mutually convenient time.

The Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
