Headteacher job summary

Would you like to lead a school where every child is nurtured and supported to achieve in a creative way? Are you dynamic and looking to develop your career in a school that supports professional development?

We believe Tower Hill is that school.

We are a single form entry primary school in the thriving market town of Witney.

Our motto is “Grow Together” and we have strong links in our community and a real family feel. Many ex pupils return to us as parents of the next generation with fond memories of their time with us.

This is a unique opportunity for an ambitious, creative, determined leader to champion the needs of our school community. We do not underestimate the challenge of improving pupil outcomes against a backdrop of significant disadvantage. Our pupils deserve the very best in school leadership and we have reflected our commitment in the higher than usual salary for a school of this size.


We are a values-based school and are proud of the way that this informs so much of what happens in school, including supporting local charities and having regular community days to improve the school environment.

The staff team are committed, cohesive and work hard to deliver the very best outcomes for our pupils

Will you lead us in the next stage of our development, consolidating what has been achieved and taking us forward?

Education has the power to change lives, communities and society for the better. At RLT we believe that we can achieve more for our pupils, trainees, staff and communities by working together rather than alone. Schools in RLT are united by a common belief in the benefits of working together, and by our commitment to shared principles.


OUR VISION is for our schools and SCITT to improve rapidly, continuously and sustainably: to be better faster together.

OUR ‘WHY?’ is that children and young people ‘only get one go’ in school and therefore as part of RLT we aim to ensure the best possible ‘go’ for our pupils.

OUR ‘HOW?’ is through the highest support and challenge for our schools and each other, underpinned by our principles.


Our employees benefit from a wide variety of support including extensive continuing professional learning and development opportunities, wellbeing and staff networks and access to Defined Benefit Pension Schemes (TPS and LGPS) for all staff. For more information on what it is like to work for the Trust, and the benefits you could access, please see our “Working in RLT” guide.

This role includes regulated activity relevant to children.

The school reserves the right to consider and interview candidates ahead of the closing date if appropriate. An offer may be made to an exceptional candidate in this instance.
