What skills and experience we're looking for

Our new Headteacher will have engaged in current educational discourse, including leadership and management, curriculum and pedagogy, and will be able to speak with clarity about what makes excellent practice in these areas.

With a strong emphasis on CPD, we continue to develop our subject communities and phase-based forums so that all schools have access to centrally-run training and to effective partnerships.

You will be part of a Trust that provides leadership and support to schools through our core leadership and central services teams, which includes an experienced and supportive CEO, an Education Team, Inclusion & Safeguarding Team, Finance, HR, Operations, Governance, Building and Property Services. The successful candidate will benefit from this significant support, coupled with a comprehensive induction and CPD programme. The Trust has an Employee Assistance Programme, offering counselling and well-being support, and a rewards scheme including retail discounts, Cycle to Work scheme and gym membership.

Commitment to safeguarding

The Trust and school are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children; therefore, all shortlisted applicants must be prepared to undergo a number of checks to confirm their suitability to work with children and young people, in accordance with the DfEs "Keeping Children Safe in Education".
