Job summary

This is an exciting opportunity to cover our current Headteacher whilst she is on Maternity Leave. We are looking for a confident and experienced school leader who can continue to inspire our children and engage positively with members of our school community. We are looking for someone with excellent communication skills and a strong motivation to ensure the school maintains its good status.

St Matthias is a good one-and-a-half form entry primary school, with a nursery, in the London borough of Hackney. Our children come from truly diverse backgrounds and speak many different languages.
