• Recognises the progress and achievements that the school has already made but is not afraid of being innovative and creative in developing a clear vision.
• Has a strong commitment to the principles of inclusion, equality of opportunity & diversity.
• Demonstrates care for the spiritual, moral, social & cultural development & wellbeing of pupils.
• Is approachable and engaging.

Our school can offer you:

• A warm welcome from happy, polite, well behaved pupils.
• A loyal and hardworking team of staff.
• A committed, proactive and supportive Governing Body.
• A supportive local family of schools and strong links with Thomas Estley Learning Alliance.
