You will be joining a dedicated and committed teaching team, who put the education of our students first. Our school motto is “Inspiring learning for life” which was agreed by all teachers, students and parents to reflect the importance of every single child and an all-rounded education which goes beyond the classroom.

Your personal development is also important to us, so we offer training opportunities such as; CPD through Teaching School Alliance and a peer review process.

This is an exciting opportunity to lead our school through the next stages of development and would suit either an experienced Headteacher or a Deputy looking for a first headship.
