What skills and experience we're looking for

Robin Hood Academy is a vibrant and innovative primary school that maintained its ‘Good’ OFSTED judgement with a strong report in September 2022. Robin Hood Academy has a rich history of constantly seeking to innovate and improve. We are now seeking to appoint our next leader with the drive and determination to build upon the excellent work of our current HT and to plot the school on its future development path. It is the desire to constantly improve, refine our practices and further develop the learning experiences for our children that lie at the heart of the culture and ethos of the school. The Trust wishes to recruit a Headteacher with a passion and drive to create the next exciting chapter in the history of the school and help it on its journey towards providing a truly outstanding learning experience for all of our pupils.

The successful candidate will:

  • Have a proven track record in school leadership and making a difference.
  • Ideally already have been a Headteacher and be able to demonstrate impact in the role.
  • Have a passion for pedagogy and be as focused on the foundations of learning as on innovation.
  • Be an excellent communicator and have outstanding emotional intelligence.
  • Have strong team ethic and moral purpose.
  • Have a strong vision for education and high aspirations for pupils and staff.
  • Believe in and demonstrate the value of visible leadership throughout the school and community.
  • Be willing to contribute their skillset to the wider Multi Academy Trust and work with our team of Headteachers to improve outcomes for all Trust pupils.
  • Have a desire to impact on the wider education system in order to make a true difference.

What the school offers its staff

Robin Hood Academy is part of Robin Hood Multi Academy Trust which also consists of Birches Green Infant School, Birches Green Junior School, Cedars Academy, Ulverley School and Yenton Primary School. The Trust is built on the principles of working collaboratively across each school to create unique learning experiences for children that they wouldn’t get in any other organisation. The Trust believes that each school’s vision and ethos is unique to their own setting and community. With this in mind, space is provided for leaders to lead their schools whilst also offering the support of a team of highly skilled professionals from the MAT to enable the sharing of best practice. We believe that, with the collaborative leadership across our schools, we can create something truly special. To gain an understanding of the vision for the Trust please visit www.robinhoodMAT.co.uk and watch our vision.
