What skills and experience we're looking for

Our school community is looking for a headteacher who is decisive, approachable and has exciting new ideas. You will be looking for an opportunity to lead and inspire with purpose, vision, innovation and success. You will have a passion for educating children with SEMH and will use your experience to create a special school that staff, students and the local community are proud of. Your journey to transformative leadership starts with this exciting opportunity to join our Trust.

We are making considerable investment in achieving ‘excellence’ in all that we do and this includes our people. Our young people at Sir Peter Hall School need personal support particularly at points of transition and change. They need a headteacher who will help them realise their ambitions for independence and success, fostering some much needed self confidence in themselves and pride in becoming positive contributors to their own chosen communities. You will be a senior leader with a track record and understanding of Good or Outstanding provision and can demonstrate excellent leadership and managerial skills. These will be complemented by good interpersonal skills along with successful inter-agency working.

Your understanding of the curriculum and assessment for children with social, emotional and mental health needs will be essential. You will deepen our clear vision for the school and what will set you apart will be your commitment to achieving high standards of teaching and learning, attendance and outcomes for students with SEMH.

Sir Peter Hall School educates children and young people at upper key stage 2 to key stage 4 (aged 9 – 16). Each child is likely to have an Education, Health and Care Plan constructed through joined up multi-agency support and co-operation. It is important to belong at work and the work you do is relied upon by our pupils, so even small positive differences which are made, make people very happy.

  • Two week autumn half term break
