Further details about the role

Owing to the departure of our highly-regarded, long-serving Headteacher, Corpus Christi Catholic Academy Trust and Governors of St Elizabeth’s are seeking to appoint an ambitious and talented Headteacher who will lead our outstanding Catholic school with drive, compassion and humility. We would like to appoint a leader who will continue to foster an environment of love and forgiveness and encourage all our children to be the best that they can be by living out our school motto of “Let Your Light Shine”.

The school belongs to Corpus Christi Catholic Academy Trust, which provides excellent support to headteachers in terms of HR, Finance, IT and SEND provision. Therefore, we think this is an attractive post for experienced headteachers who want to be able to focus more on delivering excellent education and less on day-to-day operational matters, We also believe this post will appeal to candidates new to headship, who will appreciate always having someone at the end of a phone with whom you can discuss any worries or concerns, in confidence, and always in a supportive manner.
