Headteacher - Stowmarket High School job summary

Thank you for your interest in the role of Headteacher at Stowmarket High School. We believe that this is a remarkable opportunity to lead a school with many strengths and enormous potential for further success.

This is a chance to be a key leader not just of a school but as part of a trust determined to make a real difference to young people in this part of the world.

Stowmarket High is a school brimming with potential. Our students respond brilliantly to challenge and want to do well. Our staff respond to clear leadership and a transparent approach to what is expected of them on the journey of school improvement. Our community is passionate about the prospects of its young people and restless to see its high school become an excellent school and a source of pride.

We are interested in speaking with candidates who will be dedicated to the young people in our school. Your ambition for the school and the ability to provide clear leadership that secures rapid improvement is more important than your particular career path to this point. You will though, be a senior leader in schools with real credibility and a track record of success.

Outcomes are essential to life chances and the options available to our young people and we want to meet people at interview who can strengthen the academic ethos of the school and excellence in teaching. There are also important improvements to be made in the culture of the school, including behaviours in the broadest sense, integrated approaches to pastoral support, and working closely with parents and carers, particularly to support students with SEND. To achieve this, we want to find a headteacher who can lead the school with moral conviction, clear plans and messages and real presence in school and within the community.

The scope to make an impact in this role is fabulous and we hope that you will consider applying. More information regarding this exciting opportunity to take Stowmarket High School into its next phase is included within the applicant pack attached to this advert.

Our school is part of Kingfisher Schools Trust. The Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. An enhanced DBS check will be part of the pre-employment screening process for this role. An application form must be completed in full; CVs alone cannot be accepted.
