What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking for a resilient, kind, caring and inspirational Headteacher for this wonderful school, which is highly ambitious for its pupils, ensuring they ‘make remarkable change happen’. The overarching vision for the school is to provide individualised support for all students so they achieve excellent outcomes which prepare them for the next phase of their life.

The Bridge School educates children from Reception to year 11 with plans to open an assessment nursery and sixth form, in a state-of-the-art single storey building.

Each child has an Education, Health and Care Plan and we ensure that these are delivered fully through joined up multi-agency support and co-operation.

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 special educational needs will be essential.

You will be required to develop a clear vision for the school and what will set you apart will be your commitment to achieving high standards of teaching and learning and your passion for improving outcomes for students with SEND.
