Job summary

*** Please note, this vacancy is for a Brand New school based in Widnes (Halton LA). It is not based at the Trust Head Office  ***

This vacancy at The Raise Academy is an outstanding opportunity.  If successful you will play a key role in setting up a brand new free school to provide successful education to students who need it most.

We want to build on our reputation of being extremely versatile, developing personalised programmes of study so all achieve.  With the doors opening for the first time in September 2022. As a free school there is a rare opportunity that will give you the chance to help develop an education system that truly focuses on the individual.

The Raise Academy will become a beacon of outstanding practice in SEN delivery specifically focused around supporting students with Social and Emotional difficulties and this role will provide an exceptional prospect to help craft the foundations of successful lifelong education. 

The school will begin with a cohort of 35 expanding to 50 in year 2 with potential further expansion to 64. We are looking for someone who will enjoy the challenge of setting up a school, along with the tremendous opportunity to work with an incredibly supportive central team and trust board.

The newly appointed Headteacher will bring fresh ideas and stimulus to our already successful plans and help develop and form a staff team, maintaining effective systems and procedures.

You, as someone who is a strategic thinker, ambitious and who can use initiative and positivity combined with excellent educational strategies, can make a remarkable impact for every student that accesses The Raise Academy.

If you feel that The Raise Academy may be the right place for you, I hope you will consider applying for the post. 

We will be more than happy to have an informal conversation or a face to face meeting to discuss any further questions. To arrange please contact the Trust on info@theyestrust.org and we look forward to hearing from you.
