What skills and experience we're looking for

The governing body are seeking to appoint an outstanding senior leader to the post of headteacher at our school. The role is suitable for an experienced headteacher relishing a new challenge or an aspiring leader working towards their first headship.

This post is for a strategic leader with a caring disposition and a commitment to developing and inspiring our school family and community. This position offers excellent prospects for a forward thinking leader to drive Triangle forward to build on the school’s existing strengths.

The successful candidate must:

  • demonstrate successful leadership and proven management experience

The new headteacher will have every opportunity to continue to further develop the school with the support of an experienced Governing Body. Our vision statement is deeply rooted in Christian theology and encapsulates who we are: a loving and caring school community where all are happy, valued and respected.

It also captures what we want for our pupils – to be courageous in their academic and life choices; to be strong and resilient learners who don’t give up when things are challenging.
