Job summary

We are seeking a serving Headteacher or experienced Deputy, with vision and passion to lead our outstanding school community into the next phase of its development.

This rare opportunity arises due to the retirement of our current inspirational and dedicated Headteacher, Peter Woodman.

The Weald’s commitment to providing high quality education for all its students, irrespective of their ability, means it enjoys an excellent reputation resulting in oversubscription. Equally, the exceptional team of specialist teaching and support staff are well respected for how they work alongside students in this vibrant community. We, therefore, want to appoint a person who shares this energy and ambition and is determined to ensure students continue to be at the heart of all we do and who, through strong creative leadership, motivates others to champion further school improvement.

The Weald is located on a well resourced and attractive site in the bustling village of Billingshurst, West Sussex. With excellent links to Brighton and London and in easy reach of Horsham and Guildford, the area offers families a wonderful combination of country, coastal and cultural experiences.

We welcome applications from strategic and collaborative leaders with proven success securing outstanding outcomes in a truly comprehensive community.
