Job summary

An exciting opportunity for an aspirational, inspiring and forward-thinking leader arises from the announcement of the retirement of the current Headteacher Elizabeth Rymer, in August 2022, following 7 years of highly successful leadership. With the regeneration of the local area, this is also a most attractive and unique opportunity to design and build a brand new school right in the centre of the planned Brent Cross New Town.

Whitefield School is a vibrant and diverse standalone academy which offers a fully rounded education to its truly comprehensive intake in a supportive, creative and dynamic school community. The curriculum offer is broad and balanced, delivered by talented staff with a passion for their subjects and for learning. It is complemented by an ambitious and unusually extensive enrichment programme, offering life-changing opportunities to ensure every student becomes the best that they can be. The dedicated and caring teaching and support staff are led by an experienced senior leadership team and a skilled and committed governing body.

The governors are looking for an individual who can demonstrate:
• Substantial and successful leadership experience as a Head or Deputy Head
• A strong, principled and visionary leadership style
• Communication and interpersonal skills of a high order
• Desire to continue development and raise standards further
• Commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion for students, staff and curriculum
• A student-centred and people-orientated approach
• Firm commitment to supporting staff development, training and well-being
• Experience in research and evidence-informed practice, and a belief in unlocking people’s potential to the fullest extent

Whitefield School is committed to equality, diversity and inclusion. We encourage applications from black and minority ethnic groups which are currently underrepresented.
