What skills and experience we're looking for

Your vision for high-quality education will resonate with that of the whole school: to provide a character-first education that equips students to be world-changers, using their gifts and opportunities to serve others. Your leadership style will be characterised by gentleness and humility; you will lead by example, making decisions on the basis of what is best for students. Furthermore, you will recognise the unique role that all teachers play in the life of a school and will have a commitment to developing the skills and acumen of educators in all subject areas. Your aim should be to empower teachers, so they are able to develop students who challenge what is wrong and who are determined to do what is right.

We would hope to appoint someone with a thorough knowledge of a range of teaching and learning approaches and a deep understanding of the motivation necessary to be a successful teacher.

Your motivation as a lead practitioner will be to ensure both the positive care and rigorous development of teachers so that students have improved academic outcomes and teachers develop the highest quality of teaching and learning.
