Job summary

Grace Academy Coventry is a thriving community school looking to appoint a new principal with high expectations to lead the academy into the next stage of its development. Our ambition is to become an outstanding first choice local academy, which encourages a love of learning that will last a lifetime.

Established in 2008, we are an aspirational and inclusive 11 – 18 academy with tremendous potential. Now part of the Tove Learning Trust, we work with other trust schools and share experiences across all aspects of student life so that they achieve the very best they can.

Currently the number of students on roll is 721 but parental engagement is much improved and pupil numbers are predicted to grow to meet the capacity of 1000. Although outcomes are not yet high, the school is making positive steps forward as it grows in confidence and improved results were achieved in 2019. The school has successfully moved from an Ofsted rating of serious weaknesses in February 2018 to requires improvement in December 2019, with leadership identified as a key strength. A recent monitoring inspection in February 2021 confirmed the rapid improvements.

A dynamic and creative individual, you will have a track record of success as a school/academy leader. You may be an experienced headteacher looking for a new challenge or alternatively a deputy headteacher/vice principal ready for the next step. Either way your exceptional people skills and the ability to establish relationships with diverse communities of students and families will have been key to your progress to date.

You will benefit from an enthusiastic, energetic and committed leadership team and a supportive staff. As part of the Tove Learning Trust, you will also have support from the trust's family of schools, a network of specialist school improvement directors, and the guidance of an exceptional CEO with a deep understanding of academy leadership. Tove Learning Trust is part of the SWAN teaching school alliance providing access to CPD and further qualifications.
