Job summary

New era. New Principal. New possibilities.

It’s a new era for Granville Academy. With a £5 million new build programme planned, including a new sports hall and science and technology facilities, we’re taking our campus to the next level – and you will do the same for our students. Our motto is work hard, be kind, choose wisely and you’ll bring this ethos to life in everything you do and in every interaction with our inspiring and enthusiastic children.

Like us, you’ll be passionate about social mobility and keen to release our pupils’ potential. At the heart of The de Ferrers Trust, we’re transforming the way we engage our staff and students alike – and we’ll give you all the autonomy you need to introduce a wealth of fresh ideas. Supported by your fellow Principals across the Trust, you’ll drive continuous improvement every day and encourage our pupils to recognise that hard work is the key to success. Your effective leadership will bring people together and ultimately make Granville a high-performing member of our Trust.

It’s an exciting challenge, for which we require an exceptional professional. Already a senior leader in a secondary school, you’ll be able to demonstrate an impressive record of success and a high level of tenacity and initiative. Your ability to facilitate highly-effective teaching and learning and a pastoral environment in which every child thrives will create an Academy to be proud of – and could potentially create unrivalled opportunities for you across our small network of schools.

If like us, you believe that anything is possible, we need to talk. To discover what we can achieve together, visit http://www.deferrerstrust.com/page/?title=Current+Vacancies&pid=7
