What skills and experience we're looking for

Queens Manor is a school just beginning its United Learning journey. They formally joined the group in November 2022 after a year long transition period. The school brings with into the group its historic strength and a whole lot of potential. They have embraced the change that working autonomously but within a large multi academy trust brings and are now looking for a leader to continue this rapid improvement. In addition, they are a highly inclusive school with an onsite Special Needs provision, The Pavilion, that caters for some of the most vulnerable pupils from their local community. The school strives to provide an exceptional education for the local children. This post will provide an exciting opportunity for a leader who wants to make a real difference to the local community.

As Principal you will have the opportunity to lead the school on its continued journey of improvement, ensuring they provide children with an inspirational learning environment and the very best opportunities right through their education. To support you to drive improvements you will have access to the support and resources of United Learning, including educational expertise, specialist finance, HR and technology business partners.

We are looking for a Headteacher, or an outstanding, experienced Deputy, who believes that extraordinary academic success is possible and can draw together a team that delivers it. As a confident leader you will have the ability to motivate others and command respect in staff and pupils alike. The school needs a leader with a clear vision, an understanding of the local community and the focus to drive forward improvement at the school.

What the school offers its staff

United Learning is deeply committed to the progress, success and safeguarding of all children and young people. We believe in serving local communities through creating excellent schools which provide outstanding education and support all the children of the area. Our Headteachers are central not only to the leadership of their school but also to the collective leadership of the Group. As a Group, we aim to offer more by working together than any single school could on its own: we aim to support and develop leaders, provide excellent professional development for all staff and offer broader experiences for children and young people.

United Learning values diversity and inclusion and is committed to creating and sustaining a more ethnically diverse workforce. In this regard we would not only welcome applications from professionals of minority ethnic origin, but from majority ethnic professionals who share our commitment.

If you are looking for an exciting and highly rewarding role within a Group that offers excellent professional development, and if you have a strong commitment to improving the lives of all young people, we encourage you to visit us.
