What skills and experience we're looking for

We wish to appoint a Principal for September 2023, who will lead the Academy into the future, whilst building on the excellent work of the past few years.

The pupils, parents, staff and trustees at St Edward’s are looking for a Principal who understands the needs of young people and relates well to them, advocates innovative teaching and learning approaches and is a collaborative and approachable colleague. We wish to appoint a person who understands current trends in education but is not solely driven by them and who will promote with enthusiasm the Christian vision that underpins all we do. We are looking for a Principal who will work creatively and energetically, who has the tenacity to maintain a positive climate of accountability and ensure that everyone in our professional community strives for excellence. This is an exciting opportunity for the successful appointee to lead our academy and shape its future, whilst using their existing skills and experience.

What the school offers its staff

We strive to be a community in which everyone - pupils, parents, staff and trustees - are able to give of their best and feel valued and included. Our vision is that all our pupils are inspired to “learn for life” and become 10:10 people. So, we offer them a rich, balanced and well-resourced curriculum that enables them to grow as rounded human beings. We are a middle school (deemed secondary) which impacts our curriculum design to enhance pupil experience. The Academy has a strong Christian ethos which both cherishes the individual and places significant emphasis on our Vision.
