Further details about the role

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for an aspiring Leader to develop their career in a brand-new school that is fully supported by the infrastructure of a highly successful Trust.

Prince Albert High is free school which opened in September 2021 to a cohort of 180 students. Our aspirations for our cohort are no different to the aspirations that we have for our own children. Our aim is to develop a generation of young people who will not only transform their own life chances but make the world a better place too.

Prince Albert High is unique because it is one of the very few secondary schools where the incoming year 7 students and their families are well-known by our school. This is because the vast majority of our students come from multi-academy trust’s primaries. As the school enters its third year, you will have the opportunity to shape the school community and your career at Prince Albert High as the school grows.

At Prince Albert High, key stage 3 follows a middle school model, with pupils in year 7 and year 8 being taught predominantly by the same class teacher. This has created a highly aspirational culture, rooted in outstanding relationship with students and their families, trust and warmth. This middle school model will be supported by an exceptional pastoral team with extensive knowledge of the students and their families.

Commitment to safeguarding

Our organisation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. We expect all staff, volunteers and trustees to share this commitment.

Our recruitment process follows the keeping children safe in education guidance.
