Christ’s College is a most attractively sized (NOR c.700) 4–16, formerly independent school now serving a very diverse and challenging community in which our family of staff and students are unusually well known to each other. Christ’s has extraordinary potential and was newly sponsored in May 2019 by Emmanuel Schools Foundation (ESF), a unique multi-academy trust dedicated to offering excellent education in Christian ethos schools of character for the whole community. With resources and assistance from successful neighbouring schools within ESF, we are on a journey of rapid improvement to establish Christ’s as an exceptional non-denominational Christian ethos school.
We seek an experienced leader to take the helm and deliver a profound and lasting impact. You will bring a rare combination of humility, vision and clear resolve as a catalyst for change and rapid improvement. As well as being committed to our Christian ethos, you will lead decisively and effectively, bringing wisdom and understanding – and harnessing these to underpin a culture and team equipped for continued and sustained improvement.
Christ’s College, like all schools in deprived areas, has its challenges. If you have the determination, imagination and talent to lead rapid improvement whilst nurturing our distinctive and cherished community, we want to hear from you.
There is an occupational requirement for the post-holder to be a committed and practising Christian. You will have an inclusive mind-set and will also be a high-achieving graduate and qualified teacher with substantial leadership experience that includes a track record of whole-school improvement. This will have given you deep understanding of effective and transferrable strategies in areas such as curriculum development, pedagogy, assessment and pastoral leadership, along with a proven ability to lead staff and their development, and real passion for improving lives and outcomes.
We’re a growing Trust, and – whether you already have a strong track record as a headteacher or are currently a senior leader seeking your first headship – you will be ready to take your next step and will have the skills and ability to bring your vision to life.
