What skills and experience we're looking for

At STAR, our mission is ‘to develop outstanding education in all our schools, which will enable every young person to flourish and realise their full potential’.

Our thriving and collegiate Trust is looking to recruit a talented and ambitious Head of School Improvement to lead us to further fulfil our mission statement.

This exciting new opportunity represents part of our evolution. The successful post holder will move into a ‘space’ previously led by the CEO, working initially with highly experienced contracted School Improvement Consultants, and established and evolving systems and processes, but with the opportunity to move all aspects of this work forwards strategically, develop both an internal team model, as well as further out-sourcing; all to further our aims for young people and of course staff.

We are looking for an individual who can:

  • Work collaboratively with the CEO and other partners to build upon the existing foundation of quality education and drive sustained improvement across our schools, both at strategic level as well as ensuring consistency and impact at school level
  • Establish and develop high-performing teams to impact on all aspects of school improvement
  • Facilitate school-based improvement, ensuring full statutory compliance and best practice to build on our current strengths and ensure that every learner can be happy, successful and thrive
  • Demonstrate a track record of outstanding teaching and learning, utilising current educational research to apply best practice
  • Build positive and collegiate relationships with our staffing and leadership teams to nurture and progress talent, supporting and challenging when appropriate to enable success
  • Developing Trust-wide strategies, systems and processes with strategic oversight, but be able to oversee, interact and problem-solve with operational detail
  • Demonstrate strategic vision alongside practical impact to ensure our provision evolves and is fit for purpose to cater to students regardless of need or background


What the school offers its staff

In turn, we can offer you:

  • Opportunities to develop and grow professionally through our work with existing and future partners
  • Opportunities to shape our organisation and strategy
  • A highly supportive environment within a dedicated and effective team of colleagues
  • A truly welcoming and rewarding place to work
  • An agile working policy – your base will be largely at our central Trust office but also actively visiting our schools, for which mileage will be recompensed

Plus, a brand-new benefits and wellbeing package which includes…

Employee Benefits portal with access to arange of discounts to help save money across high-street and online retailers:

  • Cycle to Work Scheme
  • Bike Shop
  • Home and Electronics Scheme
  • Health & Wellbeing

Further details about the role

If you are an outstanding leader, committed to improving the life chances of children, with a portfolio of experience and impact in school improvement on a school and wider footprint, then this exciting opportunity is for you.
