What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking for an energetic and dynamic leader to join Hanham Woods Academy as our new Vice Principal. Colleagues at Hanham Woods Academy are professional, enthusiastic and committed and work hard to support all children to achieve both personally and academically. There is a strong ethos and culture around high expectations and inclusion; children are well supported and thrive in this learning environment. Together with the Principal, the Vice Principal will work to ensure the smooth and effective running of the school.

CLF has a successful track record of performance delivery across all of its academies; as Vice Principal, you will be able to seize the chance to make a real difference to the lives of the pupils at Hanham Woods and have the drive and passion to accelerate improvement. You will have a track record of success and bring to the Academy a level of focus, precision and rigour that will have a substantial and sustained impact on the Academy into the future. Improvement will be based on an unswerving focus on teaching and learning and a strong commitment to collaboration within and beyond the Cabot Learning Federation. Working within the Trust, you will benefit from excellent peer support from colleagues in similar roles and have great opportunities for continuing professional development. You can expect positive challenge, a supportive environment to succeed within and, in the longer term, further career opportunities across the Federation. Each school has its own unique identity within a wider family of schools, each a fulfilling place to work and learn and each occupying important space in the educational landscape of their cluster and within the Cabot Learning Federation.

Hanham Woods Academy is part of the Cabot Learning Federation and is one of the most improved Academies in the South West, providing an excellent education to over 800 students. The Academy has a growing reputation both locally and regionally. Whilst we appreciate the unique setting in which the Academy is placed, we work hard to challenge students from a variety of backgrounds to be the best they can be in all areas of life. Our mission here is simple: we want to give people the best chance of success. This underpinned by our ethos of Dream Big, Work Hard, Be Kind. We want students to 'climb the mountain' in order to achieve success both academically and by developing a confident, resilient and hard working character. The Academy was judged ‘Good’ by Ofsted in November 2019, noting that ‘Pupils are proud of their school’ and ‘They feel safe’.  The Academy continues its improvement journey, being over-subscribed in a number of Year Groups.  Our students are excited to learn, are increasingly successful in reaching their potential and are real ambassadors for our community. Staff are hard working and supportive, and leaders consider carefully the wellbeing of colleagues. If you want to work in an environment that is high challenge, low threat, that takes great pride in developing people and works together to give students the best chance of success, then this is the academy for you.
