What skills and experience we're looking for

Stourport High School is built on three values that provide the nurturing conditions for our students to thrive in. Kindness is both celebrated and nurtured amongst our pupils and staff; we show each other respect and support determination through strong pastoral and academic systems.

The post of Vice Principal is one of two in the structure, alongside the Vice Principal School Improvement and Raising Standards, reporting to the Principal. This team is responsible for the effective strategic leadership and operation of the school according to its mission and values; candidates with strong pastoral leadership experience would complement the existing team, but is not essential as training and development opportunities can be provided.
