What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking for an energetic and dynamic leader to join Uphill Village Academy as our new Vice Principal. Colleagues at Uphill Village 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 inclusion; children are well supported and thrive in this learning environment. Together with the wider leadership team, 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 Uphill 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.
