The Abbey School invites applications for the post of Director of Wider Personal Development to lead on the school’s wider personal development delivery and will have responsibility for PSHE, SMSC and Student Voice. We are looking to appoint a well-organised creative individual who is committed to ensuring that pupils receive a programme that gives them the knowledge they need to make decisions, strengthens them personally and contributes to building their character.

An ability to teach English, Maths or Geography would be desirable but not essential. Due to the nature of the role, it will have a reduced teaching timetable.

This is an excellent opportunity for someone to lead and build a programme which is forward-thinking and focused on doing the very best for each and every student.
