They will be an outstanding teacher with a strong personal drive, coupled with the desire to use this to support and grow the quality of teaching in others. They must set high expectations for pupil achievement and have a clear understanding of how to secure high standards in learning across the school.

We can offer you:

  • A school full of fantastic children who will add sparkle to every working day!
  • A united and supportive staff team.
  • Effective and tailored professional development opportunities to support you in your leadership journey.

This is a brilliant opportunity for an experienced middle leader looking for a step-up into senior leadership, or an existing senior leader looking to move to a friendly school and a new challenge. In this leadership role, you will be working alongside a strong senior leadership team, who are ambitious in striving to achieve our vision for the school. You will have whole class responsibility (leadership time provided to enable you to carry out your role effectively) which means that you will be able to make use of all opportunities to utilise the school's resources and express your passion for education within the classroom.
