Information about the school

Dear applicant,

On behalf of our students, colleagues and trustees, I would like to thank you for your interest in a position at Rye College and Community Primary School. I hope you find the application pack both helpful and informative.

There is a long tradition of education in Rye that goes back to the foundation of the Grammar School in 1636. We are proud to be a significant chapter in the ongoing story of nearly four hundred years of learning in this ancient town.

There is significant transformational change to improve the standard of education and facilities at Rye College and Community Primary School – ideal for ambitious and talented individuals to truly make a difference and build upon our most recent OfSTED good grading. Having seen an impressive rise in progress and attainment outcomes over the last few years, we continue to focus on delivering academic excellence with a commitment to high-quality pedagogy and teacher training. At present, we are focused on instilling a sense of responsibility in all our students – a sense of ownership of their learning, of their schools, of their actions and of the consequences. In today’s complex world, children need both the knowledge and skills to compete in a global market place but also need a sense of their humanity – the ability to respect, to empathise and to be caring and compassionate people.

We are looking to recruit an experienced individual to our associate team who wants to raise standards and continue our transformational journey through the creation of a vibrant and innovative environment. Central to this is an ability to work in partnership with our families and other professionals to continue our mission to build amazing schools that deliver excellence for every one of our young people.

In your application, please outline why you would like to join us, how you meet the person specification and what might make you irresistible. We value honesty.

I look forward receiving your completed application.

With thanks,

Barry Blakelock Executive Headteacher
