Following the promotion of our Head of School, the Governors, Staff, and families of Worth Primary School are seeking to employ a highly ambitious and talented leader to take on the role of Head of School.  This is an excellent opportunity for an individual who has demonstrated impact at a whole school level to support the school’s team in continuing to raise standards.

We are seeking a Head of School who:

  • An outstanding classroom practitioner.
  • An individual with a proven track record of raising standards at a whole school level.
  • An individual who can effectively support and challenge staff, pupils and families.
  • An ambitious individual who aspires to headship.
  • A nurturing person who also has the highest expectations for behaviour and learning.
  • An effective communicator.

We can offer you:-

  • Enthusiastic, happy, motivated children
  • A committed team of teachers and support staff
  • An engaged and supportive Governing Body
  • Excellent relationships with the wider community
  • The opportunity to work with local schools in a strong collaboration
