Both schools and the school nursery are member of Barnsole Primary Trust.

  • a leader who has the highest expectations of themselves and others?
  • a dynamic primary practitioner who understands outstanding teaching and learning across the Early Years and Years 1 to 6?
  • a dedicated team player with energy, drive and creativity?
  • innovative and committed to school improvement?
  • committed to the highest possible expectations and pupil outcomes?
  • a strong communicator with emotional intelligence?
  • ambitious and committed to your own professional development?
  • a leader with a sense of humour?

We can offer you…

  • pupils who are enthusiastic, fun and caring.
  • a dynamic and supportive Senior Leadership Team.
  • opportunities for career development.
  • a 100% focus on improving outcomes for all our pupils.
  • a vibrant, energetic and fun place to work.
