A strong Christian ethos, judged as Outstanding in our recent SIAMS, and faith guides everything that the John Wesley School does. The successful candidate, whilst not required to be a practising Christian, would need to fully embrace and promote our Christian approach. We have recently completed the expansion to a two-form entry school having just completed our 10th academic year. We aim to develop the whole child, by providing an environment that provides supportive opportunities throughout the school for each child to grow, encourage self-discipline, respect and care for others. Our 400+ children are highly involved in the life of the school.
The successful candidate will need to show strong and clear leadership, vision and determination along with compassion. The Headteacher, working with the governing body, will set the strategic direction to move the school forwards. It is essential that the Headteacher is a strong and effective communicator with the ability to inspire children, parents, staff, governors and maintain links with the local churches. Operationally, the Headteacher will need to have strong people management skills, financial acumen and the ability to ensure that effective systems exist across the school.
