Homewood School and Sixth Form Centre

We build exceptional futures

Salary: £89,900 to £104,109 per annum

Position start date: August 2019

Homewood School & Sixth Form Centre isn’t just another academy – so this isn’t just another management challenge. Based in stunning surroundings in the lovely Weald of Kent, we maintain a full and diverse curriculum and do whatever it takes to give our students the best possible futures.

For our most academic learners, we offer a grammar stream - starting a journey that will gain them entry to their chosen university. Across all abilities, we deliver equally tailored support, backed by a diverse range of courses from the EBacc subjects through to beauty, catering and construction. Every student benefits from a state-of-the-art campus, including a dedicated school farm and theatre, as well as our unique I-College, where year seven to eleven pupils can take ownership of their learning in a truly interactive environment.

A school this remarkable needs a Principal of exceptional vision and imagination. Embodying our progressive ethos, you will inspire our 2100 students and more than 240 staff to take them to the next level. Building on our strengths in the performing arts, applied learning and the rural environment, you will join the Executive Team of the growing and successful Tenterden Schools Trust – giving you far-reaching influence over education in Kent.

Already a seasoned member of a senior leadership team or school leader, you will be familiar with developing a large team and capable of enhancing our academic, vocational, careers guidance and extracurricular provision. What’s more, you will be a high-profile ambassador for the school, demanding outstanding networking and relationship building skills, and you will be ready to leverage our students’ love of learning to release their full potential. Above all, you will be a true innovator with a holistic view of education – and the passion to make a lasting difference to the life of everyone who studies or works here.

In return, you will enjoy a unique working environment in the beautiful town of Tenterden in the heart of the Weald of Kent. We invest in our staff and you will be given a full induction programme and the support you require to progress. All teaching staff are provided with an IT device, discounts and offers with Kent Rewards and there is an independent nursery based on the school site which offers discounts to Homewood Staff.

Detail your successes in your application and get us excited about what you could bring to Homewood.
