We are seeking a Headteacher to provide the professional leadership and management of the school, that will promote a secure foundation from which to achieve high standards in all areas of the school's work. We seek a leader who can demonstrate their ability to:

  • lead by example, holding and articulating clear values and moral purpose, and focusing on providing excellent education for all pupils

  • encourage the development of a culture that offers equality of opportunity to all pupils and staff
  • exercise strategic, curriculum-led financial planning to ensure the equitable deployment of budgets and resources, in the best interests of pupils' achievements and the school's sustainability
  • promote Christian values, where children develop a feeling of mutual care and respect for themselves, others and the environment
  • promote an ethos in which individual pupil responsibility for learning, positive behaviour, personal development, compassion and achievement is fostered; recognising difference and respecting cultural diversity
  • create outward-facing school which works with other schools and organisations to champion best practice and secure excellent achievements for all pupils.

In return, we can offer you:

  • engaged, hardworking and well-rounded pupils
  • enthusiastic teaching and support staff who embrace best practice and innovation
  • a fantastic and safe learning environment
