Are you an Assistant or Deputy Head Teacher in Secondary Education, ready to step into your first headship? Can you lead a school to Outstanding?
Following the retirement of their current Headteacher, a small school in south Cambridge are looking for someone like you to take the school onwards. This is a lovely school who have maintained their Good status and have achieved fantastic results for their students due to an innovative approach to teaching and learning.
The school is supported by a multi-academy trust. There is a clear vision in place and a rigorous support system by the Regional Principal and other buddy Headteachers who will support you if this is your first headship. For experienced Headteachers, this will also be offered and you will have an opportunity to work collaboratively.
As their next Headteacher, you will lead the school through to Outstanding; you will therefore have experience of leading (or being part of the SLT) a school at this level. This is a role for a leader who is keen to remain visible in school and will take a genuine interest in staff and students; able to give advice and guidance when popping into lessons and be a trusted and aspirational manager. This is a school and trust who consistently celebrate the success of their students and staff.
Working for this multi-academy trust will give you the chance to lead in a truly innovative way, with tailored support and the opportunity to liaise internationally.
In return, you will be able to show:

  • A solid background in secondary education
  • Experience as an assistant or deputy head in a large secondary school, or as a Headteacher in all-through or secondary education
  • A good track record and understanding/experience of taking a Good school to Outstanding
  • An innovative approach, with an open mind to new methodology
  • That you are professionally up to date with a good overview of technology within education (you dont need to be a tech specialist!)
  • A collaborative but determined outlook
  • A very strong understanding of safeguarding
