Deputy Headteacher

Required for January 2020


Deputy Headteacher (Curriculum and Assessment)

Leadership Scale, Points 24-28 (£80,074-£87,512)


‘Aspiration Equality Excellence’


We are seeking to appoint a talented, dedicated and inspirational Deputy Headteacher to our senior leadership team – to lead on Curriculum and Assessment.  The post comes vacant as a result of the current post-holder having been internally appointed to the Principalship.  This is an exciting opportunity to take a pivotal leadership role in a school that has made rapid improvements over recent years and confidently expects to continue to do so.  Having been judged good by Ofsted in March 2013, we were emphatically confirmed as good and still improving in March 2017.


We are deeply proud of the improvements our school continues to make, particularly in relation to student achievement.   Our results have been steadily good, with 2019 coming in as a bumper year. Our attainment is the best it has ever been and early indications suggest that our progress is also going to be excellent – these results having been achieved through effective quality first teaching, carefully planned intervention and sheer hard work.


The person appointed to the post will need to be able to demonstrate:

  • Exceptional expertise in all matters relating to learning and teaching – including being a strong practitioner themselves and fully capable of impacting widely on the practice of others.
  • Substantial experience of successfully managing initiatives relevant to the role, as set out in the job description and person specification.
  • An unshakable commitment to our deeply held values about the importance of great schools in community transformation.


If that sounds like you, we would love you to apply and look forward to hearing from you.
