We need a team player and reflective practitioner with an open mind and genuine collaborative approach to leading teaching and learning. Being pastoral by nature with an ability to lead ‘outside the square’ essential.

We have nationally and internationally recognised curriculum initiatives, with visitors to our school happening almost weekly. We have an excellent reputation and you will be naturally driven, optimistic and excited about the future possibilities in education as a leader, in an environment that allows everyone to 'be all (they) can be'. We need your help to lead these cool initiatives! Be prepared to be challenged in a good way and drive new ideas in a school that does not sit still.

We want a leader who will be eager to seek presentation experience, write articles and take up opportunities to grow our messages about education locally, nationally, and internationally. As a leader, you will know how to think, and not be bound by conformity, rules, or 'one-size-fits-all' models. You will be part of a fun, enthusiastic staff that put the passion back into our profession. Our students and staff want to be here. A willingness to contribute to community initiatives essential.

Specific areas of leadership include: Overseeing curriculum development, assessment and reporting practices schoolwide, and the SENCO lead.
