  • Who is currently an effective classroom teacher, demonstrating up-to-date teaching practice in teaching, assessment and reporting, and
  • Who is willing and keen to professionally grow and develop.

We really want to hear from effective classroom teachers who are motivated, and passionate about students and their learning and achievement.  Should you be at the stage of your career where you wish to further grow your leadership capabilities, and move into principalship, then this could be the opportunity for you. Your application is most welcome.
