Allenton School (in Ashburton) has over 440 students in a wonderful environment where ‘Together We Learn and Grow'. 

Ashburton is part of Mid-Canterbury, just one hour from Christchurch. We have stunning snow-capped mountains as our backdrop, along with fantastic braided rivers and lakes. 

We are looking for a new and outstanding school leader to begin at the start of the 2022 school year. We are aware that a notice period has to be given and would certainly wait until the beginning of Term 2 for the right candidate. 

The successful applicant will join the existing senior leadership team (Principal, Deputy Principal and Associate Principal - Middle Syndicate).

We are looking for a leader who has an excellent knowledge of effective practice and who is dedicated to getting the best out of our senior students.

The current associate principal leads literacy, digital technologies and physical education and health. While skills and leadership ability in these areas is desirable, specific areas of leadership will be negotiated with the principal.

There is currently a 0.3 FTTE release component for leadership and curriculum duties and a 0.7 FTTE teaching component. The teaching position is in a Y5–6 class.

We are seeking a positive professional who is competent in the use of digital tools and is willing to effectively integrate e-learning using Chromebooks and the Google Suite. The successful applicant must demonstrate culturally inclusive practice and be willing to be actively involved in activities within our school community.

The ideal applicant will be a skilled leader and highly motivated teacher who engages our AS ACEs (PB4L) through sound classroom management and who is able to establish positive relationships with Y5 and 6 students.

We look forward to welcoming you to our school – it's an exciting and vibrant place to work!
