We are looking for a committed and caring leader to take our successful village school on the next phase of its journey with “God at the heart of everything we do”.

This December 2022, our current head will be retiring, leaving the school in a fantastic position; there is a strong teaching and support staff team in place with a highly experienced deputy head and numbers on roll have grown over the last five years, including the set-up of a thriving pre-school on site. The school has strong relationships with parents, carers and families, and with the local parish and community.
Due to the size of the school, the successful headteacher will also take on some teaching responsibilities.
