Walton-le-Dale is a very distinctive school. Many visitors comment on the warmth and friendliness and the strong relationships between students and staff.  Our smaller size allows us to see each child as an individual and to cater for them individually.  This is, and will continue to be, a student-centred school. Everything we do must have the interests of our students at the heart of it. In order to make the best provision for our students we recruit and develop exceptional staff.

  • Be a brilliant teacher with a strong commitment to the individual development of each young person

  • Be an intelligent, people-centred leader able to support and lead others to develop the best possible provision for our student.

You will receive high quality support and encouragement from Governors, myself, the senior leadership team, and other middle leaders. If you feel you are up to this challenge and believe you have the same educational philosophy as us, we would welcome an application.   If not, I wish you good luck in your future career. 

Closing Date: Friday 20th May 2022.
