Thank you for your interest in the post of Assistant Headteacher (Educational Systems).  I hope that our website will give you a good overall “flavour” of the school, in particular our very distinctive ethos (

As you will see from the following information, this is a key senior leadership role which will enable the successful candidate to have a significant impact on the success of our school.  We are well known for the exceptional support for our students and for the provision of excellent personal development – these have a huge impact on the lives of our young people.  We are clear that we believe that teaching and learning is at the heart of everything that we do and that individual professional development is the most important way in which teachers, and all staff, improve.  As a problem-solving, people-focused systems thinker your role will provide the “glue” that ensures that all the systems of the school work effectively together in the best interests of students, staff and families.

This is a school where you can make a real difference and have a significant impact; whilst I strongly disagree with the recent Ofsted judgement (they got it wrong) we are always seeking to improve our provision in the best interests of our students and the community.

If you feel you are up to this challenge and share our ethos and values, I would love to see an application from you.   If not, I wish you good luck in your future career.
