• have a track record as a both class teacher and a leader;
• have high aspiration and the ability to manage change successfully;
• lead by example and have high expectations with regard to attainment, progress and behaviour;
• be passionate about developing teaching and learning and delivering a broad, balanced and appropriate curriculum;
• manage resources efficiently and effectively in a way that maximises performance and ensures the financial sustainability of the school;
• enhance strong links with the parents, parish, the local and diocesan family of schools and the wider community within the city and beyond.

In return we will offer:
• a supportive and aspirational governing board;
• a warm and welcoming school community;
• a community united in their desire to learn and improve together;
• the opportunity for continuing professional education working with Monkwearmouth Catholic Partnership schools, local National Teaching Schools and the wider Diocesan family of schools.
