Further Information

SELEfirst has been rated as Outstanding since 2006, under the expert leadership of our current, retiring Head. We are now looking for a new head teacher who has the passion and vision to drive our school onwards so we can provide even better educational and social outcomes for all our pupils.

The successful candidate should have a proven record in school senior leadership. As our head teacher, you must be able to engage and enthuse all staff, governors, pupils and parents to deliver outstanding results for all our children, irrespective of ability.

As SELEfirst is a National Teaching School, we would expect our new head teacher to demonstrate an active role in either national or regional educational matters.

SELEfirst is the proud holder of a Platinum Arts Mark so a demonstrable passion for the arts would be highly desirable.
