Full Time

The Trustees are seeking to appoint an Assistant Headteacher for Sedgefield Community College with effect from January 2021 or sooner.

Would you like to progress your career in an academy recently judged by OFSTED as ‘outstanding’, an academy where both student achievement and attitudes to learning are amongst the best in the entire North East and Cumbria region? Would you also like to work in a fantastic, recently built academy, set in one of County Durham’s most scenic areas? If the answer to each of these questions is ‘yes’ then Sedgefield Community College could be right for you.

This is a fantastic opportunity for experienced Middle Leaders. Do you have a proven track record of successfully and consistently raising achievement of large cohorts of all student groups regardless of prior attainment or background? Are you able to demonstrate knowledge and experience of leading improvements in the use of new technologies that have led to measurable improvements in teaching and learning? Do you have the aptitude to contribute to line management of other significant whole school strategies? Do you have both the ability and tenacity to build upon the outstanding success of our previous Assistant Headteacher and help take the school through its next stage of development? If the answer to each of these questions is ‘yes’ then we would like to hear from you.
