Further Information

We are a small all through school (NOR c.650) 4-16, which was formerly independent, school serving a diverse community in which our family of staff and students are well known to each other. Christ College is an improving school that is becoming increasingly popular with parents. Pupils achieve well and the pupils behaviour is very good.

Christ’s College was newly sponsored in May 2019 by Emmanuel Schools Foundation (ESF), a unique multi-academy trust dedicated to offering an excellent education in Christian ethos schools of character for the whole community. With resources and assistance from successful neighbouring schools within ESF, we are raising standards and improving all aspects of the school. The vision is to establish Christ’s as an exceptional non-denominational Christian ethos school of choice for all the community.

We seek an experienced Assistant Vice Principal to join our strong leadership team to ensure sustained improvement.

The appointee will bring a rare combination of humility together with vision and clear resolve as a catalyst for change and rapid improvement. As well as being committed to our Christian ethos, he/she will lead decisively and effectively on the curriculum and standards.

You will have an inclusive mind-set and will also be a high-achieving graduate and qualified teacher with substantial leadership experience that includes a track record of whole-school improvement.

We’re a growing Trust and there will be opportunities to work collaboratively with other leaders and practitioners from other schools in the trust.
