We can offer you:

• A supportive environment for a leader with passion and drive to maintain our high - quality teaching and learning environment;
• A strong and effective senior leadership team to work with you and support you;
• A wider staff team who work extremely well together and who are keen to continue to provide the very best opportunities for children;
• Strong partnerships with local schools.

We are looking for an individual who is successful and believes that while schools are infinitely improvable we must also cherish the vision and direction that has been created and developed within our culture.
