An exciting opportunity has arisen to join St Cuthbert’s Catholic High School as Deputy Head. For over one hundred years, St Cuthbert’s has been nurturing fine young men, preparing them to take their rightful place in the Church and in the world. We have provided our pupils and students with a challenging yet supportive environment within which to discover and develop their own God-given gifts.

The St Cuthbert’s experience is so much more than a comprehensive education. We strive to challenge our pupils to become young men of integrity, educated in faith and for justice. In keeping with the finest traditions of Catholic education, we strive to form young men of competence, conscience, compassion, and commitment.

We are looking for an inspirational, intelligent, and industrious Catholic leader and educator who can contribute to the continued growth and development of our school community.

This is a fantastic opportunity to play a central role in the leadership of an outstanding, all-boys Catholic School that has enjoyed a reputation as a centre of educational excellence for over one hundred years.

We welcome applications from serving deputy heads and experienced senior leaders ready for the challenges of deputy headship.

The specific duties and responsibilities will be to be determined on appointment, in the light of the successful applicant’s experience and the needs of the school.
