Harry Watts Academy is a specialist free school in Sunderland opened in September 2020 for autistic pupils aged between five and sixteen years. We pride ourselves on having a shared belief that all children have a right to the best education that can be provided and a learning and working environment where all are respected, valued and achievements celebrated.
Harry Watts Academy is a split site school, with locations in both Sunderland (Redhouse) and Washington (Harraton). Currently, our Engage and Explore pathways are based at Redhouse and our Discover pathway is based at Harraton. You will therefore be willing to support the teaching and learning of pupils on any of our three pathways on either of our sites.
Due to the internal promotion of the Assistant Headteacher, we require a forward thinking Assistant Headteacher to join the successful leadership team to continue success, both now and into the future. Reporting directly to the Headteacher, you will ensure the vision, values and ethos of Prosper Learning Trust are at the core of the development of the school while implementing Trust systems and protocols to facilitate its smooth running. The role will require you to be a dynamic and professional leader, able to motivate staff, set high expectations, enhance achievement and facilitate rigorous and continuous self-evaluation.

Whether you are a serving Assistant Headteacher or have significant experience as successful middle leader looking for a new challenge, what is clear is that you will have an exceptional track record of success, specifically in relation to SEND, behaviour and attitudes and the successful implementation of full school initiatives, with positive outcomes for all pupils regardless of background or ability. Prosper Learning Trust is at a very exciting stage in its development. We will provide you with the resources and support you need in your efforts to excel in your role
