Hadrian Learning Trust wishes to appoint to the above positions at Queen Elizabeth High School in Hexham, a thriving market town a short drive from Newcastle.

QEHS is a very successful 13-18, mixed comprehensive high school with a proud history dating back to Elizabethan times. Our ethos is drawn directly from the original charter granted in 1599 to the people of Hexham on account of their “outstanding eagerness to promote good learning”. We believe that the highest academic standards for everyone should go hand in hand with education in its broadest sense, knowing that the arts, sport and other opportunities help shape us as individuals and as citizens of the wider world.

There is much that is already very good at QEHS: confident, well-behaved learners, dedicated, loyal staff, supportive parents and skilled Trustees. Your mission, should you apply and be successful, is to help make us even better. This is an exciting time to be joining us as we move into a period that could see significant growth and development. Please refer to the consultation section of our website, www.qehs.net, for details on proposals for possible change.

Head of School

Having been a successful Deputy Headteacher with a strong track record of success, you will be responsible for the day-to-day operation of the school, overseeing the leadership of teaching and learning and the school’s work to promote students’ personal development, behaviour and welfare, so that outcomes continue to improve.

Assistant Headteacher

We are primarily interested in applications from hard-working, conscientious, creative individuals who have a track record of using their initiative to design and implement strategies to secure improvement. Having a ‘pastoral’ leadership background would be desirable but is not necessarily essential as specific roles and responsibilities for September 2018 will ultimately be allocated based on the skills and experience of the whole team.

You can find out more details in the Person Specification and Job Description within the relevant candidate packs, available on our website www.qehs.net or via rstokes@qehs.net. If you wish to have a confidential discussion about the role, or would like to arrange to visit the school, please do not hesitate to contact Rachael Stokes on 01434 610362 or rstokes@qehs.net.

We are an equal opportunities employer and are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. An enhanced DBS check will be required for this post
