  • Headteacher, Castlefield Campus


    Salary: L21 – L27

    Located just outside the centre of Manchester, in Hulme, Castlefield Campus provides a high quality and safe learning environment for up to 120 pupils with Education, Health and Care plans based primarily on a range of social, emotional and mental health issues. Castlefield Campus is part of Endeavour Federation, working in partnership with Meade Hill School and Southern Cross School (located to the north and south of Manchester respectively).

    There couldn’t be a better time to take on this leadership role. Having just expanded our capacity by opening a brand new KS3 building, we are now looking for an accomplished and capable individual who can get the very best from colleagues and make full use of our new resources to deliver great outcomes for our pupils.

    We’re looking for someone who can model our values and bring our vision to life in the day -to-day operations of the school: creating a therapeutic environment, delivered by expert practitioners that achieves positive outcomes for pupils. You’ll be a passionate advocate for developing tailored teaching and learning approaches for children. We are committed to providing high quality support, teaching and emotion coaching that helps our pupils develop their personal and social skills as well as enabling them to reach their full academic potential.

    It’s likely that that you are already working in a similar setting – though you could also come from a mainstream school. You’ll already have demonstrated effective leadership abilities in your career to date and will be able to demonstrate how you have affected improvement and change in your current school, and how that has led to better pupil outcomes. Your leadership style will be founded on a people-focused, open-minded and empathetic mindset, supported by highly developed communication skills. Your highly professional approach will enable you to quickly establish rapport and trust with colleagues, parents and other stakeholders, and your ethical leadership style will be highly evident to all.

    As part of Endeavour Federation’s leadership team you’ll bring a highly collaborative approach to ensure a consistency of approach, while continuing to tailor provision to pupil need. And you’ll be able to make the key connections between the operational and strategic – ensuring what happens on the ground in school is aligned to our vision and values and contributes to overall objectives.
