  • Headteacher, Cardinal Heenan Catholic High School

    Leeds

    With achievement on an upward trajectory, there is a real sense of momentum and shared purpose here at Cardinal Heenan, and we will look to our new Headteacher to maintain pace and purpose and build on our considerable strengths. Located in North Leeds, we play an active role in our local community, and as an oversubscribed Catholic High School we attract a diverse student population from across the city.

    With just over 900 pupils and a committed team of very talented staff, our school offers an excellent and personalised learning environment. We offer a wide curriculum that is designed to engage and motivate children from all backgrounds and abilities, while ensuring that academic achievement is central to all that we do. And we are confident being measured by our outcomes – achieving our best ever GCSE results in 2016/17. Looking forward, our emphasis will be on continuing our journey from good to outstanding, and doing more to build effective, reciprocal partnerships across the learning community in Leeds.

    This is an outstanding opportunity for an ambitious Catholic leader, who can clearly articulate a direction of travel, promote an inclusive and collaborative approach to improving outcomes, and establish clarity around expectations and responsibilities. You should have clear ideas on what makes a great learning environment, a commitment to developing and supporting colleagues to achieve their best, and a compelling aspiration to support young people in achieving their full academic and personal potential.

  • Principal, Skegness Grammar School

    Lincolnshire

    With a remarkable history stretching back to the 15th century, Skegness Grammar School is one of the longest established grammars in the UK. We’re incredibly proud of our school, its students and staff, and we are determined to continue our current rapid transformation and improvement. The whole school has made great strides under the capable direction of our interim leader, and our next Principal will therefore find a very sound set of foundations on which to build. Nevertheless, we are not complacent about the need to focus on enabling all pupils (including the most able) to be able to realise their full potential – both as learners, and as young people.

    The strongest candidates will bring a rare combination of experience and vision: the experience to continue our trajectory of achievement and attainment, and the vision to maintain our unique position as a grammar school with a boarding house. We want to hear from leaders who have worked in improving schools, but who also understand the great importance of high-quality, nurturing boarding provision to parents who are based both in the UK and overseas.

    There’s no question that you will need a quiet resilience, a clear picture of what good looks like, and the interpersonal skills to engage with the whole school community. But the rewards for success will be considerable, both within the David Ross Education Trust and beyond; and we expect that this opportunity will attract the very top cohort of aspiring Principals. The David Ross Education Trust, of which this academy is a part, is committed to investing in the ongoing professional development of staff and to providing career progression opportunities. These are supported through the academy regional hubs of education excellence, as well as its relationships with outstanding external partners, including the National College, Future Leaders and Teach First.

  • Principal, Scarborough UTC

    North Yorkshire

    We’re delighted to be working with Scarborough UTC as they seek  to appoint a Principal to lead their school through its next exciting phase of development. The position becomes available due to the retirement of our current Principal who successfully steered the UTC through its opening and has established its early reputation for high quality academic and technical learning for 14-18 year olds.

    Scarborough UTC, with specialisms in engineering and computer science, opened in September 2016 in a state-of-the-art new building with facilities and equipment to match. It is favourably positioned close to Scarborough town centre on a prestigious £47 million development, which alongside the UTC boasts a new university campus and Sports Village.  The UTC is a school for 14-18 year olds with world-class sponsors such as GCHQ, Plaxton, Unison Group, McCain, Deep Sea Electronics and the University of Hull. These partners commit generous time and resources to ensure our students receive a relevant and leading edge technical and academic experience. An experience which accelerates their entry into careers in engineering and computer science through preparation for related university degrees or high level apprenticeships. Students study for approved Technical Qualifications, GCSEs and A-Levels. Ours is a distinctive offer, delivered through a challenging and applied curriculum. A programme of study which blends technical and academic routes with embedded employer projects and university enrichment.

    The new Principal will build on current foundations and lead the UTC through its next phase of development and expansion. He/she will secure the best educational outcomes and employer experiences for all students, whilst providing them with clear progression routes for their careers and professional development. Studying with us gives students access to a range of exciting careers in the many areas of future engineering, such as advanced manufacturing, automation, robotics, programming, artificial intelligence and cyber security.

    As Principal, you will be a passionate and school leader with the ability to inspire staff, students, parents, employers and our wider community. We are looking for a leader with:

    • an expansive long-term vision for Scarborough UTC;
    • the professional skills and characteristics to drive and implement that vision;
    • a secure understanding of the ever-changing education landscape, system leadership and capacity building in financially challenging times;
    • the ability to build, sustain and draw on effective business, employer, and community partnerships;
    • the ability to lead, manage, motivate, and inspire staff, students, parents, employer and higher education partners and the wider community; and
    • a proven highly effective, open, and collaborative approach.

    This is a career-defining opportunity for a current school leader to provide innovative and world-class provision, with the support of employers and academic partners, to meet the needs of all learners at the UTC.
