  • Principal, Boulevard Academy

    Following the retirement of the Principal in August 2018, trustees are seeking to appoint a new leader to The Boulevard Academy: someone passionate, inspirational, and visionary; to lead education and continue to make a sustained difference at our academy as it enters the next stage of its development.

    The Boulevard Academy is a popular, 11 – 16 academy in Hull with just over 600 students on roll which opened in September 2013, on the site of Hull FC’s former Boulevard ground. Many families committed themselves to the Academy long before it was open, demonstrating their desire for the provision of a high-quality education in this locality for their children. From the outset, our goal has been to create an inclusive school which reflects these high expectations and aspirations.

    Boulevard was judged outstanding in May 2015, just two years after opening. We are well-respected locally and regionally, with proven practice and provision at all levels. Our curriculum challenges and inspires staff and students alike. We are hungry for further innovation and development and our new leader will take these strong foundations and grow even more success at The Boulevard Academy.

    We demand the very highest standards from all members of our community and in return we offer an exceptional opportunity for an exceptional leader to play a key role in the next phase of the Academy’s development. You will ensure our habit of excellence continues and as our new leader, you will respond to the challenges of the sector in partnership with trustees and stakeholders, positioning the academy as the provider of choice in the local area and beyond. You will be a visible and visionary leader, with the gravitas and credibility to motivate and inspire all those involved in our work. You will bring a proven track record, with the drive to ensure sustained success of the academy and positive outcomes for all our students.

    For an informal (and confidential discussion) or to arrange a visit, please contact Jo Fish or Rachel Singer on 0113 287 8445. To find out more and for information on how to apply, visit www.leadboulevard.co.uk.

  • Principal, UTC Leeds

    West Yorkshire

    The Leeds City Region has a proud history of engineering and manufacturing. The aim of University Technical College Leeds is to provide high quality academic and technical learning for 14-18 year olds, ensuring that the city, and the surrounding region, has a fresh generation of engineering talent which will enable the sector to adapt to technological change and thrive.

    As our new Principal, you will arrive with success already firmly established. UTC Leeds is sponsored by the University of Leeds, which is among the top 100 in the world for engineering and technology, and our teaching staff are experts in their fields. Our learning environment is unique and inspiring, with state-of-the-art, hi-tech facilities which opened in September 2016. We’re already thriving and attracting large numbers of talented students: the fact that we are currently over-subscribed for applications into Years 10 and 12 for September 2018 is testament to the fact that we’ve crafted a distinctive and relevant offer, delivered through a challenging and applied curriculum. It’s a creative programme of study that blends academic and technical routes with integrated employer projects and university enrichment.

    The next phase, therefore, is to raise our profile as a specialist institution developing knowledgeable, confident, sought-after STEM students. Leeds is the fastest growing city outside London, so we have an exceptional opportunity to support and fuel the growth of this prosperous city and the broader region. You will create strong links with our sponsors and effective partnerships with local employers, capitalising on every opportunity to improve learning experiences and broaden exposure to cutting-edge technologies. Ultimately, you will build on our first two years of success and build our reputation  ̶ for producing ambitious, well-rounded individuals who are tech-savvy, independent learners and creative, commercially-focused problem-solvers.

    We’re not content to simply be good enough. Our vision is to inspire, impress and to innovate. A proven track record of leadership and achievement within a secondary school is essential, along with a demonstrable drive to maintain a culture of continuous improvement and high performance. Committed to creating a world-class educational environment, you will also have the awareness to see the bigger picture beyond the College: how UTC Leeds can actively contribute to making Leeds and the wider region a hub for technical excellence.

    This is the kind of opportunity that can define your career and open new doors in the future. To find out more information, please visit www.leadUTCLeeds.com. For an informal and confidential conversation, please contact Rachel Singer or Jo Fish on 0113 287 8445.
