  • Headteacher


    Egremont Primary School, Wirral


    Egremont Primary is a happy, warm school with a strong heritage. Well established at the heart of its community in Wirral, the catchment includes some of the most deprived neighbourhoods in the UK. Notwithstanding the challenges this brings, we think we’re doing lots of things right: the school is popular, and our reputation is strong. We’re committed to raising the aspirations and expectations of the whole school community, and we’re trusted to achieve the very best outcomes for local children. An experienced and effective interim Headteacher is currently in place, and is overseeing a wide-ranging programme of school improvement.

    Our new Headteacher will have a key role to play within and beyond the school, being visible and accessible to colleagues within the academy, across the Trust, and to parents and carers. You’ll build on its strengths, and instil the confidence and common purpose that will support rapid progress. In a time of change, it’s important that the school has strong, positive and clear leadership, with a distinct emphasis on improvement and establishing a shared vision to which staff can subscribe and support.

    Strong candidates will bring a consistent track record of leading a school (or schools) on an improvement journey, and will have an experienced appreciation of the key challenges involved. The ability to build successful relationships and to nurture a cohesive and consistent sense of purpose and ambition will be key. Your analytical approach, coupled with an adaptable leadership style, will enable you to quickly evaluate and determine priorities, and then work with others to build momentum and capacity.

    Closing date: 17 February. Interviews: 5 March.

  • Principal



    Start date: September 2020

    Priestley College in Warrington offers a diverse range of A-level and vocational courses to over 2,000 students. It’s an inclusive college with an excellent track record and reputation where students consistently achieve great results. The College is an integral part of the community, playing an influential role in raising attainment across all age groups. Priestley College is a founding member of The Challenge Academy Trust (TCAT), which currently consists of nine schools and the college, working together to deliver a cohesive education pathway from primary through to sixth form.

    Our new Principal will inherit an excellent foundation on which to build for the future: an experienced and committed staff group; a college estate that is well-maintained and fit for purpose; and a sound financial status that sees us looking forward with confidence and ambition. Our belief is that the College can be outstanding in all aspects of its provision, and the new Principal will play a key leadership role in harnessing the talent and capacity from within the College and across the Trust to make this happen.

    We expect that you will already have significant senior management experience in a further education or secondary school setting, and that you can bring a highly developed understanding of the current and emerging opportunities and challenges in the sector. This professional expertise should be complemented by your personal attributes and leadership style – combining commitment, drive, enthusiasm and resilience, and an understanding of how to get the very best out of others.
