Are you up to the challenge of being the best you can be?

When you walk through the doors of Gosbecks Primary School, the experience is something special, a vibrant and stimulating environment that inspires our pupils to be the best they can be. It is this ethos which is part of the DNA of this amazing School and was recognised by OFSTED when they awarded us a Good rating in 2018.

Due to our current Headteacher moving on to become Her Majesty's Inspector (HMI) this summer, we need to plan for the next stage of our improvement journey and appoint a new Headteacher who will build on the successes of the past few years.

The new Headteacher for Gosbecks will have the unique opportunity of participating in the recruitment process for a new Assistant Head, as our long-standing colleague will be retiring this summer. The Governors are looking to recruit a strong leadership team that complement each other, and so offer this rare chance to shape the team by being involved in the selection process for the Assistant Head position.

We are therefore looking for an ambitious and passionate leader who can lead change, inspire a workforce, engage with stakeholders, parents and pupils alike to deliver an amazing experience for all.

If you think you are up to the challenge, why not come and see for yourself. Visits to the School are warmly welcomed and encouraged; please contact the School office on 01206 575407 to make an appointment.

We look forward to receiving your application; please do not hesitate to contact Liz Whitelock on 033301 39835 if you have any queries.

All appointments are subject to safer recruitment requirements to ensure the safeguarding of children and young people. All positions will involve appropriate checks and clearances.
