King Harold Academy is a superb place to work. Our pupils are ambitious and keen to learn and our staff are highly motivated, collaborative and supportive. We are always evolving and have aspirations to become a beacon of excellence in the sector.
We are seeking an Assistant Headteacher who is deeply committed to addressing educational disadvantage and has the highest of expectations for what pupils can achieve, regardless of their background or context. We are building a culture of excellence at King Harold, in which students are taught a challenging, knowledge-rich curriculum that gives them the currency they need to succeed in whichever path they choose.
As an Assistant Headteacher, you will support the leadership team to drive school improvement and shape the future of our community. As part of a relatively small secondary school, you will have the opportunity to develop many areas of school leadership, and responsibilities will be agreed upon in discussion with the Headteacher. You will receive excellent support and training to develop your leadership.
It is an exciting time to join King Harold. We are on a trajectory of exciting improvements and have a hugely determined community of students and teachers. Pupils' behaviour is excellent in lessons, allowing teachers the opportunity to deliver high quality lessons every day and drive exceptional achievement.
If you're interested in building a school community that provides a transformative education for its students, then King Harold Academy is an exciting opportunity for you.
