The Role

An exciting opportunity has arisen for our school to recruit an enthusiastic and committed full-time Subject Leader from September 2022.

We are fortunate in already having a very strong team in place with outstanding colleagues and inspirational leadership, who are committed to delivering an engaging and deep curriculum.

Although there is a TLR associated with this post, we would also consider applications from ECTs and experienced teachers who are not looking for a Subject Leader position and do not was a TLR position. Outstanding support is provided for ECTs through our very supportive and structured ECT programme. Our bespoke CPD programme for all staff is centred on our commitment to improvement at every level of the organisation.
