Deputy Headteacher

Salary:  L22 – L26 (£70,745 – £78,025)

Start date to be agreed

What would you do with this rare opportunity to play a key leadership role within our School?

We are looking for an astute, aspirational senior leader to work with the Headteacher to influence, motivate and build on our School’s vision, ethos and values and further inspire our pupils and staff.

About Us

Set in the North Yorkshire town of Harrogate, St Aidan’s Church of England High School is a mixed secondary school with a thriving community of over 2000 students aged 11-19.  Boasting one of the largest school-based sixth forms in the country, the pupil population is drawn from a wide geographical area across North and West Yorkshire.  St Aidan’s converted to academy status in 2011 with Yorkshire Causeway Schools Trust being formed as a multi-academy trust in 2014.

Rated ‘outstanding’ by OFSTED, St. Aidan’s School is regularly ranked among the top comprehensive schools in the country and was awarded Teaching School Status in August 2015.  Academically our School stands for excellence. An exceptional reputation and our Christian foundation are the reasons why we are so open to a fully inclusive model of education, enabling all children to fulfil their full potential whatever their starting points.

About the role

We are looking for an exceptional leader with a clear picture of outstanding practice and a desire to further develop your leadership skills. You will be committed to the personal, moral and social development of our students as well as to the very highest academic standards, within the context of our Christian ethos and values.

Whilst the Headteacher will continue to have overall strategy and statutory responsibility for the School, the appointed candidate will contribute significantly to the strategic management and operational activity of the School.  The key focus for the role is on curriculum development and standards of learning for all pupils, including within the Associated Sixth Form. The successful candidate will deputise for the Headteacher and Associate Headteacher as required and will undertake an active and key role in the ongoing development of internal and external partnerships, as appropriate.

You will act as an ambassador for the School and your role as an education professional in a highly respected organisation will require you to engage effectively across the education network locally.
