Start Application

This is a chance to be a key leader, not just of a school but as part of a new trust determined to make a real difference to young people in this part of the world. Together with Trust colleagues and the board, we are developing collaborative working across the trust. We are committed to offering the new Headteacher of Alde Valley Academy exceptional support.

Alde Valley has huge potential. Students want to be challenged to do well: where this happens now, they respond brilliantly. Our staff respond to clear leadership and a transparent approach to what is expected of them on the journey of school improvement. Our community wants success for their children and they are restless to see the academy flourish.

Outcomes are essential to life chances and the options available to our young people and we want to meet people at interview who can strengthen the academic ethos of the school and excellence in teaching. There are also important improvements to be made in the culture of the school, including behaviours in the broadest sense, integrated approaches to pastoral support, and working closely with parents and carers. To achieve this, we want to find a headteacher who can lead the school with moral conviction, clear plans and messages and real presence in school and within the community.

We have a huge opportunity, with large-scale investment coming into the area, to develop our offer and the quality of the experience students have access to. There is a determination to challenge the status quo and improve life chances locally, through a true partnership of schools, business, and the community, together with FE and HE.

We are interested in speaking with candidates who will be dedicated to the young people in our school. This role would suit an experienced, successful headteacher or a very strong deputy headteacher who can evidence their impact in the journey of rapidly improving a school.
