Contract type: Full-time/permanent
Start date: April 2018
Having converted to academy status at the heart of L.E.A.D. Academy Trust in April 2017, we are a successful secondary school with just over 550 students. Our pupils are at the centre of everything we do: we have built a close-knit community where students and staff alike can really shine, and we have forged productive links with partners, including University of Derby, the arts centre QUAD and major local employer Toyota. What’s more, L.E.A.D. Academy Trust was described by Ofsted’s Chief Inspector Sir Michael Wilshaw as a “high performer” and has some very ambitious plans for the future – so this is an exciting time to join us and accelerate our improvement journey.
Providing inspiring and imaginative leadership to the Academy, you’ll set the highest standards in teaching, learning and personal conduct. Your remit will extend across academic achievement, finances, resources and administration, and you’ll go the extra mile to involve parents, carers and the community in everything we do. In short, you’ll be a powerful catalyst for change and will build on our significant success to date – so we need someone exceptional.
A qualified teacher and seasoned school leader with evidence of impact across whole school and proven outcomes from excellent teaching and learning. Equally, you’ll be a truly collaborative practitioner who values the contribution of every team member, sets exciting and achievable goals, and genuinely leads by example. Quite simply, you’ll go the extra mile to give our students the inner confidence and self-belief to succeed – enabling them to overcome disadvantage and becoming one of the most important influences in their lives.
