We are looking for an inspirational and engaging Deputy Headteacher who shares our commitment to providing a creative, stimulating and inclusive learning environment in which all children can achieve their full potential.

In return, we will actively support your professional development whilst offering an inspiring learning environment with engaged learners and a supportive community. This is an exciting opportunity to join a new team, shaping the future of our learners and drawing expertise both from within the school and from across the Trust. 

Birley Spa is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We require the successful applicant to undertake an enhanced criminal records check via the Disclosure & Barring Service. Please visit the school website to view our safeguarding policy.
