As a Deputy Principal at West Craven High School, you will be providing essential support to our new Principal and the Senior Leadership Team.
The role provides an excellent career opportunity for a driven and ambitious leader to make the move into deputy principalship. It provides all the challenge and operational content of a ‘traditional’ deputy principal role, with the added bonus of sharing good practice and support and opportunities across the Trust.
We want to recruit the best person possible to this role, so we want to hear about your experiences and skill set so that we can tailor the role to your strengths.
It is an opportunity to directly impact on the lives of local children by ensuring that day-in, day-out they receive the very highest standards of teaching and learning, have varied life experiences and are nurtured in a safe and positive educational environment.
As a key member of the Senior Leadership Team (SLT) the successful candidate will have a key role in the raising of standards and securing excellent provision, for both students and staff, on our journey of school improvement. Working in an incredibly supportive environment, the successful applicant will have considerable opportunities for professional development through both recognised qualifications and coaching/mentoring opportunities.
