North Harrow
St Anselm's Catholic Primary School


St Anselm’s Catholic Primary School is situated in Harrow-on-the-Hill. We are a larger than average sized Primary School and an intrinsic part of the local Catholic community. Our school is friendly, welcoming and high achieving and has been judged to be Outstanding by Ofsted.

Due to the retirement of our current Headteacher, the governing body wish to appoint a new school leader. This is a rare and exciting opportunity for the right person.

Our school is about so much more than just results. Everything we do is underpinned by our Catholic faith, and we work in partnership with parents and the Church to provide opportunities to develop the spirituality of our children. Our mission Statement, ‘Learning and growing together through prayer, belief and love’ is at the heart of our Catholic ethos which permeates all areas of school life.

The Governors wish to appoint a Headteacher committed to this ethos and who will lead and develop the school based on this mission.

Applications are invited from Headteachers or Deputy Headteachers with outstanding leadership experience.

The successful candidate will be:
  • a practising Catholic, committed to the values of Catholic education, with leadership experience in a Catholic school.
  • a passionate, experienced and ambitious educator, with the vision to articulate clearly the role that he or she will take in further developing our school
  • a highly effective teacher and leader of learning, with experience of delivering a broad, rich and varied curriculum that meets the needs of every pupil
  • a genuine commitment to team working and the development of all of our staff
We can offer the successful candidate:
  • Children who are committed, enthusiastic and fully engaged in their learning.
  • Professional and dedicated staff and active Governors.
  • Excellent opportunities for further professional development.
  • Strong support from parents, Governors and the Catholic community
    Visits to the school (following social distancing guidelines) are encouraged and warmly welcomed. If you think this exciting opportunity is for you, the Governors look forward to meeting you and receiving your application.

Closing Date for Applications: Wednesday 16 September 2020 at 4.00pm
Interview Date: Monday 28 September 2020 Completed applications should be marked for the attention of the Chair of Governors to: office@st-anselms.harrow.sch.uk
