Assistant Principal (L12-16)

Due to the significant expansion of this heavily-oversubscribed school, we are increasing our leadership team for next academic year. A significant part of the role for this Assistant Principal will include the Standards and Achievement of students at a particular key stage; other aspects will depend on the strengths, experience and interests of the successful candidate. You will have proven experience as a middle or senior leader in successfully leading strategies and staff to support and promote increased levels of achievement for all students. An interest in pastoral care is essential, but significant experience and knowledge in this area is not. The overriding requirement is for someone who is able to contribute to whole school development, working with and through others to further improve practices and outcomes.

Soar Valley is an outstanding school where ‘teaching is exemplary’ and ‘students are proud to belong to the college’ (Ofsted November 2014). Outcomes are excellent; Progress 8 measures 2017 put us in the top 11% of schools nationally. The thing we are most proud of however, is our unique and caring ethos, which inspires success for all, making this a great school at which to develop your career. The successful candidate will join a senior leadership team which works extremely effectively and cohesively, and is highly committed to the success of the college. Our staff team is supportive and friendly; our students are a vibrant, culturally mixed, high achieving group; we offer state-of-the-art accommodation and facilities; and this post offers an excellent opportunity for the professional development of the right candidate.

Please see our website for further details. Interested candidates are welcome to visit the school before making an application should they wish. To arrange a visit please contact Smita Stone, SLT PA

Closing date: Friday 23rd March 2018, 3pm.
