Start date: September 2019
Contract type: Full Time
Contract term: Permanent
The Whitehaven Academy is a school with enormous potential, and we are deeply proud to have been selected to welcome it to our Trust. While there have been undoubted challenges in recent years, there is a shared determination to continue the trajectory of improvement and achievement for all.
This is an excellent opportunity for a talented and committed education professional to confirm their leadership credentials in a high profile and multifaceted setting. It’s a role that demands a highly developed understanding of the foundations on which sustainable school improvement are built – from the practicalities of what goes on in every classroom, to the relationships within the school and with the community that are fundamental to building confidence, momentum and trust. The successful candidate will be part of CET’s Leadership Team.
In what will be a visible and scrutinised role, you will bring exemplary integrity, leadership and resilience, together with a clear focus on pragmatic, practical strategies that will enable us to consolidate and build a stronger future together. You will have extensive experience of school leadership; but your career-long ambition to keep making more of a difference, to more students, will be undiminished.
