This is an excellent opportunity for a talented and enthusiastic colleague to join the Senior Leadership Team (SLT) at Saint Gregory’s, Bath and to be instrumental in continuing to develop and enhance our pastoral provision as a centre for excellence to ensure the best possible outcomes for all our children and young people.
Saint Gregory’s is a high performing, oversubscribed, 11-18 co-educational school which has maintained its Outstanding judgement in its most recent Ofsted and Diocesan inspections. Saint Gregory’s is founded on Catholic Christian values and with a strong family and community ethos. These values are the foundation of learning for our students, providing them with an academic start to life that is supportive, nurturing and inspiring. It is an essential requirement that you are a practising Catholic, someone who will act as a role model and be prepared to maintain the Christian values which underpin the very special and highly regarded family and community of Saint Gregory’s.
This is a key senior leadership post within the school with critical importance in developing and implementing the strategic vision for pastoral care at Saint Gregory’s, ensuring that the welfare, safety, health and happiness of every student is at the core of our purpose. We require the successful candidate to hold the relevant and up to date Level 3 DSL training or be willing to complete it as soon as possible on commencement of appointment.
The successful candidate will bring considerable passion and commitment to the role, working across the school to create a common vision of excellence, helping to make Saint Gregory’s a truly exceptional place to learn and work in.
This position is very much about the skills and qualities of the individual and we therefore welcome applications from exceptional senior leaders with experience in pastoral support who would like to develop their professional career and can demonstrate the passion and commitment to make a real, lasting and positive impact upon our school community.
The successful candidate will bring professionalism and academic credibility, balanced with warmth and sensitivity. Applicants must be able to demonstrate a deep understanding of pastoral and safeguarding issues, with the skill to lead by example and inspire others.
In return, the successful candidate can expect to join a committed and experienced senior leadership team who, together with our Governing Body, will provide you with outstanding professional support at every stage of your career. You will also discover a supportive team of teachers and support staff who take great pride in their work and celebrate one another’s success but are always seeking new opportunities to develop their expertise and enhance our educational provision. Finally, you will have the chance to work alongside our amazing, positive and inspirational student body who love learning and deserve the very best in teaching and learning opportunities.
