We require a forward-thinking and inspirational colleague to join our Senior Leadership Team (SLT) from September 2021. The Deputy Headteacher will be instrumental in the strategic management of our school, helping to lead and develop it as a centre for excellence in Catholic secondary education, whilst ensuring the best possible outcomes for all our 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.

This is a key senior leadership post within the school supporting the Headteacher to build upon our reputation for academic excellence whilst ensuring the safety, health and happiness of every student is at the core of our purpose. The successful candidate will work 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 and aspiring senior leaders who would like to develop their professional career in a Catholic school 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 the challenges and opportunities of leadership in schools, 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.
