Job description

This role is perfect for a dynamic and ambitious senior leader, as it will offer an amazing opportunity to challenge yourself in every way and to make a genuine and meaningful difference in our community.

We find ourselves at a crucial point in our journey. Having joined the Co-op Academies Trust in December 2018 we are now poised, under the leadership of a new and exceptional Principal, to provide our students with the truly outstanding education they deserve. Our academy serves a diverse, vibrant and active community that are determined to be part of an exceptional academy and within this setting, the successful candidate will be able to rapidly identify and take decisive actions to ensure the progress of every child is valued and accelerated. We have a genuinely able cohort of students – all attainment measures are above the local authority averages whilst our eBacc uptake is significantly higher than national. We hope you share our excitement at the opportunity to drive the academy to prominence within the Trust and wider locality.

The successful candidate will recognise that a significant part of school improvement is the unfaltering adherence to its Core Values and the Co-op Values are embedded in everything we do. Our Ways of Being are critical to the way in which we operate:  Succeeding Together, Doing What Matters Most, Being Yourself Always and Showing You Care.

Co-op Academies Trust is a successful MAT based in the north of England, serving some of the country’s most vulnerable communities as part of a wider movement which addresses inequality by raising standards of education and pioneering socially beneficial actions.

If you feel you have the ability to make a difference beyond headline metrics; if you have the drive and passion to bring about socially responsible change, then we want to hear from you.
