Deputy Headteacher


Full Time
Permanent
L22-26
From 1st Sept 2022
We are looking to appoint someone to our school with a commitment to upholding our traditional high standards and expectations, whilst also willing to lead on developments and changes we will need to make in the years ahead. With this in mind, we are inviting applications from candidates with varying backgrounds and experiences, who feel their skills can make a positive contribution to our school.

The position of Deputy Headteacher has become available after the retirement, at the end of this academic year, of a long-standing and highly respected Deputy Headteacher, who, historically, has held a curriculum leadership and management role. With this new appointment, however, we are not necessarily looking for a ‘like for like’ replacement, as we have existing members of our SMT who can take on the necessary responsibilities.

Littleover Community School is a diverse and highly successful 11-18 comprehensive school, with consistently outstanding levels of attainment and progress across the curriculum. We are proud of our academic record, and of the pastoral care which maintains a feeling of community in a large and expanding school. We are looking for a candidate who:

• Has experience as an effective senior manager/leader, for a minimum of 3 years in a comparable school.
• Has the ability to use a range of leadership and management styles in order to ‘bring staff along’ with proposed developments and projects.
• Is able to lead by example and have a high profile in the school, including challenging students, staff and others to produce positive outcomes.
• Is able to take difficult decisions, conveying outcomes clearly, positively and with sensitivity.
• Is able to develop and share the collective vision for Littleover Community School.

In addition, we offer:

• A strong and experienced leadership team.
• A dedicated and loyal team of staff.
• A friendly and positive working environment.
• A well-established programme of CPD for staff, with support and opportunities for career development.
• Consistently good examination results both at GCSE and A Level.
• Emphasis placed on both staff and student wellbeing.

If you feel you have the vision, dedication and experience to join this Outstanding school, we look forward to hearing from you.
