We are seeking a talented Principal, either an experienced or first time headteacher, to take on the role of Principal. The academy is in an area of social disadvantage where good leadership will make a transformative difference to social mobility. The academy showed a strong improvement in results this Summer and benefits from a spacious and attractive site with a good deal of green space.

For first time Principals, we can provide close support in the form of mentoring from an experienced Harris Principal, and for existing headteachers, we can offer opportunities to progress to Executive Principalship in the future.

The successful candidate will have a proven track record of school improvement in challenging areas. It is important to be a strong communicator with proven strengths in engaging with, inspiring and motivating not just the school community, but the wider community. In return, the rewards that we will offer you in terms of career opportunities and remuneration package will be second to none.

Why work for the Harris Federation?

As a top performing Multi-Academy Trust, we offer access to a professional and supportive community of academies, fellow Principals, and mentors to help develop and progress your career.

Harris is a Federation and not a chain; each Harris academy is different, reflecting the particular aspirations and leadership style of its Principal. All of our primary and secondary academies are rated ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted and we are recognised for transforming the life chances of the children and teenagers we educate.

We look for talented individuals who are able to transform schools in and around London into exceptional places of learning.

If you would like to discuss the post in confidence please call Sabeena Hasan, Primary Director, on 020 8253 7777.

Harris Academies are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All offers of employment are subject to an Enhanced DBS check. In line with our commitments to safeguarding, the Harris Federation uses preferred agencies and is unable to work with any agencies where Terms of Business have not been agreed by both parties prior to an engagement.
