Headteacher (Easter or September 2020 start)

Thomas Hinderwell Primary Academy is a happy, welcoming and vibrant school, with a strong ethos of enabling each of our children to achieve their full potential through high quality teaching and learning. Located on the outskirts of Scarborough, we offer a world-class education for children aged 3-11, with dedicated nursery and early years provision on a well-equipped site.

Real strides are being made in teaching and learning, but we are not complacent, and know there is more we can achieve for our children. Our motivated and high-quality staff are committed to building on recent rapid improvement and we are looking for an inspiring and ambitious Headteacher to lead the whole school community to a stronger future.

As our new Headteacher, you will bring a compelling blend of professional ability, focus and ambition for the school. With an inclusive, visible, leadership style and a determination to deliver a world-class education. You’ll engage teachers, children, parents and carers alike in your vision for their learning. We’re particularly interested in your approach to raising and extending overall achievement for students and building a culture of sustained and focused collaboration that produces exceptional outcomes.

You will bring an understanding of how to ensure that we continue to gain and retain the confidence and commitment of parents to their child’s learning journey. Your positive and reflective focus on classroom practice will embed better teaching, learning and assessment throughout the school, building children’s own aspirations, as well as ours on their behalf.

About the Trust

The Trust is committed to becoming one of the top-performing multi-academy trusts in the country. Recognised as a nationwide system leader, the Trust works with 34 primary and secondary schools across the country, ranging from small rural primaries with around 50 children, to much larger secondary schools in urban areas. Working together, with a shared ethos and values, our close-knit family of schools allows pupils to begin and continue their world-class academic journey throughout primary and secondary school within the Trust.

About You

Whether you're an experienced Headteacher or are embarking on your first step into this role, you will need a strong track record of working in a context of rapid improvement, with a good understanding of how to involve the whole school community in their shared educational journey. We are particularly keen to hear from candidates who can demonstrate outstanding effectiveness as a classroom practitioner but who also bring impressive skills in strategic management, resource management, development planning, personnel management and financial management.
