Winstanley College – Deputy Principal

Salary £70,000 - £75,000 (for an exceptional candidate) plus Pension (GMPS or TPS) + Relocation

Do you share our vision to be outstanding?

Winstanley College is an award-winning college and is amongst the country’s highest performing Sixth Form Colleges. We are Ofsted-rated ‘Good’ in all aspects and are ambitious to be even better. To complete our team, we seek to appoint a Deputy Principal to relentlessly focus on making further improvements, no matter how large or small, to all aspects of our curriculum.

We consistently enrol c. 1,850 students from across the North West who really enjoy our positive working and learning culture and environment, and who go on to achieve very successful student outcomes. Retention is high and most students leave here with their chosen qualifications and follow excellent progression routes to university, apprenticeships and work. We are financially stable, with a vibrant campus and we feel this makes us a post-16 learning establishment of first choice, and a destination employer.

Our Deputy Principal will be a Senior Postholder and Nominee and will bring new ideas and aspiration to complement our existing high levels of drive and ambition for our students, and a proven exceptional track record of leading large academic teams to success.

You will play a key leadership role in delivering our future Teaching and Learning Strategy, where innovation is crucial in driving forward further improvements in our wide curriculum offer. You will have worked in either a college or school setting where performance was consistently very high, or Outstanding. You will know immediately what good curriculum looks like, and how to make it better.

You may already be a successful Deputy within an educational setting seeking a new challenge. You may be a proven Vice Principal or Assistant Principal, Deputy or Assistant Head Teacher seeking a large-scale new experience. We are looking to appoint someone with the vision, confidence, skills, and energy to drive forward curriculum improvement. You will have a passion for, and strong track record in, delivering great learner outcomes and the ability to inspire students and staff to achieve their full potential. In return, we will give you further opportunity to develop in your quest to be a Principal in your own right.

If this sounds like you then we do hope you will apply, and I would encourage initial discussions pre application with our recruitment partners at Protocol.
