    Executive Principal

    Salary: Competitive ISR (to be negotiated)

    Required for: September 2019
    Closing Date: Wednesday 3rd April 2019 at noon
    Interviews: Monday 8th/Tuesday 9th April 2019.

    The Maltby Learning Trust, established in February 2014, currently consists of two secondary and four primary academies situated in neighbouring localities, and these will be joined by Wath Comprehensive School later this term.

    Wath Comprehensive School is steeped in a tradition of high standards and expectations and continues to be oversubscribed and well regarded in the local community and Yorkshire region. The school has benefited from an extensive capital building programme that provides inspirational learning spaces across all specialist areas. Following the ‘Special Measures’ rating from Ofsted in March 2017 the school was issued with an academy order and Maltby Learning Trust was identified as the preferred sponsor. Whilst the transfer has taken much longer than anticipated the school has continued to work with a National Leader of Education from the Trust and is making significant progress.

    The Trust are seeking to appoint an ambitious, highly motivated and proven school leader to the role of Executive Principal at Wath Comprehensive School to help shape and drive the improvement agenda within the school and across the Trust. This role will provide much needed leadership capacity in Wath whilst the school undergoes a further period of change.

    This over subscribed school continues to make significant progress working alongside established members of the Maltby Learning Trust, accessing specialist capacity and support through the professional networks and team of specialist leaders in education.

    The Executive Leader will play a key role in determining the strategic direction of the Trust by working as part of the Executive Leadership Group, alongside the CEO and other Executive Leaders. This is an exciting time for the school and the Trust, following the recent recruitment and induction of new senior and executive leaders and the imminent addition of Wath Comprehensive School into the Trust. We are looking for an exceptional leader with the experience and qualities to inspire and motivate staff and students alike and take the school to the next level of successful performance.
