2 x ASSISTANT HEAD TEACHERS – Leaders of Learning and Achievement


Are you ready for change? Do you want an opportunity to do things you may only have dreamed about? Would you like to work in a vibrant learning environment with wonderful children, professional and friendly staff and supportive parents and governors?

Following the promotion of a senior leader, we are seeking to appoint two exceptional teachers to join the leadership team as Assistant Headteachers and work with the staff at the school in the task of taking Rayne on to even greater achievement. We are looking for teachers who are ambitious and eventually want to lead a school of their own in the future.

The successful candidates will be prepared to lead a phase within the school and work as a significant partner in the Senior Leadership Team in shaping the teaching and learning within the school. The Assistant Headteachers will work closely with the Headteacher and be prepared to deputise in her absence.

This is an exciting opportunity to join an energetic and collaborative team.

The successful candidates must have:

an expert knowledge about the process of learning
excellent interpersonal and leadership skills
the ability to make a difference
Precise responsibilities will be negotiated upon appointment, however we are keen to hear from candidates who are interested and able to lead on standards and performance. Flexibility will be an important criteria for selection.

· Visits to the school are welcome. In the first instance, please contact Mrs Falco on 01376 324 959 to arrange an appointment.

· An application pack can be downloaded from or collected from the school office by prior arrangement.
