We are seeking an exceptional new Headteacher to take forward this larger than average, inner city, primary school. The school is nestled in a residential area in the south east of the vibrant waterfront City of Portsmouth. Portsmouth is the UK’s only island city and much of it is densely populated. We are a two form entry primary offering a unique opportunity to lead a school with an attached autism provision, a higher than average number of students from ethnic minority background, and with 43% of children eligible for Pupil Premium. This is a really interesting and exciting challenge for the new Headteacher, in a school that draws its pupils from across the city. Ofsted recently rated the school as requires improvement (May 2017), and we have already begun our journey of improvement. This is an ideal opportunity for the right candidate to influence and inspire that journey to good and then outstanding and make a difference to the lives of our children.

If you have the vision, passion and rigour for improving outcomes then we want to hear from you. As a great teacher yourself you will know what outstanding teaching looks like in the classroom and how to achieve it, and your strong leadership skills will bring staff along on our journey.
