Headteacher – Derby Cathedral School

Permanent, full-time

Salary: L33 – L39

Unique opportunity for an outstanding leader

We are looking for an enthusiastic and inspiring Headteacher to lead Derby Cathedral School as it continues to grow in terms of numbers and success.

The 11 – 19 secondary school opened in September 2018, established by Derby Diocesan Academy Trust (DDAT) and Derby Cathedral to help meet the need for additional high-quality secondary places in the Derby area and to give local families more choice. The school has had a successful start and is currently over-subscribed. There are currently two cohorts of students in school with a further cohort due to join in September 2020, and every subsequent year until full.

Derby Cathedral School is the first ever Church of England Secondary school in the Diocese. Work will commence shortly on the construction of state-of-the-art buildings in a high-profile location in Derby City Centre.

The school equips students with skills and qualifications that enable them to access high-quality careers in and around the city of Derby. The curriculum offer is broad and balanced and our specialism in Mathematics and Music is enhanced by strong links with the Cathedral Choir and Music Department, which has a track record of music tutelage. The curriculum specialisms are a key part of the school vision and represent a platform from which we build high levels of personal development, well-being and achievement from Year 7 onwards.

We are looking for a proven school leader who will ensure that the Trustees’ vision for Derby Cathedral School is embedded. Candidates with experience of successful Deputy Headship are welcomed and additional support will be given for the role of Headteacher.

You will be motivated to release talent from each and every student, regardless of aptitude or background. You will motivate students and staff to enjoy a full and varied enrichment programme of sport, the arts, interests and study in compulsory extended provision. You will fully support the Christian ethos of the school and Multi-Academy Trust.
