Arnold Hill Academy                Trent Academies Group

Post                       Deputy Headteacher

Leadership             21-25

Required                September 2017

Following the promotion to Headteacher of the current postholder, this is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious and exceptional Senior Leader to join the Senior Leadership Team. We are looking for someone with drive and enthusiasm to help lead Arnold Hill Academy to Good - and beyond.

Arnold Hill Academy joined the Trent Academies Group in January 2016. This was following an OFSTED inspection in 2015 which led to the ‘serious weaknesses’ category. Since then the academy has been steadily improving. In October 2016 an HMI monitoring visit recognised that it was on track to be judged ‘Good’ at the next inspection. We are confident this will happen.

The specific areas of responsibility will be decided upon appointment as we believe that it is important to ensure that we have the right person, with complimentary skills, to enhance the capable Senior Leadership Team.

The key qualities that we are looking for include the following:

  • Proven leadership capability and readiness to assume responsibility for a key area of academy management.
  • High aspiration, vision and creativity. A belief that education has the power to change lives.
  • Resilience to overcome barriers to move the Academy from RI to Good.
  • Commitment to inclusion.
  • Commitment to working with colleagues across Trent Academies Group.
  • A passion to encourage all pupils to be the best they can be and able to act as a role model for other colleagues.
  • Able to lead CPD events and commitment to the development of skills in teachers and others who support learning.
  • A curiosity to be well informed of changes in the education world and how these will impact at AHA and across the Group.
