HEAD OF YEAR

Band A (£32,157) - Band C (£50,935) plus Management Allowance 4, £8,291

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced leader to join our team at Drayton Manor High School.

We are looking to appoint a Head of Year who will play a vital role in our school’s leadership as we embark on the next phase of our journey. We are proud of our robust academic and pastoral ethos and are looking to take the impact of our work to even higher levels so that what Drayton Manor offers the education system will become ever more distinctive.

As Head of Year, the post holder will be expected to undertake the strategic pastoral and academic lead for a Year group with close support provided by a dedicated senior leader and administrative support from our Pastoral Support Team.

The successful candidate you will be expected to lead by example and challenge us to deliver the very best learning opportunities for our students. They will prepare and oversee the implementation of improvements intended to anchor our ethos and standards ever more deeply into the life of the school, building on what has already proved successful and drawing on the experience of other schools. We are looking for a leader who strives for excellence in all that they do and believes in our aspirational ethos. The fit and commitment towards these goals and our ethos is extremely important to us and therefore we will assign the year group according to the strengths, knowledge and skills of the successful candidate.

Deliberate Practice, Curriculum specific training and Instructional Coaching are at the heart of our pedagogical training model with every teacher having the opportunity to work one-to-one with an expert coach. Additionally, we have a legacy of developing educational leaders including supporting staff through a range of National Professional Qualifications. The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate an ongoing commitment to professional development in all areas of their practice. Our school motto of ‘Nec Aspera Terrent – hardships do not deter us’, is at the heart of our ethos and we live this vision every day in our work with our students and everything that we do.

Drayton Manor is a heavily oversubscribed, diverse, vibrant and successful school with proud traditions and an excellent reputation. Our three values of Ambition, Character and Civic Virtue embody everything we do, from our wide and ambitious curriculum to the extensive charity and support work our students undertake in the wider community. We truly believe in developing young people to be successful citizens for the future.

Candidates who have extremely high expectations and are keen to take a full and active role in the life of the school are encouraged to apply. This role requires excellent communication skills, meticulous attention to detail and a firm commitment to upholding the ethos, values and expectations of the school.

We offer

• The opportunity to work for an organisation which is values driven and places our students at the centre of everything we do

• The opportunity to work with fantastic students who are aspirational and driven to succeed

• Access to high quality CPD and support with career progression to Assistant/Deputy Headship and Headship

• Magnificent buildings and an attractive and harmonious working environment

• An exciting opportunity to be involved in shaping the future direction of the school.

The closing date is 12 noon, Thursday 13 October 2022.

Interviews will take place week ending Friday 21 October 2022.
