Dame Alice Owen's School - Assistant Headteacher - Head of 6th Form - Required for January/April 2021

Alliance member: Dame Alice Owen's School

Closing date: Tuesday, 1st December 2020

Required for January/April 2021
Dame Alice Owen’s School is a truly ‘outstanding’ (Ofsted) 11-18 co-educational school with an enviable reputation for adding value to its mixed, part selective intake. In 2019 the school achieved 85% A level entries graded A*- B and 95% GCSEs graded 9- 4. In 2020, we had 27 students who were offered Oxbridge places.
As a result of the need to expand our team and an internal restructure, we are seeking a committed educator with student-centred values who has a proven track record in pastoral care and a genuine love of teaching and learning to assume the challenging and rewarding role of Head of 6th Form. This role will start in January or April 2021 depending on your circumstances. The successful applicant will also be a member of our Senior Leadership Team.

Based in its own generous grounds in the Hertfordshire countryside, Dame Alice Owen’s School is close to Potters Bar station and is served by numerous buses. With thanks in no small part to the support we receive from the Worshipful Company of Brewers, we have state-of-the-art music, drama, science, teaching and art blocks together with extensive playing fields, all of which help us maintain a highly motivated staff and student cohort. The shared sense of purpose and ethos inspires both students and staff to be the very best they can be.

You may already hold a position of responsibility within pastoral care, maybe even within the 6th Form or you may be seeking a role offering greater scope for personal development. This position will allow you to implement your innovative ideas to inspire and lead our colleagues and students to even greater success.
We will reward the successful candidate with a competitive salary and benefits, an opportunity to improve on our already excellent record, and to develop their leadership potential in this exceptional school community.
