We are looking to appoint a committed professional to the role of Head of Year 9 at William Perkin CE High School. William Perkin Church of England High School was opened in 2013 and is part of the Twyford Church of England Academies Trust. Its GCSE results in its first two years of exams placed it in the top 10 schools in the country in terms of progress and it has grown a large and flourishing sixth form. The school is founded on the successful systems and approaches of Twyford CE High School, with the principle difference that it is a distinctively Christian school with open admission criteria. The school is rated ‘Outstanding’ in all areas by Ofsted (June 2015) and SIAMS (October 2016) and is oversubscribed on first choice applicants.

As Head of Year 9 you will be fully committed to ensuring all students in the year group are supported by effective pastoral systems to enable them to make outstanding academic progress within the wider context of their full personal, social and spiritual development. You will additionally deliver outstanding leadership and management of the Year team, and effective communication with parents and outside agencies, ensuring all new tutors are inducted into the school ethos & systems and leading in the delivery of the existing tutor time programme which covers PSHE and Citizenship. This role is ideally suited to a candidate who combines pastoral strengths with a contribution to driving consistency in whole school teaching and learning, and is an excellent development opportunity for a motivated and committed teacher who hopes to move to Senior Leadership at a later stage.

We offer: 

  • Exceptional professional development and career progression.
  • Positive working relationships at all levels.
  • A supportive Leadership Team.
  • A full-range of Trust services providing support and development.
  • Opportunity to gain experience within 4 different Trust schools with a common commitment to professional collaboration.

The successful candidate will have:

  • Some experience of managing or implementing pastoral systems and initiatives.
  • Knowledge of the requirements of the National Curriculum.
  • An understanding of the strategies required to motivate and enthuse all students across the ability range as part of a whole school approach to raising achievement.
  • An understanding of the processes and techniques required to assess, record and report students’ learning effectively.
  • Ability to be reflective and driven towards self-improvement.
  • A commitment to the ethos of the school.
