Do you have the passion and skills to be part of our school team, creating an inspiring and nurturing environment for our children? This is an exciting opportunity for a Deputy Headteacher to be part of something incredibly special.

The primary phase of Wren Academy opened in September 2015 with the Early Years Foundation Stage classes. Through the addition of a cohort of children each year, we have grown into a two-form entry primary school, joining our successful and outstanding secondary school. Located in the London Borough of Barnet, Wren Academy is sponsored by the Church of England and Berkhamsted School. In September 2021, we will have our first Year 6 group and our all through school will finally be complete.

We are seeking to appoint a dedicated, enthusiastic and creative Deputy Headteacher, who will support the Headteacher in providing professional leadership for Wren, which strives for outstanding achievements and continuous improvement, ensuring high quality education for every pupil in this inspirational and innovative school.

In September 2021 we will have our first Year 6 group and as such we need to ensure that their transition from primary to our secondary phase of the school is exciting and engaging. This will be one of the responsibilities of the Deputy Headteacher working with the class teachers and the secondary phase to think of innovative ways to ensure this transition is successful.

All staff are provided with laptops and iPads to use and all PPA time is covered by specialist teachers from the secondary phase of our All Through School. We have a strong consistent team of staff and wellbeing for all is a priority.

The successful candidates will:

  • Have excellent interpersonal skills with pupils, staff and parents.
  • Be able to enthuse, inspire and engage children.
  • Plan and deliver exciting lessons.
  • Be dedicated to raising standards for all children.
