Assistant Headteacher
January 2024 Salary: Leadership Scale 1-5
Ideally Full time, although Part time will be considered
Permanent or fixed term – to be discussed


The Assistant Headteacher will take a central role in assisting the Headteacher, Deputy Headteacher and Governing Body to develop our school, in accordance with our shared values and nurturing ethos.


So, are you an experienced Primary Teacher seeking to step up into Leadership?

Perhaps you're already a Leader and want to further your career as an Assistant Headteacher?


We are keen to meet someone who is ready to lead our children in KS2 alongside a reduced teaching commitment for at least the first year, and to build further on our curriculum and assessment mapping and development, an interest in Maths would be great but not essential.

You will work closely with other school leaders to lead the Primary School, cohesively. At St John’s, our children really are at the heart of everything we do. They are happy, friendly, interested and interesting!  We are committed to building on our dedicated and dynamic staff team who work hard and aim high, all within a context of love and care.


Applications will be reviewed on receipt.
