Headteacher - St Mary's CE Primary Finchley


Salary: £Competitive to attract the right candidate
Location: Finchley, London N3
Contract Type: Full Time
Contract Term: Permanent
Start Date: September 2015

We are an over-subscribed, two-form entry church school which is blessed in many ways and we are offering the right applicant an exciting opportunity to lead us into a bright future.


Following the retirement of the existing post-holder we are seeking a new Headteacher with the vision and ability to lead, manage and inspire the school community in its growth to become a centre of excellence with a distinct Christian ethos. We have some challenges but want you to work to retain our outstanding Ofsted and SIAMS judgements and provide a dynamic learning environment with high aspirations and successful outcomes for the children.


All the usual qualifications and rules apply and in return you will be working with happy, friendly children from many different backgrounds who are eager to learn; well-motivated, compassionate staff who work hard to deliver an education which is ‘bringing learning to life’; and dedicated governors committed to ensuring the school continues to progress.


Alongside all these benefits you will also enjoy strong support from our two sponsoring Church of England parishes and be able to take advantage of leadership opportunities within the family of LDBS schools and the London Borough of Barnet.


If you think this person is you, then we would love to hear from you.

Closing date: Sunday 15th March 2015 at 5pm
