Sole Deputy Headteacher – Pensby High School, Heswall, Nr Birkenhead, Wirral

Posted 3 months ago

Care - Respect - Imagine

Pensby High School is an 11-16 co-educational and non-selective secondary school; in a highly selective local authority. Students’ outcomes place our school in the top 10% of similar schools in England in 2019 and we were in the top third of all schools in England for progress, despite a third of all students in the local authority attending selective schools in 2019. As a consequence we are seeing a rapid growth in the number of students across both key stage 3 and 4, with parents and students increasingly seeing the school as their first choice.

Following the retirement of the current Deputy Headteacher after 19 years successful service in the role, we are seeking to appoint a new Deputy Headteacher who is highly ambitious for all of our students.

This post is an exceptional opportunity for an ambitious Assistant or Deputy Headteacher to join the Headteacher and a highly motivated Senior Leadership Team and staff, as they  strive to ensure the children in their care leave the school as highly qualified, confident and articulate young adults.

If you believe you can provide outstanding leadership, which inspires and motivates others towards excellence and ensures the very best education for all our students, then we would love to hear from you.

In the first instance please contact Liam Dowds, our Finding Heads Advising Consultant who is assisting us with this assignment, in complete confidence on 01737 652 043 or . Candidate pack available on request.
