Graham School - A great school on a journey to outstanding
Graham School in Scarborough is currently going through a period of transformation that will dramatically improve the life chances of our students and bring the school out of special measures. The new senior team require an enthusiastic Deputy Headteacher and classroom practitioner who can lead, manage and inspire our teachers and staff to provide the very best classroom practice for the children in our care; dramatically improving the quality of teaching and learning and improving outcomes across the curriculum.
You must be able to demonstrate outstanding ability to engage and inspire students through high quality classroom practice and have experience of sharing and disseminating this practice to others in your school so that all subjects benefit and apply your strategies. You should be able to show how you have held staff to account through robust and clear systems and that you have experience of challenging and supporting teachers to bring about rapid improvements in their classrooms.
Senior leadership experience in teaching and learning is required, but above all we are seeking to recruit an enthusiastic and motivated practitioner who can inspire others to follow them in developing new models of classroom practice across the school and generate rapid improvements in student outcomes through the quality of their educational experience. Our children get one chance; our vision is to make it an excellent one.
Only the best practice will do for our children, many of which come from some of the most challenging backgrounds in the UK. As a result, you will be provided with first class professional development through national providers, a generous budget and the authority to develop your strategy to bring about change.
Initial accommodation will be provided for the first term to enable you to settle into the area with a generous resettlement allowance for the right candidate.
You will need to be willing to contribute to the holistic development of our students and to support them in preparing for their future. There will be significant challenges to overcome but with huge potential rewards to be gained. If you think you have what it takes to make a significant difference to children’s’ lives and the energy and enthusiasm to join us on our journey, get in touch for a discussion with the Headteacher and organise a visit to our school.
Do you have what it takes to make a positive contribution to improving the life chances of the children of Scarborough? If you have do you will be supported with high quality CPD, a generous relocation allowance and ongoing opportunities to grow and develop your skills. And above all you will work with a fantastic and willing staff and the best students.
