Can you lead and inspire colleagues to achieve the very best results for our students?

Are you an experienced leader with outstanding outcomes looking for a new challenge within an exciting, innovative and supportive school?

We are looking for ambitious, talented and aspirational leaders who are highly motivated, forward-thinking and creative in their approach to Teaching, Learning, Continual Professional Development, Achievement and Assessment to join our Leadership Team.

Join our friendly, thriving and supportive staff team at Lyndon, and you will be in a school where (as reported by OfSTED) ‘Leaders know their school well….their actions to improve the school are effective. Leaders think carefully about pupils’ welfare, take an innovative approach to make sure that they support pupils effectively, (and) have designed a coherent and broad curriculum…as a result, pupils’ progress at key stage 3 is strong’.

Lyndon is part of Summit Learning Trust comprising Lyndon itself, Ninestiles School, Cockshut Hill School four primary schools and the Sixth Form College Solihull. The leadership team of Lyndon is progressive and has the vision, drive and support to lead the school on a journey of excellence, with staff that have a passion for teaching and learning. Join us and you will be part of an improving school with a strong team ethos.

At Lyndon, we believe in working collaboratively, sharing ideas and supporting each other to achieve joint success. As part of the Summit Learning Trust, we share a collective belief that our students should benefit from a provision and experience that both inspires and develops a new generation of young people that can meet the demands of life in the

21st century. As such, you should be able to teach across the ability range for KS3 and KS4 but also have an unequivocal desire to develop pedagogy and practice both at Lyndon and across the Trust.

We welcome applications from middle leaders who can demonstrate their passion and expertise in supporting students to achieve their full potential across all areas of the curriculum.
