‘This school is a truly special place. Pupils flourish here’ Ofsted March 2022.

Is your perception that, as a boys’ grammar school, we will be overly traditional, elitist and purely an exam factory? Think again! If you love the art of teaching and want to work in a school where you can take risks in how you teach in order to develop your craft then Lawrence Sheriff School may well be the place for you.

Lawrence Sheriff School is an outstanding boys’ grammar school of approximately 1140 students, around 425 of whom are in our coeducational sixth form. As a National Teaching School, we have played a significant role in initial teacher training and continuous professional development across the region. Our Teaching School Hub status also enables us to offer all staff varied and interesting opportunities to enhance their practice. We have recently been designated as one of only fifteen national MFL Hubs.

Are you an ambitious and successful Senior Leader ready to take on your next challenge? We are looking to appoint an energetic and committed Deputy Headteacher, who has a desire to work with and bring out the best in others, and who will further develop a school culture that is built on success. The successful candidate will take the lead in ensuring we safeguard our students, provide outstanding pastoral care, and make certain that the behaviour and attitudes of our students are exemplary.

Please contact Mrs Lorraine Batchelor on if you would like to discuss the role with Teresa Mpofu, Headteacher, or if you would like to arrange a visit to the school. Please note that the school will be closed for half-term from 12th February 2024 to 16th February 2024.
