Stour Vale Academy Trust, the school’s Interim Executive Board and the Local Authority share a strong commitment to working together to support Northfield Road through the process of becoming a member of Stour Vale Academy Trust in June 2019. We are delighted to have recently appointed the Acting Headteacher as the new substantive Headteacher for Northfield Road.

The new Deputy Headteacher would take a lead role in supporting the Headteacher to raise standards of academic achievement, whilst developing a cohesive school community where children and staff flourish. This is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious and effective school leader.
