Head of Sixth Form Vacancy
Leadership Pay Range 4-8
The Meadows School provides education for young people with special educational needs and disabilities from the ages of 11 to 19. Our vision is to create learning environments where every young person is engaged, can be enterprising and successful in their community, both today and in their future adult life. We aim to create a hub of inspiration from which, students and staff develop their independence, skills, expertise, interests and vocations.
Following the retirement of our long serving and dedicated Assistant Headteacher, who has held responsibility for the Sixth Form, The Meadows School is looking to appoint a dynamic and passionate Head of Sixth Form from September 2021. We are looking for a highly effective teacher, who will continue to teach and inspire students, acting as a model for others, whilst also leading and managing the Sixth Form, maintaining and developing the high standards expected at The Meadows.
The Meadows School provides education to over 125 students and over a third of this population are within the Sixth Form. The school has strong links with local colleges and employers and achieves excellent outcomes in terms of destinations and preparation for adulthood.
This is an exciting time to join the school and lead the Sixth Form team. The School is constantly improving thanks to an exceptional team of teachers and support staff. The school has developed an effective partnership with its feeder primary, Springfield School, making the best use of resources and providing an enhanced level of support to families. The school is also part of the Manor Hall Academy Trust. A special school Academy Trust consisting of 10 specialist schools from across, Staffordshire, the Midlands and soon the North West. The Trust works on a collaborative model, ensuring that every school gets the most from being a member.
This is an exciting opportunity for an aspiring school or college leader or an experienced leader seeking future career progression within a successful Trust.
