Negotiable for the right candidate. Relocation package available.

January or Easter 2023

We have an exciting opportunity for an energetic and highly ambitious colleague to become the new Principal at The Grange Academy. The vacancy has arisen due to the previous post holder taking up an appointment at another of the Trust's schools. The successful candidate will build on the successes of this unique school in our Trust, taking it to the next stage of its development.

We are committed to high quality professional development within the Wade Deacon Trust and are proud of the strong team we have built across our schools.  Our Principals, leaders, teachers and support staff work together to develop expertise, share good practice and solve problems. Collaboration across our schools is central to our success.

The Grange is an all-through school and as such applications from both Primary and Secondary phase specialists are equally welcome.  This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced, exceptional Principal or outstanding Vice Principal to drive forward a large and thriving school. Our new Principal will very quickly become part of the Wade Deacon Trust family and contribute to our strategic improvement.

We pride ourselves on high expectations, a commitment to ensuring pupil progress and high­ quality teaching and learning. You will share these values and be able to enthuse and motivate our pupils with your passion and creativity, presence, and personality. You will be ambitious and will embrace being part of moving our school and trust forward.
