Psychology is our most popular subject at Post 16, with numbers rising each year. We require an ambitious Head of Psychology who will lead and develop the subject, cementing psychology as a key part of our Post 16 offer. This is an exciting new role, perfect for an experienced Head of Psychology, or an expert teacher of psychology who wants to take their first steps into subject leadership.
This is a permanent role starting 1st September 2022.
For the right person this will be a career-defining role. It will suit an accomplished school leader who has a detailed understanding of how to lead school improvement and embed long-term, sustainable good practice into the day-to-day operations of a school. It’s about getting the best from others by setting a definitive sense of purpose and direction, backed up by clarity of accountability and expectations.
Our new Head will be a values-driven person who instinctively innovates from a bedrock of SEN expertise to mine solutions from complex problems, order from disorder (but comfortable in chaos!).
They will be courageous champions of children and families; they will know and understand the landscape of SEN and special schools.
They will have neuroscience embedded in their day-to-day practice and a sharp eye for advances in the specialist methodologies associated with special school learning.
You don’t need to be ‘out-of-the-box’ ready but up for a challenge and eager to push the boundaries.
If your curiosity is piqued by this once-in-a-career opportunity, we would love to hear from you.
