We are looking for a kind, caring and inspirational Headteacher for this wonderful school which is highly ambitious for its pupils, ensuring they go to ‘Wickhambrook and beyond.’ The school is a key part of the village and local community, linking to local events and groups.

The school is a mixture of Victorian frontage with five classrooms and a new separate two class block next to the original school building, providing 7 classrooms in all. It is set in generous grounds and beautifully placed within the Suffolk countryside.

Its pupils love the breadth of the curriculum offer, are keen to take part in as many sporting events as possible and they are looking for a Headteacher who is ambitious for them, can motivate them to excel and has high expectations for their success.

You will either be a current, serving Headteacher or senior leader looking for an exciting new challenge. You will have a solid understanding of the requirements of the new Ofsted framework and will be excited by the opportunity to further develop the school’s curriculum offer.

This is a rare opportunity to join a collaborative, forward thinking Academy trust of 30 schools (17 primary) where Headteachers form an integral part of our trust leadership team. This role is perfect for an aspiring leader who deserves the support, CPD and career development on offer and in return will stop at nothing to ensure our pupils achieve results plus.

All members of the Unity Schools Partnership staff subscribe to a set of shared values, principles and operational processes to ensure quality education for all our young people. Our central belief is that every young life is special – open to possibility, gifted with the potential to change the world for the better. Our ambition is to unlock the potential of all children, remove the barriers to aspiration and ensure that all our children succeed.
