Now Recruiting a Head of School (Designate)

It is with a sense of huge excitement and great pride, that we introduce the latest member of the John Taylor Multi Academy Trust family of schools.

Several years in the planning, we aim to incorporate many of the features of John Taylor High School that have become a hallmark of its success: challenging the most able, outstanding quality of subject-specific teaching, a taught curriculum of ‘gold standard’ qualifications, and an enrichment offer and pastoral system we believe is second to none.

You could be sharing in the excitement of school improvement if you think you’ve got the leadership qualities, vision and enthusiasm to take us from pre-opening to an ‘outstanding’ provider. You will be encouraged by a strong local governing body and an ambitious, forward-thinking MAT Board with a determination for excellence as you develop our proposals into reality.

If you are at the time in your career when you feel ready for such a challenge, we need to hear from you. Potential applicants are strongly encouraged to visit the school. Please either contact Mrs S Boyce, CEO’s PA to make an appointment (01283 247823) or email
