To start: September 2021

We are looking to appoint a Vice Principal to join the Academy, one of the highest performing schools in the region. This VP role is pivotal in the development of the Academy as part of the Enrich Learning Trust and becomes available because of the promotion to Headship of the current postholder, an example of the quality of the senior team at Wymondham High.

The Academy is increasingly popular within the local community, having increased the number of pupils on roll by over 200 in the last 3 years. The appointment of a Vice Principal – Outcomes will support our next step of development. The successful applicant will have a wide remit in terms of strategic leadership and management, fundamental to their role will be delivering our curriculum and outcomes strategies, supported by a team of Assistant Principals.

The core of our success has been demanding and achieving high expectations, promoting our values of determination, responsibility and humility, with honest and open communication at all levels. We believe in a consistent approach to all we do – we have seen the benefits of this and will expect the successful candidate to have highly visible professional practice.

Well-motivated pupils/students, commitment to weekly professional development, investment in campus facilities and strong support from the Principal are amongst the drivers in our success. Being part of one the strongest schools in the area would be a great opportunity for someone seeking to move forward in their career.
