Hadrian Learning Trust, comprising Hexham Middle School (HMS) and Queen Elizabeth High School (QEHS), wishes to appoint an Assistant Headteacher to lead the approach to standards, support and inclusion at our middle school. HMS is a large and flourishing middle school set in the historical market town of Hexham and is co-located with QEHS on a purpose-built site with brand new school buildings with state-of-the-art learning facilities. We cherish the strong partnerships that exist between pupils, parents/carers, staff and the local community making this a successful, friendly and welcoming school.  Pupils at Hexham Middle School have an eagerness to learn and achieve very well academically.

We are seeking an inspirational and dynamic Assistant Headteacher to work closely with the Head of School to lead day-to-day life at HMS. We are looking for a driven, enthusiastic professional who places pupil success at the heart of what they do. The Assistant Headteacher is responsible for shaping our pupils to be respectful young people who have a strong engagement in their education and personal development and who have high aspirations for themselves and their futures. There is much that is already very good at our schools: confident, well-behaved learners, dedicated, loyal staff and supportive parents. However, we are always seeking to improve and want you to help take us to the next level.

As Assistant Headteacher, you will have a wide-reaching remit of responsibility and will:

As the school’s SENDCo, you will be ambitious for the success of pupils with additional needs and will be committed to the undertaking of the National Award for SENDCos.

As an Assistant Headteacher with us, you will be part of a friendly, supportive and dedicated team of senior leaders. We are looking for applications from hard-working, conscientious, creative individuals who have a track record of using their initiative to design and implement strategies to secure continual improvement. We are particularly keen to hear from those who are strong teachers themselves and have a real interest in leading pastoral care and SEND support based on a sound understanding of the latest academic research into what works.

We pride ourselves on the care we give the children at HMS and you will be at the forefront of pastoral care, wider pupil support and inclusion.  You will work with children and their parents/carers to build strong, positive relationships to enable all children to fulfil their potential. You will be ambitious for the success of all learners and will establish an environment where high expectations are embedded. You will support vulnerable learners, each with individual needs, to learn, achieve and grow during their middle school years.

We place a high value on our activity programme beyond the classroom and are proud of the many and varied enriching activities that form part of our educational offer. We have high expectations of behaviour and attitudes and strive to enhance the personal development of our pupils through a well-sequenced curriculum experience. We invest strongly in our teachers’ professional development and the successful applicant will be well-supported to become the best they can be.
