Unique opportunity for an outstanding school leader

We are looking for an experienced, enthusiastic and inspiring school leader to lead our small rural school in North Warwickshire. We are seeking to appoint a person who is able to develop and lead a strong Christian vision and who fully understands the Christian distinctiveness of a Church of England school. We are therefore looking for a headteacher who will actively support and promote our Christian ethos in every aspect of school life.

We believe that success is found in who you are as well as what you do, and at all of our schools we aim to provide an outstanding education, supported by excellent pastoral care and high standards of behaviour, set within a distinctive Christian ethos. We want to equip our pupils with academic achievement, experiences and personal attributes to enable them to succeed in the next stage of their education.

Warton Nethersole’s C of E Primary School is part of the Birmingham Diocesan Multi-Academy Trust (BDMAT) and therefore will be supported by and connected with a network of Church of England schools within the region. The Trust was established in 2017 by Birmingham Diocesan Board of Education, which has a strong track record of providing excellent educational provision and achieving rapid school improvement across all phases. The trust currently has 16 schools, all primary, spread across three local authority areas;

Birmingham City (9 schools), Warwickshire (6 schools) and Solihull (1 school). In addition, we are building our first secondary school, Christ Church C of E Secondary Academy which is due to open in Yardley Wood in September 2021.

The vision of the Trust is to ensure pupils have ‘life in all its fullness’; providing an education that will offer a wide range of opportunities and experiences within a Christian framework.

Interviews are scheduled for Monday 16th March 2020 at the school. 

For informal enquiries, please contact BDMAT’s Chief Executive Officer, Christopher Mansell through his PA, Sheila Benbow who can be contacted at s.benbow@bdmatschools.com or telephone 0121 426 0449.
