Kirklees Council are advertising this role on behalf of Kirkburton Middle School.

Following the retirement of our existing Headteacher, we are looking to recruit a new Headteacher to lead the school into the next phase of its development.

Kirkburton Middle School is a thriving, oversubscribed and well regarded school in Kirklees which takes pupils from the beginning of Year 6 to end of Year 8. We are part of The Mast Academy Trust whose values are rooted in collaboration and child centred decision making.

We are looking for someone with ambition and drive; resilience and emotional intelligence and the ability to inspire and motivate our people. You may be a senior leader in a Secondary school or a serving headteacher in a large primary school, but you must have a passion for cross-phase working and a commitment to the unique opportunities afforded by middle school education.

In return we can offer you:

  • The opportunity to work with fantastic pupils who are eager to learn.
  • Committed staff and a strong and supportive Governing Body.
  • Support from experienced headteachers and a committed and professional trust board.
  • A commitment to professional development opportunities.

We warmly welcome visits to the school and would be happy to discuss the post further with candidates who may be interested in applying. More information can be found in our Recruitment Pack.

Further details and Application Forms are available from Mrs Melanie Humphreys, Executive Administrator for The Mast Academy Trust, email mhumphreys@themast.co.uk

Alternatively, they may be downloaded from the Kirkburton Middle School website at Kirkburton Middle School/Vacancies

All completed applications should be emailed to mhumphreys@themast.co.uk by 12pm on Monday 30th September 2019.
