 Headteacher – Stepney All Saints CofE Secondary School

L37 – L43 (£123,168 – £139,891)     

Stepney All Saints is an outstanding, inner-city Church of England School. We take pride in our ethos of academic ambition, exceptionally high standards of achievement and behaviour, our commitment to inclusion and respect for all. We are proud of the standing our school has in the local community and of the reputation it holds across London.

As a Church of England school we are open to students of all faiths and none. Our mission is to provide first class teaching, learning and a wide range of extra-curricular activities within a caring and supportive Christian environment.

Our current, exceptional, Headteacher is retiring at the end of this academic year and the Governors wish to appoint an inspirational Headteacher who has the vision and drive to lead the school community forward into the future from September 2024. We are looking for a strong leader and communicator to build on the school’s achievements and prepare the school for its future, along with the challenges of RAAC.

As a voluntary-aided school, Stepney All Saints is supported by the Portal Trust as its Trustees and owner of the site.

The school is fully committed to the values of equality and fairness and is an Equal Opportunities employer.

Telephone enquiries are welcomed on 0207 790 6712.

Visits to the school will be available for interested candidates on Tuesday 20 February from 10.45am and Thursday 22 February from 2.00pm. Tours of the school on the day of the interviews will not be possible.

The closing date for receipt of applications is 26th February 2024 at 5pm.

The school recognises that it is good practice to provide reimbursement of reasonable expenses incurred by all candidates attending for interview and that they are agreed with the school beforehand. Please contact HR for further details.

Stepney All Saints School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people in the school. In order to meet this responsibility, the school follows a rigorous selection process to discourage and screen out unsuitable applicants. Stepney All Saints requires all employees to undertake an enhanced DBS check. You are required, before appointment, to disclose any unspent conviction, cautions, reprimands or warnings under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975. Non-disclosure may lead to termination of employment. However, disclosure of a criminal background will not necessarily debar you from employment — this will depend upon the nature of the offence(s) and when they occurred.

We are a school actively committed to being anti-racist and we are united in our commitment to fight racism in all its forms.
