Deputy Headteacher – Whole School Curriculum & Quality Assurance

Deputy Headteacher – Whole School Curriculum & Quality Assurance

Salary Range: L21 – L25 (£77,195 - £85,146)

Start Date: 1st January 2025

The Governing Board at St Gregory’s Catholic High School is seeking to appoint a Deputy Headteacher following the successful promotion of the current post holder to headship. This post is for an outstanding candidate who is a practising Catholic with a successful track record of school improvement and a vision that matches our ambition for all children to realise their maximum potential.

St Gregory’s is at the heart of the Warrington Parishes within the Deanery of Warrington and Widnes situated in an area of substantial growth next to all of the key motorway routes in the North West. We take pride in our relationship with the local community, partner primary schools and our partnerships within the archdiocese.

Our school has been on an exciting journey of substantial growth and success over the past eight years. Our PAN has increased from 192 to 240 per year group and we are now well oversubscribed with a waiting list for admissions. A new building project which has seen the addition of a new teaching block including a STEM area, a new chapel and a new sports hall, is now complete and well established.

In February 2019, St Gregory’s was graded as ‘Outstanding’ by Liverpool Archdiocese under Section 48. In November 2019, Ofsted inspected our school under the new inspection framework and graded the school as ‘Good’ in every area.

Behaviour and Attendance is excellent at St Gregory’s and our community thrives on respectful and positive relationships between our staff and our pupils. Our parent body is extremely supportive and works in positive partnership with the school community. Academic outcomes are very strong and highly competitive nationally with all subjects performing above the national averages. We are proud that all of our pupils go on to successfully study at college and university or attain apprenticeships when they leave our school.

We are now relishing the challenge of continuing our successful journey towards providing an outstanding whole school provision. Your qualities will include being an outstanding communicator, demonstrating commitment and resilience in the face of challenges and showing passion and an ambition for all children. You will lead by example and be a team player.

You will become part of an experienced and hardworking senior team that will consist of the headteacher, two deputy headteachers (including this post) and four assistant headteachers. We also have an excellent finance director who is part of the senior team and two additional associate assistant headteachers.

You will need to demonstrate a successful track record of senior leadership experience and will either be an assistant headteacher or an existing and successful deputy headteacher at your current school who is looking for a fresh challenge and a different school context to work in. St Gregory’s will provide a very strong platform to move on to successful headship if that is a route you wish to take in the future.

As the Deputy headteacher for Whole School Curriculum & Quality Assurance, your key responsibilities will be:

· Devising and leading on a strategic approach to ensure the highest standards of learning and achievement for our pupils

· Whole school quality assurance and monitoring of academic standards

· Overseeing strategic leadership of the subject leaders and academic staff

· Ensuring the best CPD is in place for our staff members across the school

Opportunity to complete the NPQH will be available as will the opportunity to work with our wider network of partnership schools.

Tours of the school and meetings / phone calls with the Headteacher are warmly welcomed and will be treated with the strictest of confidentiality. Please email the Head teacher’s PA Mrs Hutton (shutton@stgregoryshigh.com) to arrange a visit / discussion.

This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. The successful applicant will be expected to undertake a criminal record check via the DBS.

Online checks of shortlisted candidates may be obtained which forms part of our Safer Recruitment procedures and KCSIE Guidance.
