Ivy Education Trust is seeking to appoint an Assistant Headteacher who will have responsibility for the English faculty. Now is a really exciting time to join the leadership team at Teignmouth Community School, Exeter Road. We are a dynamic and progressive team, led by a newly appointed Headteacher with a proven track record of school improvement. As a team, we are determined to ensure that every student in our care has every opportunity to become the best version of themselves. In the pursuit of this we work hard but we laugh harder. If you are passionate about education, have a strong moral purpose and would like to join our team, we would love to hear from you.
The post holder will be responsible for effectively leading a knowledgeable and skilled team in order to raise student achievement and help foster a love of literature, language and communication skills for our pupils. Being a part of the Senior Leadership Team, the post holder will contribute towards the school improvement.
The Ivy Education Trust works closely with all schools within the Trust and beyond. The Ivy Education Trust celebrates the diversity of each of its schools and is founded upon the alignment of vision and values that we all commonly hold to secure the best outcomes for our pupils.
The name of our Trust is inspired by the story of Dr Ivy Williams. Born in Teignbridge (Newton Abbot), in 1877, she managed what we would wish for all the children and young people of Teignbridge and surrounding area that we serve in our schools by fulfilling her childhood dreams and ambitions.
On 10 May 1922 Dr Ivy Williams became the first woman to be called to the Bar (formally recognised as a qualified Barrister of Law) of England and Wales.
The story of Dr Ivy Williams reminds us of the famous quote from Michelangelo:
“The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.”
The Ivy Education Trust supports and challenges all members of our learning community to dream big, aim high, and achieve more than they ever thought was possible.
If you share these visions and aspirations, then we very much welcome your application for this post.
