Located on the stunning Jurassic Coast and with the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty close by, Exmouth Community College is one of the largest secondary schools in the country with over 2200 students.
The College is seeking an outstanding, inspirational and dynamic leader to take on the role of Assistant Principal. This offers a unique opportunity for an ambitious, creative and enthusiastic individual to lead a dedicated team of staff committed to get the very best education for our students within the context of the whole College vision.
The College is at a very exciting time in its development and you will be joining an experienced Senior Leadership Team who are exceptionally ambitious for both the students within Exmouth and the College as a whole.
The principal purpose of the role will be to assist in raising standards across Post 16 and incorporate skills including intervention with students, effective approaches to assessment, curriculum development and quality assurance. The role offers the opportunity to work across a range of areas and alongside other key staff within the College.
As one of the largest schools in the South West, this role presents an excellent opportunity to have a large impact on the development of both students and the College as a whole. We also have one of the largest school Sixth Forms in the South West, providing a very wide range of academic and vocational courses at Level 2 and Level 3. Performance within Post 16 is good and Ofsted have recently commented very favourably on our provision in this area. Post-16 students, and most teaching, is based within its own large block which also contains a Post-16 Café, Post-16 reception including administration support with office space and a large social area for students. There are two study areas a short distance away with more specialist teaching taking place in classrooms across the site. The size of our Sixth Form enables us to provide a very broad curriculum offer which includes some Level 2 bridging units in Health and Social Care or Media as well as a wide range of Level 3 Advanced Level and vocational courses from Criminology to Further Mathematics to Performing Arts.
This appointment is very important to the College and is key to our continuing school improvement plan.

We believe that high quality teaching and learning is central to school improvement and wish to provide staff with development opportunities within, and beyond our College, to ensure our students receive consistently high quality teaching.
