The Winsford Academy is a co-educational 11 – 16 secondary school and part of a ten school multi-academy trust. It is a fully inclusive comprehensive school which was established by the amalgamation of two predecessor schools. We consider ourselves privileged to help to shape young lives in our community and we take the responsibility very seriously.
We are looking for a leader with the passion, drive and energy to build on the success of the current Principal who has been promoted to a new Headship.
The school operates from a purpose built £20M site which opened in September 2013. After four years of transition, with a significant programme of rightsizing and budget rebalancing, the Governors, staff and Trust have created a stable school with much improved outcomes.
The challenge now is to lead the school to the level of academic achievement and attainment that its pupils deserve. The school is rated currently as ‘Good’, a judgement secured after two years of sponsorship by the Fallibroome Trust. The popularity of the school is reflected in the oversubscription of year 7 for the past two years.
The Academy aspires to become a focal point for the economic and cultural regeneration of Winsford and you will find a deeply committed community that will respond enthusiastically to the opportunities your leadership will bring. Experience of building parental and community engagement is a key skill you will need.
We have created a welcoming and purposeful environment with relationships built on mutual respect. We have an exceptionally strong pastoral team underpinning our academic drive to ensure our young people feel supported, cared for and guided to achieve their potential.
We are delighted to be the partner school in a multi-million pound sports complex at Knight’s Grange in Winsford. This brings opportunities to our students in sports, public services, health & social care and catering & hospitality which are unparalleled to any other high school setting.
What we are looking for:
In return you can expect:
This will be a truly rewarding experience for the right candidate offering the opportunity to make a significant impact and real difference as the Academy moves into its next phase of development.
