Vacancy Description

The Campion School

A Catholic Science Academy

Wingletye Lane



RM11 3BX


Salary: Leadership Spine Points 32-41 (Group 7)

To commence September 2022

The Governors invite applications for the post of Headteacher at The Campion School from September 2022, owing to the retirement of the current Headmaster.

We are excited by the prospect of being able to welcome a new leader into our community, able to build on an ethos of living as men and women for others inspired by the Gospel values.

We have strong and proud traditions as a mixed ability School which looks to offer its pupils a variety of academic, spiritual, sporting, musical, drama, social and community opportunities throughout their school lives. Achievements are celebrated at every level and an aspiring ethos drives students and staff. GCSE and A Level performance continue to excel and consistently high proportions of students leave the School for university study, including impressive numbers of Oxbridge applicants.

The School had a very positive Section 8 Ofsted Inspection on 24/25 November 2021 and we look forward to publishing the finalised report once available, expected to be in late January 2022. Details of previous Ofsted and Brentwood Diocesan Inspections can be found on the School’s website.

The successful applicant will build on the School’s aspirational approach to all of its endeavours and move forward with new and fresh perspectives and experiences which will further shape and develop the educational opportunities and experiences of Campion students and staff. 

The School embraces its responsibilities within its wider community. It fosters a strong sense of civic awareness within students and staff which can be seen in the variety of activities undertaken by them, ranging from nationally recognised charitable fund raising campaigns to distribution of local food parcels, annual Christmas Senior Citizens’ parties to feeder school mini Olympics - striving to make practical differences to people’s lives. We would like the successful applicant to clearly lead in this sphere too as we live as men and women for others as a community.

It is our expectation that the successful applicant will lead the School in a way that shows strategic and creative vision and communicate in a way that motivates and empowers students and staff.

The Campion School is a very popular Catholic Academy Trust School situated in the London Borough of Havering to the east of London within the Brentwood Diocese. The School’s intake is enriched by students from a wide variety of cultural and ethnic backgrounds - all boys for Years 7 - 11 with a mixed Sixth Form, with applications for both Year 7 and Sixth Form entry heavily over-subscribed with 1210 pupils on the School roll.

The School became an Academy Trust in 2011 and has worked hard since its conversion to establish firm financial foundations including maximising the local community’s use of its premises. Please see the School’s annual report and accounts.

Consideration will be given to relocation assistance for the successful candidate.
