Deputy Headteacher

Leadership Scale – L21 to L25  £70,445 - £77,361

Start Date – September 2020


Redden Court School, a place where “Pupils are enthusiastic about coming to school to learn.” (OFSTED SEPTEMBER 2016)


Would you like to move your career forward in a friendly environment with eager students and support from an experienced leadership team, in one of the best mixed comprehensive schools for 11-16 year olds in our Local Authority.  We are an oversubscribed extremely popular school serving the communities of Harold Wood and Ardleigh Green. 

Our staff turnover is low because teachers come to us and realise our grass is indeed greener. We invest in our staff to help them to become the best possible teachers they can be. There are excellent opportunities for people who work hard. Effort is often recognised in career development. Many who came to us as NQTs now have substantial leadership roles. Our CPD programme and collegiate approach are highly effective. Staff morale is high and so is that of our students and their community. 

Our school mantra is "Committed to Success for All."  That includes our staff and we want the very best for our students. In our most recent OFSTED they said we “have created an inclusive community where pupils and staff relate well to each other. The school is focused on working with families to raise aspirations for pupils.” 

We seek a Deputy Headteacher to join us from September 2020. Redden Court School is a happy, hardworking and thriving school which has exceeded expectations in so many areas for a decade. Our new Headteacher joins us at Easter 2020 under the successful Executive Headteacher of the Success for All Educational Trust. 

This exceptional opportunity provides a very strong foundation for an aspiring Deputy Headteacher within our leadership team. It will offer the successful applicant opportunities to shape a successful, growing school, which is currently expanding. 

At Redden Court School, we have a passionately holistic approach to providing the children we serve the best possible education to give them what they need for successful and happy futures. We are committed to providing an excellent education that develops ambition, raises expectations and delivers excellent results. Our students are helped to become the best versions of themselves as people who know they must work hard and who have responsibilities. At Redden Court School, academic success must be matched by the development of character and conscience. 

We have very strong relationships with parents and carers, who play an active role in the school's vision and values. We genuinely believe in the importance of working in partnership with our staff, parents/carers, students and all stakeholders as we know this approach has reaped dividends for us.

We are looking for an exceptionally inspiring, extremely motivated, hardworking leader with a fine track record of developing others as well as themselves and who is still an excellent teacher themselves.  We want someone who is caring, forward-thinking and able to work with everyone in a community that is hardworking, totally committed and loyal. Candidates with a background in curriculum design and developing teaching and learning would be desirable but not essential. 

The successful person will inherit an experienced and hardworking team of professionals who will continue to do all they can to drive the school forward.
