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 schools in our Local Authority? We are oversubscribed, serve Harold Wood well and we are only twenty minutes from the heart of London.

Our staff turnover is low because they come to us and realise our grass is indeed greener. We invest in our staff to help them to become the best 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. OFSTED recently 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 an inspiring and motivated Pastoral Head of Year to join us September 2020. We want someone who is caring, forward-thinking and able to work with everyone in the community. Redden Court School is a happy, hardworking and thriving school which has exceeded expectations in so many areas for a decade. Our new Headteacher joined us at Easter 2020 under the successful Executive Headteacher of the Success for All Educational Trust. 

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.

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. 

Given the unique time we are operating in at the moment we are unable to offer visits to the site before applying. However, you can contact Mr K Ward, Assistant Head Pastoral, on kward@reddencourtcloud.co.uk to arrange an informal conversation.

A further allowance may be available for a candidate with suitable experience.
