The successful candidate will build on this success by promoting outstanding behaviour for learning and maximising the impact of our curriculum intent on all students. He/she will be able to make an impact from the outset, demonstrating a repertoire of strategies to foster behaviour and attitudes that maximise learning and enable students to become a force for good in society.
