As part of the rebasing of troops from Germany, all local schools will see a rise in population between now and 2020. Owing to the doubling in size from 600 to 1150-1200, Wiltshire Council is in the process of a phased building programme to bring 18 new purpose built classrooms to Avon Valley College. The Trust intends that phased programme to continue in order to refresh and renew the entire estate.

The school has undergone a significant period of change in the last year and standards are now rapidly climbing. Results this year were significantly better than in 2017 across the board. 2018-19 is a critical year in our journey, and we are looking for strong leadership to capitalise on the momentum we have built.

The successful applicant will have a good understanding of the cultural reforms underway, the need for accountability at all levels, and the ability to inspire great teaching. He/she will be able to demonstrate significant impact in a leadership area and be seeking a fresh challenge in a school that is in the process of transformation.
