Assistant Principal – Curriculum, Teaching and Learning

Start date: 1st September 2019

Contract Term: Permanent

Salary: L10 (£49,937) - L14 (£55,064)

Owing to expansion we are seeking to recruit an Assistant Principal to Avon Valley College, a fast improving 11-18 College within the Salisbury Plains Trust, for September 2019.

The successful applicant will have a belief in the power of strong leadership, ambitious career goals, and a drive toward continual self-improvement.

Our vision is to create an environment where teachers can plan and deliver the best lessons they can, unimpeded by disruption. This vision can only be realised by a 100% commitment and buy-in from all teachers to the ethos of the Academy. We believe that consistent routines, clear boundaries, and high expectations facilitate creative and engaging lessons. Leaders must believe in that ethos and hold each other to account for upholding the standards that support it.

Our values of honesty, fairness and endeavour feel real, and mutual respect is apparent in strong relationships between pupils, parents and staff. We are ambitious for our students and for our school.

About us

Set in beautiful grounds and surrounding countryside in South Wiltshire, Avon Valley College is within easy reach of the spectacular Jurassic coast, the New Forest, and the historic cathedral city of Salisbury.

Avon Valley College is much valued by its mixed civilian-military community. Owing to the rebasing of troops from Germany, we are in the process of a phased building programme to refresh and renew the entire estate, starting with a brand-new purpose built 18-classroom block for the Arts and ICT, a state-of-the-art gym and specialist Sports Performance Facility.

The school has undergone a significant period of positive change in the last year and standards in all areas are now high. Results in 2018 were significantly better than in 2017 across the board, making it one of the most improved schools in Wiltshire. During 2018-19, there has been a significant investment in improving quality of practice and developing leadership, including National Professional Qualifications, coaching, and a number of bespoke sessions led by nationally recognised speakers. We also place a high value on staff wellbeing with regular after school sessions including yoga, mindfulness, sports competitions, bake-offs and much more to come!
