Assistant Principal

We wish to recruit an Assistant Principal for Student Experience including Learning.

We are looking for a leader who is ambitious, innovative and forward thinking. We are on a rapid improvement journey and we are looking for a senior leader who demonstrates a resolute determination in all that they do.

Development of Teaching and Learning is central to all of our roles. In addition to improving the progress students are making, we are looking for an individual who can support our drive in relationship to the Student Experience.

It is an exciting time to be considering joining The Ferrers School. The School is part of the successful and expanding Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust, a group of primary and secondary schools located between Stamford and Cambridge along the A1 - A14 corridor. All the schools are growing and there is a need to develop capacity, expertise and excellence in our staff body.
The Ferrers School offers opportunities to become part of a team of staff who are making a real difference to the students they teach. CMAT, which was ranked 5th across all Multi Academy Trusts nationally in 2017 in terms of student progress, is a success story that continues to grow.

CMAT is also driven by our ability to adapt to the changing educational landscape led by determined staff who bring our academies alive with their enthusiastic personalities, unshakeable work ethic and their commitment to delivering exceptional learning experiences for our children. What makes The Ferrers School, and the Trust as a whole, different is that we know how to nurture and bring out the very best in our talented staff.

What we can offer you:
• a philosophy of 100% achievement and inclusion
• a commitment to extending the boundaries of learning enabling all young people to become well- rounded individuals
• a purposeful and caring learning environment, where every individual is known, valued and supported
• motivated and engaged students, and ambitious, dedicated and professional staff
