Head of School

Our Lady of Walsingham Catholic Multi Academy Trust
St Louis Catholic Academy
Head of School L8-L14

Full Time - Required for September 2020

St Louis Catholic Academy is located in Newmarket and has an excellent reputation locally for its academic achievement, caring ethos and high expectations. We were a founding member of Our Lady of Walsingham Catholic Multi Academy Trust in November 2016 which will grow to include 9 primary schools and 2 high schools by September 2020. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to shape both the School and contribute to the ongoing future success of the Trust.

Each school within our Trust is distinctive, because our entire educational policy and approach is inspired by and flows from the vision of life, which is enshrined in our faith tradition and our service to the children in our care. Our Catholic faith perspective is not simply an added extra but it is integral to the whole life of the school and permeates every aspect of the curriculum.

St Louis is a highly successful and over-subscribed school with a nursery, rated Good by OFSTED (November 2019) and we are looking for a practicing Catholic leader to complete our journey to Outstanding. This is an exciting opportunity for someone who wishes to develop their career rapidly as the successful candidate will be joining a strong Multi Academy Trust highly committed to staff development and Catholic school leadership.

The Trust is seeking to appoint a well-qualified, ethos driven and capable senior leader to take the helm of our happy and highly ambitious school. We welcome applications from candidates with a strong track record in school leadership at all levels and with the ambition to lead a school of their own with the support of an established executive team.

Applications are sought from practising Catholics who will further develop our Catholic ethos.
