St Gregory's Catholic Primary School

September 2019

For a successful and suitably experienced candidate, there is the opportunity to appoint an Executive Head as an alternative with headship over 2 primary schools in the Trust including St Gregory’s.

St Gregory’s Catholic Primary School is a two form entry primary school with nearly 400 pupils and is located towards the North of Northampton. St Gregory’s joined the St Thomas of Canterbury Catholic Academies Trust in April 2016 and is one of three Catholic primary schools with strong links to the only Catholic Secondary School in Northamptonshire; all 4 schools work closely together within the Trust.

The school is seeking a practising and dedicated Roman Catholic Headteacher who is really inspired by the journey so far, someone who embraces the potential that this charming school has to offer and recognises that this role may well be the defining moment of their career.

With the support of the Trust, St Gregory’s is on an incredible journey of school improvement. Through a relentless focus on end of Key Stage outcomes, a strong emphasis on staff development and additional day-to-day support with financial and operational management, we have built the foundations for a bright and exciting future for this school.

What the school needs now is an inspirational leader who has the energy, drive and ambition, committed to continuing the journey through to ‘good’ and beyond; someone that really takes on the school as their own, embodying the values and really committing to the community for at least the next five years.

This would be the ideal opportunity for an experienced deputy who is seeking their first headship, or someone looking for their next exciting leadership challenge in a growing and expanding Trust.
