Headteacher

Following eighteen years of dedicated service, the retirement of our current Headteacher presents an exciting opportunity to join the academy. The governing body expects the new Headteacher will continue to foster the growth of the academy’s ethos and strategic vision.

As an academy that is continually moving forward and raising the bar it is expected that the new Headteacher will show strong leadership skills and manage a team of highly motivated and enthusiastic staff, to ensure the needs of our students are met and provided with the best education.

 Worden is committed to promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment. The successful applicant will need to undertake an enhanced DBS disclosure and appointment will be subject to receipt of suitable references, qualifications and identity checks.
