Headteacher

Salary: £Competitive to attract the right applicant
Location: Caddington, Nr Dunstable, Luton
Contract Type: Full Time
Contract Term: Permanent
Start Date: September 2018

Manshead CE Academy is a Church of England secondary Academy that serves girls and boys aged 11 – 18 years old within the neighbouring community of Dunstable, Luton.

Manshead faces significant challenges yet has enormous potential to become ‘outstanding’ in time. The school joined the newly formed Diocese of St Alban’s Multi-Academy Trust (DSAMAT is currently made up of 6 schools and growing) in April 2017 having previously been placed in Special Measures. DSAMAT has a strong school improvement capability that is already paying dividends and has, with the Site Trustees, plans for the development of the premises - all of which makes for a wonderful platform from which to drive rapid and sustainable progress.

We are seeking a strong and empowering Headteacher, with the desire and know-how to nurture a dynamic learning environment with an unrelenting focus on developing high aspirations and successful outcomes for all students and those from disadvantaged backgrounds in particular.

For an existing Principal/Head this could be the next big challenge you seek …or equally for an experienced Vice Principal/Deputy Head and still yet untapped potential.

Applications are sought from both practising Christians and individuals committed to actively supporting the Christian ethos of the academy.

If you believe you can provide outstanding leadership, which inspires and motivates others towards excellence and ensures the very best education for all our learners, then we would love to hear from you.

Closing: Monday 16 April at 5pm

Shortlisting: Thursday 19 April 2018

Interview day: Thursday 26 April 2016

In the first instance please call Liam Dowds, our Emmaus Leadership Advising Consultant who is assisting us with this assignment, in complete confidence on 01737 652 043 or ldowds@emmausleadership.me

Our Academy is an equal opportunities employer and committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.

"Emmaus brings a level of professionalism, seen in other industry sectors, to church schools’ recruitment."

The Rt Rev Nick Baines - Anglican Bishop of Leeds

"Thank you for everything you did to successfully support our recruitment of an outstanding Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher. Using Emmaus Leadership to manage the recruitment to the post was much debated and was the subject of intense scrutiny by our Governing Body who were somewhat reluctant to use a leadership recruitment specialist. However, their confidence was reinstated as a result of your professional approach, your insightful knowledge and the resulting candidate pool produced for both appointments. I have no hesitation in recommending Emmaus to other schools."

Annie Sutton - Executive Principal, St Joseph's RC Specialist School and College

"We have been working with Emmaus Leadership on a number of hard to fill leadership vacancies across the Diocese. All of our dealings have been extremely professional and the feedback from schools has been very positive. It has been somewhat refreshing to deal with a recruitment company that have a good understanding of the Catholic sector, the workings of a Diocese and the requirements of Foundation Governors in appointing senior leaders to our schools. Our experience of Emmaus Leadership has been very positive and I fully recommend their services."

Stephen Bryan, Former Interim Director of Education - Archdiocese of Southwark

"I want to thank everyone at Emmaus for your support in recruiting our new Headteacher. You ensured that we were able to ‘cast a wide net’ and have a number of high quality applications to shortlist from. It was a great outcome for us and one I do not think we would have achieved on our own. We will be sure to be in contact again."

Dave Cobb - School Business & Development Manager, Saint Cecilia's CE School, London

"I have no hesitation in commending Emmaus to any school which is seeking to appoint a Christian Head. My only regret is that we did not go to them for the first round of interviews that proved unsuccessful. It is an expensive option, but in the long run they are more than value for money. I am very thankful to God for the ministry of Emmaus, and I warmly commend them to you. In OFSTED terms, they are outstanding."

The Rt Rev Keith Sinclair - Anglican Bishop of Birkenhead

"Emmaus were instrumental in persuading me to apply for the post of Headteacher. I had seen the school advertising in the past but nothing inspired me to get in touch. Once Emmaus advertised I felt intrigued and keen to learn more about the school. I was supported throughout the whole process, which was a very personal and positive experience. I would highly recommend Emmaus to any school thinking of recruiting, and candidates considering registering. If my new school had not used Emmaus I probably wouldn’t have applied."

Hannah Walters, Headteacher, Platt CE Primary School - Kent

"…we also considered other external recruiters, but Emmaus were clear favourites in terms of their recruitment expertise and in-depth knowledge and appreciation of the catholic school’s sector."

Peter Giorgio, Director of Education, Nottingham Diocese

"We considered TES Prime, but the critical factor for us was that Emmaus are not only specialists in recruiting Headteachers, they are Christians focused exclusively on recruiting for Church Schools."

Canon Bob Baker, Chair of Governors,The Bishop’s CE School - Thetford

"Could we afford it? My belief, as Chair was that we couldn’t afford not to. Our pupils deserved and needed strong school leaders to be found and drawn to apply. Our success was down to using Emmaus and definitely money well spent."

Carry Lynott - Chair of Governors, Our Lady and St Brendan's Catholic Primary School, Bradford

"Thank you for all your support, advice and professionalism through out the long and complex process of our Head’s appointment. Having helped us appoint first time round it was unfortunate, due to personal circumstances, that our new Head had to subsequently withdraw post appointment. We were truly grateful for your service guarantee, which meant we incurred no further costs in appointing her replacement. Your unfailing support and advice at all times was greatly appreciated."

Nicholas van As, Chair of Personnel Committee - Coulsdon CE Primary School
