Are you the one who God has chosen to lead us forward in 2018?

All Hallows is an all-ability 11 -18 Catholic Voluntary Academy and Teaching School with a big heart and a national reputation for excellence. 

Our College has built sustainable school improvement on a passionate focus on teaching with a high value being placed on our young people’s personal development and spiritual well-being.

Working at All Hallows and within our Multi Academy Trust is an opportunity to join a progressive teacher-learning community, inspired by Christian values, which focuses on the art, craft and science of teaching, as a noble vocation, in a place where students enjoy learning.

Our new Principal will be attracted by this exciting opportunity in Catholic education, for there is much work yet to do in the areas of teaching, training and School to School support to name but a few. You will be joined in all your endeavours by an enthusiastic team of governors, trustees, staff and students that hum with common purpose to ‘Aspire not to have more but to be more’ (Mission Statement / Oscar Romero).

A practising Catholic with successful experience of leading on whole school improvement and managing change with demonstrable outcomes is essential.

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.

Closing date: Sunday 11th March at Midnight
Shortlisting: Monday 12th March
Interviews: Monday 19th (Eve) & Tuesday 20th March (All day)

"I have personal experience of the quality of service Emmaus provides, when I successfully applied for a Headship position through them. I always felt I could call up, get the ‘inside take’ on the school and ask any questions in complete confidence. The support and expert advice I received made the application process far less daunting and I would thoroughly recommend Emmaus to any Church School looking to appoint a key Leadership position."

Dan Pickard, Headteacher, The Bishop’s CE Primary School - Thetford

"We acknowledge warmly and appreciatively the specialised leadership service and experience Emmaus offers to our Church schools."

Andy Mash, Director of Education - Norwich Diocese

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

Bishop Nick Baines - Anglican Bishop of Leeds

"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

"Thank you for everything you did to successfully support our recruitment of an outstanding Headteacher for our Roman Catholic Non-Maintained Special School. 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, the very high standard of advertising of the post and the resulting candidate pool. I have no hesitation in recommending Emmaus to other schools."

Sue Collins - Director of Business Services, St Joseph's RC Specialist School and College

"Emmaus is good news! Through their expertise, professionalism and faith, Emmaus help us attract the talent so vital to the flourishing of our Church Schools."

Canon Derek Holbird, Former Director of Education - Guildford Diocese

"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

"Having previously struggled to recruit two Headteachers - for both a Primary and a Secondary school - Emmaus came to the rescue. Their expert advice and deep understanding of recruiting Headship positions in Catholic schools is invaluable, and I have no hesitation in recommending their knowhow and their values."

Fr David Gibbons, Director of Centre for Catholic Formation - Archdiocese of Southwark

"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, Deputy Director of Education - Archdiocese of Southwark

"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
