Ref: 85 Date Posted: Monday 25 Sep 2023

Headteacher

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

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.

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.

DBS check required.

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

The Rt Rev Nick Baines - Anglican Bishop of Leeds

"We tried going it alone to find a CEO for our MAT but had only 2 applicants who didn't meet our requirements. We approached Emmaus and from the start their professionalism was reassuring."

Barry Leyland, Chair - Blessed Edward Bamber Catholic Multi Academy Trust

"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 had been cold called by a few other companies but chose Emmaus as it specialised in Church schools. We were impressed by Liam and his team coming to the school and burrowing in to what the school wanted and needed. He asked searching questions and we were satisfied this was the way forward. I had not been a fan of head hunters before, but I have to say this process and its result was a hugely better experience than going out on our own and was totally professional throughout."

Bridget Prentice, Chair of Governors - Trinity School, Lewisham

"We considered TES, 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

"We came across Emmaus by accident after our own attempts to recruit a Headteacher failed. We would not hesitate to engage them again to find a suitable candidate for a leadership position."

Michael Tennant - Chairman of the Board, St Edward's School

"I have no hesitation in commending Emmaus to any school that is seeking to appoint a Christian Headteacher. In particular, Emmaus’ ability to promote the school, assess the ethos of the school and communicate this within the networks of those who might be considered as possible candidates was invaluable."

Clive Purser, Chair of Governors, St Andrew's CE High School for Boys, Worthing

"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, Chair of Governors & Parish Priest, Archdiocese of Southwark
