We can offer you the support and commitment from the Governing Body as you lead a dedicated and hard-working staff team. With the opportunity to focus on one key stage, our teaching staff are motivated, ambitious, accomplished and conscientious. You will be welcomed to a strong and loving school community, with caring and supportive parents, along with strong parish partnerships. Our children are well-behaved, friendly, confident, enthusiastic and enjoy learning - they are a real joy to us all.

We are looking for someone who:

  • Is a practising Catholic, committed to cherishing and supporting our school’s strong Catholic ethos.
  • Has proven leadership experience and interpersonal skills with the ability to lead, inspire and develop others.
  • Values and promotes strong partnerships with parents, parishes and the wider community.
  • Is an outstanding practitioner committed to our vision for every child at St Cuthbert Mayne to live life to the full and flourish academically, spiritually, emotionally, physically and socially.
