Principal: Mrs Victoria Musgrave

Vice Principal

Whole School Improvement

Scale L21-L25

(for April 2013 or September 2013)

‘Students’ personal development is good and their contribution to the school and wider community is outstanding’.

‘..a new sense of direction which means that ambition is now well embedded’. Ofsted December 2009.

We seek to appoint a well-qualified, enthusiastic, dynamic, inspirational Vice Principal on his or her journey to Headship. The key skills for the post are leadership qualities which display energy, enthusiasm and genuine commitment to raising standards for all our students. A good understanding of data and how this can be used to raise standards and a deep understanding of how to develop excellent learning and teaching within the academy are essential. Experience of working at middle and senior level in preferably more than one 11-18 co-educational comprehensive school is a prerequisite for the post.

This post (the academy’s only Vice Principal) has become vacant as the result of the current postholder’s promotion to headship to a high school within Norfolk and offers a first class, challenging opportunity for someone with ambition, drive and determination to see that every child has an opportunity for success. A ‘can do’ attitude and genuine sense of humour are vital. The post holder must not only share the Governor’s vision for Wymondham High to become a centre of outstanding practice, but be prepared to

work unstintingly to ensure that this becomes a reality.

Should you wish to meet the Principal and have an informal visit to the academy prior to application, an open morning for prospective candidates will be
held on the 29th and 30th November. Please ring Mrs Brenda Roskilly, Principal’s PA on 01953 713177 to confirm attendance.

The Academy welcomes applications from members of minority ethnic communities and those with disabilities. If you would like further details and an application form, these can be found on our website, following the vacancy link on the Home page. Alternatively, write to or email us at the above address. Please apply by letter of application, enclosing a current CV and application form, quoting the appropriate job reference, to
Mrs Joanna Gillard-Eastop, Personnel Administrator.
Job Ref: 4060/T/JGI/056.

Closing date: 6 December 2012 9am.

Interview date: 17 and 18 December 2012.

Wymondham High is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
