We are looking for an exceptional Vice Principal to help lead the next stage of our journey. Pimlico Academy is an exciting place to work; our students are high-achieving and ambitious, our staff are committed and very well qualified, and we have a shared ambition that all of the students we serve deserve the very best education.
Pimlico Academy is proud to be part of Future Academies. Our motto, libertas per cultum (‘freedom through education’), is the clearest distillation of our vision for education. We have an absolute belief in the power of education to empower individuals, to transform lives and to shape a better world. We believe that having access to a first-rate knowledge-rich curriculum, supported by a comprehensive co-curriculum, is a prerequisite to developing understanding, cultural literacy, good character and, ultimately, wisdom.
The school works in collaboration with Future Academies’ Curriculum Centre, where a team of subject-specialists and researchers continually develop and rework curriculum resources, using evidence from the best practice in our schools as well as the latest in pedagogical and cognitive research. We have a thriving Sixth Form, from which students routinely graduate to Oxbridge and Russell Group universities. We have an extensive co-curricular programme, a talented music department and a heritage of impressive school productions. For an inner London comprehensive school, our facilities are second to none. The principal’s ambition, shared with the Director of Education and sponsors, is that Pimlico Academy becomes one of the best schools in England – a beacon of educational excellence. For our new Vice Principal, it will be a career-defining role.
The successful candidate will lead with confidence and conviction, and will be passionate about the power of education to transform lives. They will demonstrate impeccable professionalism, unwavering determination and relentless optimism. They will lead by example and be a source of inspiration, support and guidance to colleagues. They will have the highest expectations of every student, in terms of achievement, character and conduct. They will love their subject and cultivate a similar passion in their students.
We look forward to receiving your application.
