This is an incredibly exciting and important time for the educational provision in Tonyrefail and we hope that you will wish to be part of this wonderful opportunity for our children. We are looking to appoint an ambitious, innovative and highly motivated Head of Middle School to join our talented leadership team.
As a team of staff we lead a truly all-through learning experience, which is exciting, fully inclusive and highly successful. Our young people are encouraged to develop as individuals with an ability to articulate their learning, showcase their creativity and talent and feel proud of their national culture. We not only lead our school to success but also model high aspiration and represent something good for the future so that our young people understand the world and how to change it for the better.
Tonyrefail Community School is seeking to appoint self-motivated, self-disciplined colleagues who are driven to do the best they can. In return our school is an enjoyable place to be for all who learn and work in it. It is positive and energetic; a place that feels good about itself. Our children are taught in an encouraging atmosphere surrounded by the optimism and aspiration that allows them to develop as highly competent, resilient and determined young people. Every child who graduates from Tonyrefail Community School will have the confidence, self-awareness and resilience to successfully take their ambitious next steps.
We are looking for a leader who values the success of their colleagues as much as their own and whilst setting high standards for behaviour ensures that every pupil is treated with respect and feels included. Our team of staff are honest, generous and open. Our team is supportive of each other and innovation is encouraged with talents and ideas nurtured. We create a safe learning environment for all who work here. Our Leadership team strive to create a no fear culture where open and honest self-reflection is expected for improvement and where excellence and going the extra mile is rewarded.
Whilst all prior experience will be valued please remain mindful that this is a developing school and a new way of working. This is a role for visionary practitioners who are excited about the future of education in Wales and the possibilities that an all through provision within a state-of-the-art setting can provide. This opportunity to start a school from scratch and introduce only that which has true educational value is a rare and exhilarating one. If you are excited about the possibilities that an all through setting can bring to the development of young people and share our vision for an excellent school then we very much welcome an application to join us.
