Brockington College is a highly successful 11-16 college, where students enjoy ‘learning to live life to the full’. We are a founding member of Embrace Multi Academy Trust, which aims to achieve the best possible outcomes for all our stakeholders, including members of staff.
We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic, positive and forward-thinking assistant principal, who has high aspirations for student achievement and success, as well as proven leadership skills. Reporting directly to the principal, we are looking for a dynamic and ambitious individual to lead on whole school student progress reporting, student outcomes and timetabling. You will need to possess the right skills and experience to really make an impact from the start.
You will need to be an outstanding teacher, have high expectations of oneself, care passionately about the young people in your care and their learning, and have the energy and resilience to take up this exciting challenge. Outstanding communication skills and the personal authority to build strong relationships with students, staff and parents are essential, as is a deep commitment to the school’s aims and values.
The successful candidate will work alongside and support the work of the existing senior leadership team; as with all teams, responsibilities are reviewed periodically to ensure that colleagues are able to develop their skills and experiences across the range of whole school leadership roles. This appointment provides a fantastic opportunity for a suitably qualified candidate in a school that values its members of staff. If you have the ability to inspire and lead others and contribute to the ongoing success of the college, then we are keen to hear from you.
Brockington College is a Church of England Academy, attended by students from a variety of faith backgrounds and our strong Christian ethos is the firm foundation for all that we do.

Members of staff enjoy a range of CPD and INSET opportunities, a robust support system for NQTs, free car parking, weekly sports opportunities, voluntary prayer meetings alongside other wellbeing opportunities. The school runs a wide variety of enrichment opportunities for students, as well as a range of residential trips, which members of staff support both near and far, from the Forest of Dean and Norfolk to Iceland, Kenya and China.
