Do you believe that you have the drive and dedication to ensure that all children develop a lifelong love of learning?
Sandfield School's ethos is to develop each pupil's self-belief, so all children feel important, valued and that they belong.
The Headteacher and Governing Body wish to appoint a highly motivated, innovative and professional Deputy Headteacher to help lead and shape the future of our very successful school. In return, the successful candidate will receive continued professional learning and support to develop their excellent leadership skills even further.
Sandfield is a vibrant school with lots of Victorian character and hidden gems tucked away in the heart of Guildford. The buildings compromise of a pond area, an outdoor fully equipped technology hub, a stunning library, outdoor sports pitch and more. Our children are wonderful, polite and have exceptional behaviour. We work as a strong, supportive team who strive for success and put children into the heart of everything we do.

"The behaviour of pupils is outstanding"
"Pupils make extremely good progress in reading in Key Stage 2 so that a higher proportion than average reach both the expected and higher levels. This is due to the emphasis leaders place on the use of high-quality texts and the importance of reading well"
"The quality of teaching and learning across the school and is a range of subjects is at least good. Teachers know pupils need to learn and plan lessons to enable pupils to make good progress over time"
We are looking for an enthusiastic, inspiring leader who:
- understands curriculum, teaching and learning and can lead on school improvement.
- subscribes to the belief that all children can achieve.
- has a clear vision and is continually learning
- has the ability to meet, model and lead high expectations and challenge
- has a strong commitment to work collaboratively with all stakeholders
