Due to the continued development and improvement of our Academy, we are seeking to appoint a Deputy Headteacher.

This is an exciting opportunity to make a significant contribution to the further development of City Academy Norwich, a dynamic, single Academy Trust supported by the Bohunt Education Trust in Norwich.
The school opened in state-of-the-art accommodation in September 2012 and has a wealth of modern facilities. We have grown in pupil numbers over the last two years as a result of improved reputation with a year 7 cohort of 150.

Our ethos is simple: Enjoy, Respect, Achieve. Above all we value a love of learning and actively promote the characteristics that make lifelong learners such as curiosity, hard work, critical thinking and a thirst for knowledge. We champion values that will ensure our learners make the world a better place including empathy, tolerance and kindness. Our students are empowered and supported which enables them to build life skills such as resilience, confidence and courage. This will help them to overcome obstacles that may stand in the way of achieving their potential. We are looking for someone who will share this vision and drive our school’s continual growth.
Specific responsibilities will be assigned to the successful candidate dependent upon experience, career aspirations and individual strengths.
