Thank you for your interest in the post of Headteacher at Five Acres High School.
Five Acres High School is a happy, vibrant and welcoming all-inclusive 11–16 Academy with approximately 600 pupils, in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire. We are a proud member of the Greenshaw Learning Trust, a ‘family’ of like-minded schools, that collaborate to provide mutual support, share their good practice and learn from each other, whilst retaining and developing their own distinctive character.
Five Acres has improved rapidly since it joined the Greenshaw Learning Trust in September 2017 and we are proud of our success, but we are not complacent. We are keen to improve further and our aim is to become an outstanding school in the very near future.
This is an exciting opportunity for an inspirational, aspirational and experienced senior leader, motivating the committed staff of Five Acres High School and working with the wider Trust, to lead Five Acres on its journey of improvement.
The school website provides a clear picture of our aspirations and our vision.
However, please do not hesitate to contact us to seek further information. You are welcome to have an informal conversation and/or to visit the school prior to application – please contact Ms Rimell by email.
I enclose a recruitment pack and very much look forward to receiving applications from candidates whose personal qualities, values and experiences support and reflect ours.
