St Richard Gwyn is a mixed 11-16 Voluntary Aided Catholic School located in the Vale of Glamorgan. As the only Faith secondary school in the Vale our students are drawn from a wide area and we are over subscribed in each year group. Christ is at the heart of everything we do in school. Our strategic aim is to be a leading school in Wales and ensure that all our students experience high quality teaching which inspires them to make excellent progress and become lifelong learners. We pride ourselves on our Christian ethos, on our care and respect for each other and we celebrate the uniqueness of each individual. The school has developed positively in recent years and we are looking to maintain that momentum.
The Governors are looking to appoint a Headteacher who:
• is a practising Catholic
• has significant recent experience as a Secondary school leader to at least Assistant/Deputy Head level
• is a highly motivated and inspirational leader who will continue to move the school forward towards its goals
• will build on the current strategic vision
• will continue the development of curriculum delivery and pupil outcomes
• will maintain our strong Christian ethos and commitment to Gospel values.
The Governing Body have a clear vision on how they expect the school to operate, its targets and its expectations of the opportunity that will be afforded to all students and their parents and carers. This will require a leader who can demonstrate their ambition and drive and how this has been harnessed in their current position.
The NPQH qualification is required for this post.
