This brand new school will seek to transform the educational provision and the lives of pupils served by the school. The Council in partnership with the Diocese of Wrexham has worked to establish and develop a brand new 3-16 Catholic school in the town of Rhyl, Denbighshire, to replace the existing Primary and Secondary schools.
Plans are in progress to build a new £23m school for the pupils by September 2019, as part of the 21st Century Schools and Education programme and the first stage of the education journey will be the appointment of the Headteacher who can transform the educational provision. The post holder will be appointed 9 months in advance of the opening of the new school to enable the postholder to shape the vision for the new school in partnership with the Temporary Governing Body, including developing the Senior Leadership Team for the new school.
We are looking to appoint an exceptional, dynamic, resilient and innovative Headteacher to lead us through this journey and grow the school. We are looking for a leader who has the ability to challenge, inspire and motivate colleagues through this change. We want someone with the passion to provide the best possible learning and teaching across both the primary and secondary curriculum.
Rhyl as a town is regenerating, however the area the school predominately serves is a community where deprivation exists and both current schools have significant Free School meal percentages. A knowledge of how to meet the needs of these pupils will be needed to ensure the school is a success.
This position provides a significant challenge in many areas. However it also represents an exciting and unique opportunity for a passionate and highly skilled leader with significant experience to shape and develop a unique offer to the area.
