This is an incredibly exciting and important time for the educational provision in Tonyrefail and I hope that
you will wish to be part of this wonderful opportunity for our children. We are seeking to appoint a highly motivated individual who will join us in our drive towards excellence in rugby union.
As a team we will lead a truly all-through learning experience, which will be exciting, fully inclusive and
highly successful. Our young people will be encouraged to develop as individuals with an ability to articulate their learning, showcase their creativity and talent and feel proud of their national culture. We will not only lead our school to success but also model high aspiration and represent something good for the future so that our young people understand the world and how to change it for the better.
We will set ourselves the high standards that will allow us to become excellent practitioners and leaders as
well as creating opportunities for career development. We will create a culture in which openness and an active willingness to share and promote the very best practice are key factors in the drive for improvement in our school. We will be outward facing and build relationships with local schools and the wider education community, to learn from them and to share our own expertise. Above all we will have a genuine passion for the work that we do.
Tonyrefail Community School is seeking to appoint self-motivated, self-disciplined colleagues who are
driven to do the best they can. In return our school is an enjoyable place to be for all who learn and work in it. It is positive and energetic; a place that feels good about itself. Our children are taught in an encouraging atmosphere surrounded by the optimism and aspiration that will allow them to develop as highly competent, resilient and determined young people. Every child who graduates from Tonyrefail Community School will have the confidence, self-awareness and resilience to successfully take their ambitious next steps.
We are looking for leaders who value the success of their colleagues as much as their own and whilst we set high standards for behaviour across the school, every pupil is treated with respect and feels included.
Our team is honest, generous and open. It is supportive of each other and innovation is encouraged with talents and ideas nurtured. We create a safe learning environment for all who work here. Our Leadership team strives to create a no fear culture where open and honest self-reflection is expected for improvement and where excellence and going the extra mile is rewarded.
Whilst all prior experience will be valued please remain mindful that this is a new school and a new way of working. This is a role for visionary practitioners who are excited about the future of education in Wales and the possibilities that an all through provision within a state-of-the-art setting can provide. This
opportunity to introduce only that which has true educational value is a rare and exhilarating one. If you are excited about the possibilities that an all through setting can bring to the development of rugby, and share our vision for an excellent school then we very much welcome an application to join us.
