The Warwick School has faced many challenges in the past year and is on a journey of rapid improvement. It is also part of Priority Schools Building Programme 2. This means we are in the process of building a state of the art facility, which includes 22 classroom building with hall, dining area and sports hall being built ready for moving into in January 2021.
This is a very exciting time to join the school, as it is in the process of building on the strong foundations of many successful years as a prominent and reputable school in the Redhill and Reigate area of Surrey. The school is part of SESSET (South East Surrey Schools Education Trust) which is made up of ourselves, Therfield School, Leatherhead and The Ashcombe School, Dorking. Mr David Blow is the CEO of the Multi Academy Trust. It is a relatively new partnership, built on a mutual respect for each other. Within the Trust each school remains autonomous in many decisions made and in their own vision.
The Warwick School has 7 forms of entry and a PAN of 210 in each year group. It serves the local community with students feeding in from local primary schools in the area of Redhill, Merstham, Reigate and Horley. We have a fully comprehensive intake; each Year Group includes a number of students with Education and Health Care Plans but also others capable of achieving the top grades, across the curriculum at Key Stage 4. The Senior Leadership Team includes the Headteacher, two Senior Deputy Headteachers, one Deputy Headteacher, three Assistant Headteachers and a team of senior middle leaders who have responsibility for key curriculum areas.
We have good relationships with our neighbouring secondary schools and are a partner school with the two nearby 16-19 colleges; Reigate College and East Surrey College.
The Warwick School staff are a team of professionals who dedicate their lives to providing students with a high quality education ‘Every Lesson, Every Day’. The students want to learn, however under the new progress measures we are not always ensuring that every child makes expected progress and this underpins work we are undertaking with some urgency. There is a desire from the students to be involved in active lessons with opportunities to be creative and engage in meaningful discussions. We are aiming to strive for excellence in all the work that we do and to be the number one choice for parents in our community.
We know how important provision of career opportunities is and will be expecting staff to be ambitious in their own development; our commitment to staff is to encourage attendance at recognised conferences, to study for an MA / recognised leadership qualification, to collaborate with schools in the local area and the MAT and / or to engage with research around teaching and learning.
I am looking for people who can work as a team but who can work independently and are confident to take initiative when required; someone who is driven, prepared to take risks, not afraid to challenge or be challenged and who is personable and flexible. In short, we want people who have a passion for improving life chances for students.
I am keen to speak with you further should you be interested in a position within our school
