Head of School

Head of School
Roselands Primary School
Riviera Education Trust
L11 (£52,642) – L16 (£59,527)


We are seeking a leader who cares deeply about improving the life chances of our children and making a difference to our community. Whether first-time or existing Head, if you can offer leadership that inspires and motivates others to be the best version of themselves; if you have a deep understanding of how children learn and succeed; and if you thrive in an environment of collaboration, support and challenge, then we would love to hear from you.

We can offer you:

  • An experienced Trust leadership team that invests in staff development and will offer guidance and coaching as you begin in your role as Head of School
  • A dedicated and hard-working staff who will seek out direction from a positive new leader
  • Trust expertise in finance, HR and premises, so that you can focus on learning
  • Access to our highly successful teaching school that places an emphasis on research based CPD for all staff

If you:

  • Have the knowledge and understanding to support teachers in achieving the highest standards in attainment, progress and personal behaviours
  • Have strong leadership, management and communication skills to motivate a staff team, pupil body and community, to secure sustainable improvement
  • Are excited about the opportunity to be part of a forward-looking Trust, and recognise that formally aligned systems and collaboration can support individual schools in serving their unique communities to the benefit of all children
  • Understand what makes a school exceptional and have the skills, character and resilience to develop this

We understand that this cannot be done by one person working alone. The Head of School at Roselands offers the opportunity to work as part of a team of senior leaders comprising NLE, SLEs, Maths Mastery specialists and educationalists who are recognised for their work at both local and national levels through both our Trust and Teaching School Alliance.

This is a wonderful opportunity to join a highly regarded Trust where you will make a difference. 

For more information about the role and how you can become a part of our team, please contact Stewart Biddles, CEO of the Trust. Please email Wendy Vreony, PA to the CEO:
