About the role

We reserve the right to make an appointment before the closing date, so early applications are encouraged.

The Governors of this highly successful, partially selective, mixed school invite applications for the post of Head of Year 12/13. This position is being advertised internally and externally. The Head of Year 12/13 will lead a cohort of students through their time in the Sixth Form, within a supportive and experienced professional team. The focus will be supporting the academic and personal development of our students. We have high expectations of our students, and seek to offer them not only an outstanding education but also varied extra and super curricular, and leadership opportunities. The post holder would play a key part in the development and delivery of these, as well as supporting the students personally and in their classroom learning. The Head of Year 12/13 would work closely with the Head of Sixth Form and their counterpart in the other year group to develop and deliver the best possible support. The teaching team is well supported by colleagues whose full time role is to support students personally (the Pastoral Manager), academically (the Learning Manager) and both our UCAS and Careers leads.

In 2019 the school achieved a Progress 8 score of +0.65 and 93% of students achieved 5 or more grades 9-4 including English and Maths at GCSE and 84% of A level entries were graded A*-B.

The school is situated on an attractive 35-acre site in the Green Belt, has excellent facilities and is committed to an extensive programme of staff development.  Central London is easily reached by rail from Potters Bar and the school is close to motorway links.

The Governing Body is committed to admitting the children of staff in line with our admissions procedures.
