Assistant Head (Academic)

Full Time Permanent
Website OLAabingdon
Independent / Secondary with sixth form
Our Lady's Abingdon

OLA is a Catholic, co-educational, independent day school welcoming pupils aged 7 to 18 of all faiths and none.  The post of Assistant Head (Academic) is a new role and has arisen as a result of a recent restructuring of the Leadership Team. The LT also includes the Head, the COO (Chief Operating Officer), Deputy Head, Assistant Head (Pastoral and DSL) and Assistant Head (Operations and Mental Health Lead).

As Assistant Head (Academic), the successful candidate will be responsible for achieving and sustaining the highest academic standards and levels of attainment within the school. All Heads of Department will report to the Assistant Head (Academic), and this role is ideal for a person who is committed to the highest standards of teaching and learning and, more importantly, is aware of how to implement development planning, Quality Assurance systems and Performance Management strategies to ensure pupils fulfil their potential.

This will be a challenging and immensely fulfilling role for the right candidate. OLA is ambitious for the future and we are looking for an equally ambitious person who can work effectively with the other members of the Leadership Team in driving the school forward. We wish to grow the school numbers and reinvest in OLA for the future.

If you feel that you have the drive and ambition to complement our Leadership Team, we would be delighted to hear from you. Full details of the role and application process are available in the application pack on TES website.

Application deadline: 12.00 noon, Friday 01 October 2021
