Current Teaching Vacancies

Deputy Head (Pastoral)

Salary negotiable depending on experience

A unique opportunity has arisen to work as Deputy Head (Pastoral) in a Christian setting. Trinity School was established in 2013 by a group of local Christian leaders and parents and today, 780 students occupy a state of the art building. Demand for places is extremely high and a building programme has begun to accommodate increasing student numbers.

Trinity school has a broad and holistic approach to education embodied in our strapline ‘Education for Life in all its Fullness’. Our Christian ethos pervades everything and is central to who we are and what we do. A calm and friendly culture exists and the partnership with parents and other stakeholders is strong.

The Pastoral Deputy Head will play an integral role in building upon recent successes. Trinity School achieved a respectable first set of GCSE results last summer, which we expect to better this year, an ‘Outstanding’ Section 48 inspection and a solid ‘Good’ Ofsted rating. The Sixth Form started in September 2018 attracting an exceptional group of students.

We are looking for a person who has a proven and impressive track-record for high standards, who has the drive and energy to get things done and continually seeks to improve the educational experience of students. You will be a strong teacher and be able to show how you have supported other teachers as well as demonstrate an excellent record of exam results.

The Pastoral Deputy Head will be uncompromising in his/her pursuit of excellence and be able to challenge and inspire others to do likewise. The role does not require the person to be a practising Christian but it will be expected that they will support the Christian ethos of the school fully. Naturally, integrity and other personal qualities that align themselves with Christian principles will be expected.

You will be someone who currently holds a senior leadership position and has a good understanding of the changing educational landscape and areas that pertain to the pastoral care of young people.

The right person will be given the autonomy and trust to help take Trinity School to the next level in its journey. You will also benefit from working with a committed team of staff and incredible students. The Deputy Head (Pastoral) will also work closely with the Deputy Head (Academic).

You are most welcome to visit Trinity School.

Candidates are also asked to write a short letter of no more than one side of A4 to the headmaster explaining how they will support the Christian ethos (Trinity Way) in practical ways. Letters should be sent separately to Karen Partridge at hr@trinitysevenoaks.com

Our school and all its personnel are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of students.  The successful applicant will be subject to a full Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) disclosure and checks regarding proof of ID, medical clearance and the right to work in the UK.
