Required from September 2019.

Walker Riverside Academy, a ‘Good school with many outstanding aspects’ (Ofsted Inspection September 2017), is seeking to appoint a talented and passionate leader with a proven track record of improving English attainment and achievement who is ready to make contributions to the wider development of our Academy.

Our 2017 OFSTED report also recognised that “leaders and governors are determined that every pupil should succeed and meet their potential, regardless of any barriers. All staff treat pupils with respect and are committed to providing them with a high standard of education. They are proud to work at the school and as a result morale is high.”

This is an exciting opportunity for the right candidate to become part of an experienced and supportive leadership team where they will not only work closely with the English Faculty, but also lead on whole school improvements in literacy and the outcomes for our high prior attaining students. You will hold young people at the heart of your decision making and will be able to inspire students and teachers alike to be the very best they can be.

This Academy is totally committed to child safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and all applications will be closely scrutinised to this end. The successful applicant will be required to obtain an Enhanced Certificate of Disclosure from the DBS and pass a range of other recruitment checks.

As this post involves working with children, vulnerable adults or dealing with sensitive information, written references will be taken up and made available to interviewers before the final selection stage; even if you indicate otherwise.

Application forms and further details are available directly from our website at or by contacting us by telephone on 0191 295 8660, or by email at
