Both schools are single sex, non-denominational comprehensive schools with their own distinct identities, but sharing a common ethos of academic aspiration, strong personal development and inclusive practice. They are located on adjoining sites with a ‘campus’ feel and a joint co-education 6th form centre. Both schools are committed to working in partnership going forwards.

We can offer lively and engaged students, talented and dedicated staff, and a strong group of governors who will share your commitment to the value of high quality strategic and operational leadership in raising standards and provide you with the right blend of support and challenge. As a leader in both schools you will show adaptability and flexibility across a wide school brief and the ability to manage change effectively.

Both schools are active participants in the four-school LaSWAP sixth form consortium, are founder members of the Camden Learning partnership and play a full part in Camden’s vibrant community of schools.

  • Demonstrate previous experience of delivering projects and initiatives to improve the quality of education, maximise revenue streams and deliver cost efficiencies.

Potential candidates are strongly encouraged to visit the school websites, and arrange a face to face visit in advance of applying.
