Welcome from Sinead Colbeck, Executive Headteacher

Thank you for your interest in the position of Deputy Headteacher at our very special school. I feel extremely blessed to be the Executive Headteacher at St Anne’s and St Joseph’s, leading the school on the next stage in its journey.  We are looking for a determined, dedicated and innovative Deputy Headteacher to assist in delivering our vision of a high-quality Catholic education for all where each pupil can flourish.

This is a unique opportunity for a leader ready to take the next step on their Catholic leadership journey. You will be an integral part of our leadership team, responsible for driving the continued improvements across the school and deputising in my absence. You will work closely with leaders from St Augustine’s as we find and develop new ways of working across both schools, as well as working with other leaders across our Trust. The final areas of responsibility for the position will be decided based upon the strengths of the successful candidate.

My vision for St Anne’s and St Joseph’s is to be the school of choice in our area, offering an excellent and ambitious Catholic education whilst nurturing and supporting each individual child to be safe, happy and successful. I am excited about finding the right person to work alongside me to bring this vision to fruition.

We can offer you:

  • The opportunity to work alongside myself to create a leadership team committed to setting and delivering ambitious goals;
  • A growing and flourishing relationship with our parish and the Parish Priest;
  • A strong, supportive and dedicated staff team;
  • Unique provision which includes a forest school, 6 acres of land including woodland, a waterfall and deep, with opportunities for developing to support Pope Francis’ vision within Laudato Si;
  • As part of the Trust, support from the Central Team;
  • Committed pupils who are eager to learn, in an atmosphere where they all feel safe, valued and respected;
  • The opportunity to make a real difference to lives of the pupils and community we serve;
  • The opportunity to play a pivotal role in sustained school improvement.
