Headteacher, Parkwood E-ACT Academy


Parkwood E-ACT Academy

Closing date for applications:

April 2, 2024

Overview of role

Parkwood E-ACT Academy is an inclusive and culturally diverse, 11 – 16 secondary Academy, focused on providing the very best experience for our young people. We believe that every child can achieve and succeed. We look to instil high aspirations and expect all to challenge themselves and extend their knowledge and understanding within a supportive and caring environment.

We benefit from being part of E-ACT, an established multi-Academy Trust with 28 academies across the country. This enables Academy leaders to draw on the knowledge of national experts to share good practice and support each other. We have learnt a great deal as MATs have evolved. Having recently been chosen as the MAT of the Year 2023 at both the MAT Excellence Awards and National School Awards, we are excited about the future as we develop and grow.

Parkwood was rated “Good” by Ofsted in March 2023. We see this as a solid foundation to build upon but we have much more to do. We are looking for an emotionally intelligent leader with a vision of “excellence” to lead us on our journey. With a track record of successful school leadership and personal values that match our own, you will be comfortable working with and influencing a broad range of individuals and organisations both within and outside of the Academy.

You may be a Deputy looking to step up to a role at this level. We have the capacity to support such a transition for a talented leader. Alternatively, you may be an experienced Headteacher who is excited by the context of our school and the opportunity to lead and develop our provision further. Either way, leading others will be a strength and will set you apart.

We care deeply about delivering the highest quality of education for our young people.
