Job/Person Summary

Crestwood Community School is one school, with two campuses serving central Eastleigh. We are looking to appoint an experienced Senior Leader to be Head of School for our Shakespeare Campus to start in September 2024. This exciting opportunity has arisen as a result of our successful current Head of School relocating, at the end of the current academic year, to a post abroad. The successful candidate will be joining a Core Senior Leadership Team consisting of a Headteacher, who has been at the school since 2006, and the Head of School on the Cherbourg Campus who has been in post since 2016. The wider SLT consists of 8 Assistant Headteachers and 9 Achievement Leaders, split across both campuses.

The Headteacher works across both campuses and Core SLT meets every morning, virtually, to keep abreast of the current issues. The Heads of School are responsible for the day to day operational needs of their campus, as well helping shape, with the core and wider SLT, the strategic direction of the whole school.

Crestwood Community School is committed to excellence through empowering all learners to achieve success, whatever their starting points and wherever they come from. Our priorities are that every learner achieves and makes good progress; to promote a positive learning culture that challenges and empowers and to raise aspirations for all in our learning community. Our students are Ready, Responsible and Respectful and these simple morals enable them to fulfil every aspect of their potential.
