    Give us as much detail as possible ensuring you tell us all of your work and education history.  At least one of your references must be from your most recent or current employer and we need 2 references before interview. We also don't accept CV's, so it's really important you complete your application form as best you can.

  • Read the supporting statement question carefully and ensure you answer it fully.


    The supporting statement is your opportunity to tell the panel that you are the person for the job – you have the experience and skills to meet their needs. By illustrating the criteria outlined in the person specification, with relevant examples of evidence and impact from your career to date, the panel should be excited to meet you and hear more about how you can add value to their school.


    You have one shot at securing yourself an interview – to convince the panel of:

    • What you have done in the past

    • What you are doing in your current role that is useful to them

    • Your vision for the future

    • How your strengths and skills can add value to the new school

    • How your experiences to date can be used in the new context
