The Directors of the Vyners Learning Trust wish to appoint an inspirational and talented senior leader with proven strategic leadership experience across the 11 to 18 age range in a high performing school, to join Vyners School at an exciting stage of its development.

We wish to appoint a Deputy Headteacher to work alongside the newly appointed Headteacher and staff in the task of taking Vyners on the next stage of its journey to becoming an outstanding school by continuing the school’s sustained improvement and its transition from a six to eight form entry intake in 2019.

Vyners is a very popular and oversubscribed, mixed six form entry, 11-18 comprehensive school, situated in a pleasant residential area in North West London, bordering Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire.    We have a track record of real success at all Key Stages and this led to us being invited to become a Leading Edge School in 2016. GCSE results are excellent and we are now consistently ranked in the top 100 non-selective state schools in England. In 2017 84% of students achieved a Grade 4+ in both English and Maths at GCSE and we expect to be ranked in the top 10% of all schools nationally for progress measures.  At A-Level, results are consistently strong and in recent years we have been ranked amongst the top sixth form providers in the country for progress measures. The school is the lead school in the Vyners Learning Trust which also includes a primary school and is one of the founding members of a new secondary Free school. The school has secured funding for a significant capital building programme that will include a new two-storey teaching block and artificial sports field with work scheduled to start this autumn.

We want our new Deputy Headteacher to have:

An expert knowledge about the process of learning

Excellent interpersonal and leadership skills

The ability to make a difference and the aspiration to become a Headteacher within five years

Uphold and strengthen Vyners’ well-established ethos and culture

Provide evidence of their impact as a senior leader on outcomes for students

Be committed to the continued development of both students and staff.

Responsibilities will be negotiated upon appointment although a passion for Teaching and Learning is essential in all our senior leaders. 

You will be working with a highly motivated staff, an experienced, high performing Senior Leadership Team and supportive Governing Body to build on the success and ethos already established.
