Welcome to Lady Bankes Junior School

Thank you for expressing an interest in our Headteacher vacancy at Lady Bankes Junior School. We hope this website gives you an insight into our school and the opportunities that we have to offer. This is an exciting opportunity for a talented, motivated and ambitious school leader.

We are a caring, inclusive, and most importantly happy school where we want children to develop a love for learning in an environment where they can thrive.

We are looking for a leader who is going to build on the progress that has already been made and who puts children at the centre of everything. A leader who is passionate about improving educational outcomes, where no child is left behind and someone who works in partnership with parents and staff.

A visible leader with the ability to inspire and support staff and children.

The junior school recently federated with the infant school to form one joint governing body across both schools. With this in mind we are looking for a leader that can work effectively both with the federated governing body and the infant school to develop a shared vision and strategy which inspires and motivates children.

In return you will join a fantastic community school that works closely with an outstanding infant school and a supportive governing body. Together we will work with you to drive through the school improvement plan and really make a difference to our children.

This role isn't for everybody nor is it a traditional headship role - it needs a special kind of person and if you think you are that person, we would be delighted to receive your application form.

Our children are the best ambassadors for the school and we would love you to visit the school so that you can meet them and they can demonstrate what it means to be part of our school community. Once again thank you for your interest and we look forward to reading your application.

Yours faithfully

Joanna Wagstaffe

Chair of Governors
