At The Limes Primary Academy we are looking for an exceptional Deputy Headteacher to join our Leadership Team. We are looking for someone who is up for a challenge and wants to get stuck in with all aspects of our academy life! This is not just another job. This is the chance to be part of something exciting and worthwhile.

We can offer you:

  • A firm commitment to you and your professional development
  • Friendly, supportive, enthusiastic and hardworking colleagues, staff and governors
  • A growing learning community
  • Encouragement to develop new ideas and the opportunity to make a real difference
  • Coaching and mentoring from the academy’s Headteacher

  • And, most importantly, AMAZING children just waiting to meet you.

The Headteacher is now looking to appoint the next wave of staff to join the team in having the unique opportunity to build and grow the school from its infancy. There is no doubt about it, setting up the academy from scratch takes vision, dedication and hard work, but being part of that exciting and rare journey will be very rewarding, seeing the academy take shape over the next few years and being part of that vision and growth from the start.
