Oak Learning Partnership is seeking to appoint an inspiring, compassionate and dedicated Headteacher for Elms Bank School and College.

Elms Bank is a school with a real sense of community! We are delighted to be part of a family of schools within the Oak Learning Partnership.

Oak Learning Partnership is passionate about inclusion and improving the life chances of all children within the trust. As a school in the trust, we pride ourselves on being a welcoming school with a strong emphasis on pastoral care, alongside a rigorous academic education tailored to the needs of the individual.

We believe in and practice personalised learning to meet the very different needs of all our students. We strive to deliver an outstanding service for all the young people in our care.

Elms Bank offers a holistic provision. Our students’ achievements and successes are celebrated widely. We use innovative and aspirational strategies to increase students’ resilience and confidence to overcome barriers to ensure their lives are enriched both now and into adulthood.

On behalf of the school, the trust is seeking to appoint an inspiring, compassionate and dedicated Headteacher who is eager to make an impact and works to build strong, supportive connections with staff, pupils, families and the wider community.

The trust is deeply committed to inclusivity and enhancing the opportunities for our students. Elms Bank, as part of the trust, values its reputation as a welcoming and supportive school, placing significant importance on both pastoral support and personalised academic learning. Prospective candidates should demonstrate unwavering commitment to student progress, displaying innovation and creativity in their approaches and consistently engage in reflection to enhance outcomes for our pupils.

Elms Bank School and College proudly strives to change its children’s lives. It has demonstrated through a recent outstanding Ofsted inspection (2023) that “Pupils enjoy an abundance of rich and exciting opportunities. The school includes and values every pupil”. Therefore, the ideal candidate should possess an avid dedication to supporting students with special educational needs and should strive to enhance teaching and learning standards in an environment where everyone is genuinely appreciated, supported and collaboratively works towards changing lives through a deeply inclusive educational method. 

This role is best suited for those with extensive experience in special education settings and a thorough comprehension of curriculum design and child development principles.
