Are you passionate about continually improving student personal development?  Do you want to join an outstanding team?  We are seeking to appoint an exceptional leader to the position of Assistant Principal to increase our management capacity and expertise to maintain a focus and emphasis on student personal development.

The successful candidate will share our vision and ambition and have the passion and determination to raise standards of academic attainment and progress.  Ideally, with a proven track record of school improvement, we are looking for candidates who can engage, motivate and inspire both staff and students alike, raising aspirations and going the extra mile.

New College is an outstanding place to work and study, regularly near the top of UK Sixth Form College results tables and awarded outstanding in all areas by Ofsted.  With a dynamic, positive and supportive culture for staff and students, we have an enviable reputation for staff career progression and development.  With over 2500 students, New College Pontefract is the founding member of the New Collaborative Learning Trust (NCLT).  New College Pontefract, New College Doncaster and New College Bradford work closely together, presenting exciting opportunities for collaboration, support, development and progression.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious candidate to join our dynamic team at the forefront of change and to make a real difference to raising standards of education in the local community.  New College Pontefract delivers primarily A Level provision, alongside a number of Level 3 BTEC qualifications and some Level 2 provision.
