All Saints Catholic College is looking for a practising Catholic school leader ‘in the making’, a shining star who will flourish in the standalone role of Vice Principal.

All Saints is a successful 11 – 16 voluntary aided comprehensive school with around 860 students. The College is located in the town of Huddersfield, close to the Pennines, midway between Leeds and Manchester. The College has a climate of high expectations where students thrive in a diverse learning community - achieving a DfE Pupil Premium Regional Award in February 2015, being judged ‘Good’ by Ofsted in June 2017 and ‘Outstanding’ in our Section 48 Inspection in May 2018. We have also achieved the Secondary Geography Quality Mark 2019-2020 and The Quality in Careers Standard 2019.


This is an exciting opportunity for an Assistant or Deputy Head (and practising Catholic) who can show evidence of impact across most areas of school leadership, most notably in the categories as defined by the Ofsted Framework and in student outcomes.


The Principal, who joined the College in January 2018, is looking to appoint a standalone Vice Principal to complete her Senior Leadership Team, working closely alongside her, the SLT and the whole school community as they seek to achieve excellence in all aspects of College life.


Specific responsibilities are not prescribed. Both Governors and the Principal simply wish to recruit the most able Catholic school leader, who comes equipped with proven leadership and management skills; who is approachable, empathetic and who will contribute to the Catholic Vision and strategic direction of the school.
