Following the decision of the current Academic Deputy to focus uniquely on her class teaching, the Headmistress and Directors are inviting applications for ambitious and inspirational candidates for a new post of Deputy Head of Moor Allerton School. 

The school is restructuring the senior team to introduce a Deputy Headship with a minimal (or zero) teaching timetable in order to support the Headmistress in driving the school forward in all aspects of academic, pastoral, marketing and financial management. 

Moor Allerton is a co-educational, independent preparatory school in the leafy, affluent Didsbury area of Manchester. With two classes of no more than 20 in each year and significant recent re-development and expansion of the site, the school is an impressive canvas on which to make your mark. 

Moor Allerton is part of the Alpha Schools Group, which is led by educationalists and whose owner is a former Headmaster. You will be part of a larger community of individually-minded schools, affording opportunities for collaboration, inspiration and challenge from your fellow senior leaders. You will be encouraged through a programme of development, working ultimately towards the leadership of an Alpha School.

If you have:

· Outstanding communication and presentation skills

· A genuine open-mindedness and willingness to be challenged to learn about best practice (understanding of schools as a business)

· Sufficient energy to understand all facets of the school (and where necessary, the commitment to ‘roll up sleeves and DO’)

· Ambition and vision for school development – a drive to perfection

· Ability to motivate and develop staff

· A desire to be challenged towards your first Headship

then we would be interested in hearing from you… 

The Closing Date for Applications is 2 December 2018. First round interviews will be held on 13 and 14 of December. Final stage interviews will take place 18 December. 

Moor Allerton Preparatory School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of its children and shall conduct a robust recruitment process. All applicants are expected to engage fully with the requirements of this process. Any offer to join the school is made subject to a satisfactory Enhanced DBS check along with clearance on all other relevant safeguarding and child protection requirements.
