    St Jude’s is a happy and successful school with a very good reputation. Because our current Headteacher is moving on to take up the next challenge in her career, we are seeking a new Headteacher to continue to take forward our vision for a school where all children can thrive academically, emotionally, physically and spiritually.

    We are looking for an inspirational leader, committed to our identity as a Church of England School and driven by our Christian values of Love, Honesty, Forgiveness and Hope, who will help us bring about further improvement and achieve our goal to drive the school to excellence.

    We have 420 children eagerly looking forward to meeting their new Headteacher. In the children’s words:

    “Our school is warm, welcoming and wonderful! We love that each and every one of us is different, and that this is celebrated every day. We hope our new Headteacher continues to love and look after every child in the school, and knows how important it is to us that we have fun whilst we are learning.”

    If you can meet these expectations, along with those outlined in our person specification, we would be delighted to receive your application.

    The City of Portsmouth and surrounding area has much to offer and this position is an exciting opportunity for the right person to lead and inspire and play their part in shaping the future of this popular school, building on its successes.

    St Jude’s School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Enhanced DBS disclosure will be required prior to any offer of employment. For a copy of the school’s child protection policy, please email.
