Vacancy: Head of Primary Phase

An exceptional and rare opportunity has arisen to lead the primary phase (EYFS to KS2) of Hampshire’s first all-through school, recently graded as “outstanding” (Ofsted, November 2023). Employees of The Westgate School are “incredibly proud to work at this school” and we invite you to be part of our success.

We require an exceptional and experienced leader who is optimistic, self-disciplined and professionally generous in their approach. The successful candidate will be working alongside a team of highly skilled and professional colleagues. A strong commitment to professional learning and engagement in developing educational practice is essential for this role.

The post is a significant role in which the successful candidate will be responsible for the overall leadership and management of the Primary Phase. It presents a rare opportunity to experience leadership in a large but warm setting, to maintain high quality educational provision across the phases and, to work in partnership the Headteacher in taking the school on the next phase of its journey.

The role attracts significant remuneration to reflect the direct responsibility for Rotherly Day Nursery, a separate childcare setting on-site for children aged three months to four years led by a manager with oversight from a dedicated committee of governors.

The Westgate School has a strong tradition where pupils excel because of the exceptional partnership that exists between adults and young people: “pupils’ behaviour is exemplary” (Ofsted, 2023). The successful candidate will be committed to the vision of an all-through school and will have a strong understanding of primary and secondary phase education.

We invite you to be part of our success.
